In conjunction with the Ontario Jewish Archives’ current exhibition ‘Benjamin Brown: Architect’ (at Urbanspace Gallery until April 23, 2016), Shelley Hornstein (professor, Architectural History & Visual Culture at York University), Daniel Rotsztain (urban geographer/artist) and Maggie Hutcheson (community-engaged artist, educator and consultant) will share their insights on the intersections of memory, urban sites and architecture in Toronto. With host Nick Hutcheson.
We’ll also screen an 8-minute documentary, exploring contemporary perspectives on Benjamin Brown’s buildings, and how they stand as testaments to the past, while re-purposed for today.
With special live music from singer/songwriter Rebecca Campbell.
