A Mobile and Visible Carriage

Join me for an Opening Reception on Wednesday, June 28th at the Art Gallery of Ontario as one of 36 artists included in this new exhibition titled Every. Now. Then: Reframing Nationhood.

In 1837 Thornton and Lucy Blackburn’s taxicab was the first and only cab in Upper Canada (present day Southern Ontario). It made visible the Blackburn's lived experience in Toronto and stands as evidence of a people who were at the vanguard of society.
