Click to celebrate black art

the other side of the sun brings together works that explore themes of resilience, expansion, identity, world-making & shifted perspective.

Featuring works by Idil Djafer, Hameeda Mahmoud, jamilah malika abu-bakare, and Alexander Robinson, this exhibition spans generations and disciplines, bridging themes and community.

Throughout their residency these artists have stretched, experimented, and broadened their practices, learning new and creative ways of making and engaging with other artists and arts professionals with Nia Centre as their studio and home base.

“We are a myriad, not a monolith and Toronto’s Black artistic community shines bright.”
