Dear Ayeeyo opened at Daniels Spectrum in 2018, and since then the exhibit has traveled to England where it showed in six galleries including the Roundhouse London, The Black Cultural Archives and the Free Word Centre in Brixton. We’re proud to exhibit pieces from this collection at the Harbourfront Centre.

Where She Went, We Thrived is an exhibition in collaboration with Harbourfront Centre and supported by TD, that explores the magic and tenacity of Black womanhood. Black women have shaped the world we know today, and this exhibit pays tribute to the tools, strategies and traditions our ancestors wielded for their survival—enabling future generations to succeed.
