Event Details
Art by Oluseye Ogunlesi (he/him)

This art installation runs from June 9 to June 30

A vessel. A threshold. A space for reflection. 

Nigerian-Canadian multidisciplinary artist Oluseye Ogunlesi explores Canada’s role in the trans-Atlantic slave trade through his installation. Referencing the 27 slave ships that were built in Canada, this cathedral-like structure invites you into the hull of a ship, revealing passage and the fractured, untold, erased history of slavery in Canada. Built of wood, metal and found materials, Black Ark is an invitation to look back and move forward.
