TO Live presents… Ears, Eyes, Voice
February 20 – March 8Free
TO Live presents Ears, Eyes, Voice, a groundbreaking photography exhibition featuring 41 important visual works by renowned Black Canadian photojournalists Jules Elder, Eddie Grant, Diane Liverpool, Al Peabody and Jim Russell.
The combined archive of these five revolutionary photographers reveals a comprehensive and rare record that visually documents over three decades of stories that tell the important history of Toronto’s diverse Black communities.
Training their lens on politicians, community members, activists, and protesters, as well as entertainers and athletes, the images range from backstage with Peter Tosh and Tina Turner and early Caribana images to documenting farm workers, capturing images of political protests against the Toronto police and local anti-apartheid protests, to local Ebony fashion shows and the crowning of Miss Black Ontario.
Admission to Ears, Eyes, Voice is free.
Ears, Eyes, Voice is organized and circulated by Black Artists’ Networks in Dialogue (BAND) and curated by Dr. Julie Crooks.
Exhibition hours: Thursday to Sunday from 1 to 6 p.m.
Exhibition is also open to anyone attending other events at Meridian Arts Centre.
