Koffler Salon: Memory and Architecture
Monday, March 21, 2016, 7–9:30 PM
Artscape Youngplace, 180 Shaw Street
In conjunction with the Koffler Centre of the Arts, the Ontario Jewish Archives’ exhibition Benjamin Brown: Architect (at Urbanspace Gallery until April 23, 2016) formed the backdrop to an eclectic evening of art, ideas, conversation and drinks hosted by Nick Hutcheson. Shelley Hornstein (professor, Architectural History & Visual Culture at York University), Daniel Rotsztain (urban geographer/artist) and Maggie Hutcheson (community-engaged artist, educator and consultant) shared their insights on the intersections of memory, urban sites and architecture in Toronto to a capacity crowd.
The evening also included a screening of the OJA's short film, BUILDING HISTORY: THE STORY OF BENJAMIN BROWN as well as a special live musical performance by singer/songwriter Rebecca Campbell.
