Spadina Museum art exhibit centring Black culture extended until May


Guided tours, quaint artifacts, and historical recreations are a part of any museum visit, but old history meets contemporary culture at Spadina Museum, where the Dis/Mantle exhibit places artistic representations of historical Black figures alongside portraits of Toronto Raptors.

Dis/Mantle is part of the Awakenings program by the Toronto History Museums, a series of art projects by artists who are Black, Indigenous, and people of colour.

The exhibit reframes the Spadina Museum with Mary Louisa Pipkin, the real-life laundress at the house in the 1870s, as the homeowner of the house, which itself is reimagined as a sanctuary for those escaping slavery.
