Join us at the Art Museum at the University of Toronto for the Drift: Art and Dark Matter exhibition tour with Agnes Etherington curator Sunny Kerr and a performance by artist Nadia Lichtig. Kerr will lead us through the exhibition’s interdisciplinary themes, exploring how Drift‘s artists approach dark matter; Lichtig will present an in-person engagement with her artwork Blank Spots, featured in Drift.

Drift: Art and Dark Matter is a residency and exhibition project organized by Agnes Etherington Art Centre, in partnership with the Arthur B. McDonald Canadian Astroparticle Physics Research Institute and SNOLAB, the Stonecroft Foundation, George Taylor Richardson Memorial Fund, and the City of Kingston Arts Fund through the Kingston Arts Council. Four artists of national and international stature were invited to make new work while engaging with physicists, chemists, and engineers contributing to the search for dark matter at SNOLAB’s facility in Sudbury, two kilometres below the surface of the Earth.
