Currently occupying the former 24/7 Drugstore on Queen & Gladstone Ave, is Margin of Eras presented by Cue Art Projects. Showcasing emerging artists under 29, the exhibition aims to highlight voices which aren’t always understood within the borders of mainstream commercial art. The character of the venue highlights the unconventionality of the work presented, unifying their distinct artistic voices.
Each artist extracts elements from traditional artistic styles, paired with their experience as a young artist who lives and works on the margins in Toronto.
Margin of Eras marks CUE’s 3rd annual group show, where artwork funded over the past year will be exhibited. Since 2008, CUE has provided over $140,000 in grants to support the creation of 130 art projects by new generation artists who work on the margins, and face barriers when connecting with mainstream funding opportunities. Artists can find more information on applying for funding here.
Margin of Eras is open to the public Wednesday to Sunday from 12pm to 7pm, until July 27th. Head on down to the repurposed convenience store at 1181 Queen St. West, and take a look while you still have the chance!
