Current and upcoming exhibitions at the Riverdale Hub Gallery
CURRENT EXHIBITIONS @ RIVERDALE hub
Parth Upadhye is a Toronto-based artist. His approach is one of introspection and the ethos of his work is “vibrant calm.” Fascinated by stories people have been telling each other for centuries, he reinvents these narratives. His intent is to extend both the creative and appreciative processes. His works do not mimic nature or existing human outputs. They are deliberately created to encourage the viewer to meditate on lines, shapes and colors.

UPCOMING EXHIBITIONS @ RIVERDALE hub
this house, made and mended by unbelonging hands
currently April 1 – May 2, 2021
First Floor Gallery
Curated by Riverdale Curatorial Projects
this house, made and mended by unbelonging hands is a group exhibition of contemporary craft and zine works by emerging queer artists. Throughout history, queer people, and especially queer people of colour, have had to make their own spaces, their own communities, and their own systems of documenting their histories. this house, made and mended by unbelonging hands showcases artists whose work takes on expansive approaches to craft practices and speaks to this legacy of queer-spacemaking, kinship, and continual resistance across time. Dayna Danger, Akash Inbakumar, Kaythi, Vincy Lim, Yahn Nemirovsky, and Cleopatria Peterson present works that engage the longstanding tradition of queer craft as something that connects us to past and future queer ancestors.
Book an appointment to visit the exhibition. Unfortunately, due to new COVID Lockdown restrictions, our exhibition space is closed to the general public. For any questions, you can contact email@example.com.
Riverdale Curatorial Projects is a curatorial collective led by emerging curators Dallas Fellini and Karina Iskandarsjah.

Gillian Toliver is a multidisciplinary artist currently based in Toronto. As an artist of mixed Scottish and Caribbean descent, her work often explores spaces existing in an in-between, a world caught in a moment of creation. In an honouring and opening of self, her work is a reaction to the absurdity, multiplicity and fluidity of being. Utilizing practices of labour, repetition and ritual, she navigates the condition of body and mind from systematic censorship through creating new forms in which to pour and bind self to. The creation of these new ‘host’ bodies is used in an act of reclaiming physical and mental environments.
