CENSORED LIVES: Suppression, resistance and free speech

Censored Lives exhibit at The ArQuivesExhibit dates: 

Wednesday, June 30, 2010 to Wednesday, September 1, 2010

Description: 

This exhibition opens Wednesday, June 30 and runs until September 1st on the 3rd floor, community space of 34 Isabella Street.

This will be the first archival exhibition to be installed in The ArQuives’s new home, and it focuses on the moments of tension between what has been defined as obscene and the right to offend or the right to free speech.  Inspired by recent controversy, this show is meant to provide the context for the larger debate about censorship and free speech in the queer community.

The show features a film installation by filmmaker William Craddock.

A few pictures from the show, the contents are materials that have been censored or relating to the efforts of the LGBTQ communities to reverse censorship

CONSTRUCTION NOTICE:

As we continue our efforts to make The ArQuives more accessible, we are renovating the front of the house to add a ramp to the front entrance. Please note that there will not be any construction work done during public service hours. Should there be any disruptions affecting our access to the front door and/or work in the house during this process, we will post a notice as soon as possible. Thank you for your understanding and patience as we try to make The ArQuives more accessible to all. If you have any questions/concerns, please contact the Executive Director, Raegan Swanson, at executivedirector@arquives.ca


The ArQuives is located on the lands of the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, Haudenosaunee, the Anishnaabe and the Huron-Wendat. Today, Toronto is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to work on this land.

The ArQuives strives to gather the stories of the unheard and silenced voices of the 2SLGBTQ+ first peoples of this land. We acknowledge that some stories have already been lost, and we aim to ensure that those that remain and those that are to come are preserved for the future.
