Trinity Square is pleased to welcome Emily Fitzpatrick as our new Exhibition Coordinator. This interim position was created to manage, oversee and execute our planned programming for the balance of 2017, following the departure of our Artistic Director, cheyanne turions, who begins new role at the Vancouver Art Gallery in June. In this role, Emily will be responsible for all aspects of the upcoming exhibition program, including liaising with artists, guest curators, co-presentation partners, technicians and Trinity Square staff, including exhibitions at Trinity Square, in the community and any of our touring shows, as well as all exhibitions currently in development.
Emily brings extensive experience working within Toronto’s artist-run centres and public institutions including Images Festival, the Art Museum at the University of Toronto, Gendai Gallery, and Art Metropole. As an independent curator and arts administrator who holds a master’s degree in Visual Studies from the John H. Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape and Design at the University of Toronto she brings the visions and skills necessary to realize our artistic vision while we undertake an organizational review and plan for our artistic direction in the coming years.
Emily Fitzpatrick’s curatorial practice involves temporary public art projects rooted in social practice. Recent curatorial projects include MMMMM…Gendai Kitchen, a food-art subscription service; On The Table, an artist multiple project speaking to issues related to gender-based violence and sexual harassment in public space; and Gallery Galleria, a group exhibition responding to a mall’s publics, economies, and aesthetics, both co-curated with the collective Aisle 4.
We hope you will join us in wishing her all the best in her new role.
