Black Ark – Artist Talk

Join artist Oluseye Ogunlesi on Juneteenth for a tour of his breathtaking outdoor installation, Black Ark.

Nigerian Canadian artist Oluseye Ogunlesi explores Canada’s role in the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade through his installation Black Ark. Referencing the slave ships that were built in Canada, this cathedral-like structure invites you into the hull of a ship, creating passage and revealing the fractured and erased history of enslavement in Canada.

Location: Ashbridges Bay Park, 1561 Lake Shore Blvd E, Toronto
