Public Volumes gestures towards broad interpretations of spatial justice, a concept that acknowledges the connection between space and justice as integral to understanding how we arrive at our relationships. Bringing together exhibitions, public programming and writing, the many projects within Public Volumes focus in or out from a particular location or series of locations, fostering deeper insight into why space matters. From thinking through ideas around memory and ways of living to community mobilization and immigration, Public Volumes espouses the multiple meanings folded into the spaces of everyday life and those of unexpected circumstance. This program looks to the tangled means by which we defend the spaces that offer support and the efforts we take to transform those that fail.

Taking place over three sites within Mississauga and featuring collaborations with Koffler.Digital and independent curator Anu Radha Verma, Public Volumes features existing and newly commissioned work from artists working across a range of media.
