On Sunday, January 21st there will be an exhibition reception, a chance to explore the gallery and hear from the artists themselves as they chat with Christina Kingsbury. Reth Aur Reghistan is a multidisciplinary arts project started by Nimra and Manahil Bandukwala that explores folklore from Pakistan through sculpture, storytelling, and community-engaged arts.

Beginning April 9th, Silence will be locked in a Feedback Loop, a two-month installation and soundscape created in partnership with the University of Guelph’s 2021-2022 Critical Studies In Improvisation class. Feedback Loop begins on Market Day, April 9 at Silence, 46 Essex Street. Doors open at 11:00. Artists from the Critical Studies in Improvisation program present a live collaborative performance at 12:00. We’re living in a circular apocalypse—locked down by the pandemic, let down by political systems and worn down by an army of influencers forecasting the latest end of the world as we know it. Feedback Loop is our take on a society that has changed beyond all recognition—and not in a nice way. Join us as we spin music and art in contemplation of lives lived in continual, universal frustration. We have 200 questions about the future. We don’t have the answers. This is no student revolution. We’re going to improvise. And we want you in the Loop.

Second Friday of the month – 8pm
