How do you build closeness with your city and those you share it with?
“36 Questions that Lead to Loving Toronto” invites Torontonians to explore the commitment we have to the city and to each other.
We believe that many people love our city and yet at times, are also challenged by it. We present 36 questions that become more personal as you move throughout the space. We invite you to answer all questions or only the ones that speak to you, sharing small details and big thoughts. Get deep, have fun, be brutally honest about what you love or hate (and everything in between). Learn more about your loved ones, friends and neighbours through their shared responses. Ignite the spark to fall in love with Toronto for the first time, or all over again.
ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
The concept of 36 Questions originates from “The Experimental Generation of Interpersonal Closeness: A Procedure and Some Preliminary Findings,” a paper published in 1997 by psychologist Arthur Aron, and popularized by the New York Times as “The 36 Questions That Lead to Love.”
This exhibition is being presented in person at Myseum’s new space at 401 Richmond. Detailed directions, opening hours, policies, and accessibility information can be found in the blue sidebar to the right of the page
This project was conceived by Nadine Villasin Feldman and conceptualised by a team composed of Kathleen Lew, Nathan Heuvingh, Zambrine Saeed, Judy Koke and narrative environment designer Christine Elson.
Myseum is made possible with the generous support of Diane Blake and Stephen Smith.
