This year’s feature exhibit, Discounted Histories presents objects and artifacts from Toronto’s retail past and present. Installed as a non-linear survey, the historical and contemporary threads intertwine to reimagine new narratives. In this way, the traces of Toronto’s relationship with retail: a wampum bead; a sewing machine; a beaver pelt; or a mail order catalogue continue the dialogue that challenges the inequality of retail relationships that persists to the present day.The Discounted Histories feature exhibit is an ideal starting place that invites you to explore the stories told by our partner institutions and programs.
