To the CSV community, As part of the wider response to curtailing an onset of the COVID-19 novel coronavirus, CSV and the entire TMAC facility will close as of Monday, March 16. We anticipate re-opening on Monday, April 6. All CSV workshops, gallery visits, in-house services, editing room access, and technical support are suspended during the shut-down period. For the moment, we are suspending further gear bookings, although we will honour those that have already been made, on a discretionary, by-appointment-only basis. We regret any inconvenience our suspension of activities may cause. Should you have questions or concerns, please email us at <csv@charlesstreetvideo.com>. Stay well, and we hope to see you soon.

Love My Dysfunctions Opening and Exhibition!


Thu 13 - Sat 29 February 2020
 LOVE MY DYSFUNCTIONS by Rebecca Sweets is an immersive installation which explores her mad, neurodivergent + disabled identity through the lens of executive dysfunction, a dominant symptom of ADHD. The exhibition is concerned with social constructs of dysfunction, within the context of “higher education” that normalizes neurotypicality by reinforcing systemic ableist, sanist, and capitalist modes of existence. 'LOVE MY DYSFUNCTIONS' by Rebecca Sweets is presented by the Margin of Eras Gallery, in collaboration with Charles Street Video. Opening Reception | February 13th, 2019 from 7-9pm Exhibition Dates | February 14th – February 29th Gallery Hours | Monday to Friday from 10-6pm, Saturdays from 12-5pm Location | Charles Street Video, located in Toronto Media Arts Centre (32 Lisgar Street, 2nd Floor). ABOUT REBECCA SWEETS Rebecca Sweets is a Toronto-based multidisciplinary artist, troublemaker, and doll collector. Through vulnerable, exploratory and immersive techniques, her mediums combine tangible, performative, and interactive storytelling. Her work involves themes of mixed race identity, digital intimacy, and radical empathy at the intersection of disability justice, mad pride and neurodiversity. - Poster design by Rabeea Syed. ------ Accessibility Information: Toronto Media Arts Centre is a fully accessible venue.

Some of the most important artwork is being created by artists who experience social, cultural, and economic marginalization, and systemic barriers can preclude many relevant artists from contributing to our cultural narrative. The MOEG is a space to engage with these artists and their work--an environment where communities that have been excluded within the arts can be recognized and represented. FOLLOW THE MOEG on...
