Dying. is an exhibit where the world of art, culture, and end-of-life in contemporary times collide. It invites the audience to re-evaluate their relationship with life and death. Existentialism is explored through varied art forms with a focus on the realms of fragility, death, dying, loss, and grief. Our mission is to change the narrative around Dying. by using heart-level dialogue and participatory art to empower the public to think about death as part of the human experience. Dying. is in fact about living, living with the human experience of dying; What aren’t we talking about? What matters at end-of-life? Bringing together perspectives from families, caregivers, clinicians, and research to spark public conversation through community creation and interactive experiences. Let’s get comfortable with the uncomfortable. Dying. is an event series running in conjunction with DesignTO, with collaborators from Taboo Health and the Health Design Studio at OCADU.
Dying.exhibits will be part of the DesignTO Festival from January 19th to 28th, 2024
