Its primary purpose since late 2005 has been to explore the possibilities of exhibition-making as a truly alternative, critical practice. From 2001 to 2010, Triple Candie operated a series of galleries in Harlem. Since 2011, it has been guest-curating exhibitions for organizations in the United States and Europe.
Admission is free and open to the public.

Batik dyeing is a resist process where-in wax is applied to fabric to prevent dye from penetrating the cloth below. When the wax is lifted after the fabric is dyed, a pattern/design emerges in the negative space.
While all materials will be provided, participants may bring fabrics from home to use during the workshop. General Admission is $25; $20 for CAMH Members. All ages are welcome to attend. For more information or if you have questions/concerns, email Daniel Atkinson, Manager of Education and Public Programs at email@example.com.
