Pop-Up Exhibition | State of Disruption

July 19 - September 5
Mid Main Lofts


Boldly exploring themes related to identity, disruption, child-like obsessions, and controlled chaos,
State of Disruption  is a compelling exhibition that confronts the challenges and complexities of the nation’s current education system. Teachers from CAMH’s Teacher Advisory Group (TAG) and their students channel their creativity and insights into thought-provoking works that reflect their classroom experiences and perspectives.

Through child-like wonder and with boundless imagination, the works of both students and teachers emerge as powerful visual references to the evolving landscape of public school. From ceramics to sculpture to collage and varied forms of mixed-media, viewers are invited to confront uncomfortable truths and reimagine the possibilities for change.
