Who Takes Care of Us — a solo exhibition by Nigel Edwards, opening May 25th

When artists burn out, where do we go?
How do we stop to take care when we gotta keep going to eat?
Who takes care of us?

The MOEG presents 'Who Takes Care of Us? (The Importance Of Reciprocity and Community Care)' by Nigel Edwards, an evolving week-long visual arts exhibition & dance performance event running from May 25th to 31st.

Edwards states, “‘Who Takes Care of Us’ is a culmination of the realization that I’ve always used my artist mediums to bring people together—to celebrate the power of sharing the present time. This show is about who I am, while showing who we are.”

Exhibition Dates | May 25th – May 31st
Gallery Hours | Wednesday to Friday from 12-7pm, Saturdays from 12-5pm

ABOUT NIGEL EDWARDS

I am a movement storyteller. The stories I tell come from visceral responses that animate an embodied knowledge that allows me to maneuver the world around me.  As a self-taught movement artist, I discovered my identity and style through my roots in the Toronto’s street dance community. My artistic practice is inspired by the re-imagining of space, soundscapes and evocation of identity and freedom through movement. As a choreographer, sound designer and community arts practitioner, I am able to create spaces for movement artists to understand what it means to be present, have an honest exchange and experience reciprocity in its rawest form as I lead them through collective improvisation.
