The Doris McCarthy Gallery stands in solidarity with Black communities in Toronto and beyond.
As a contemporary art gallery and programming space, we are committed to activating the power of art to transform and illuminate the human experience.
We commit to continuing to amplify Black voices through our activities and persist with educating ourselves in resisting white supremacy and creating a more just society.
We are grateful for, and whole-heartedly celebrate the contributions of, and ongoing relationships with Black artists, students, and colleagues.
