Collective City

Collective City is a documentary series from Caroline Birks, Richard Mongiat and David Sylvestre that traces the history of artist generated galleries and collectives that operated as alternative exhibition venues in Toronto from the late 1980’s to present day.

It shows, over the course of several short videos, how a movement that started as a group of renegade artist collectives exhibiting their work in temporary spaces eventually evolved into the sustainable artist collective galleries we are familiar with today.
