After a long time together full of shared curatorial vision and dreams, Laid Bare: Curations and other Concerns is closing up shop. We want to thank everyone for supporting us and sharing in this wonderful Toronto community of up and coming artists and visionaries.
Though we are moving on from a shared collective, we would love for you to keep watching for what’s to come from each of us separately.
Kelsey is pursuing her photography while exploring her love of print through zine projects such as Deze Daze, a shared zine with Marishka Anne and Drew Lint. She has also co-founded The Commonwealth, a community event that hosts artist vendors to sell their works. Kelsey also plans to continue to further her curatorial goals and arts administration skills through working at Cooper Cole Gallery. Though Laid Bare has been put to rest, she continues to feel enriched by the arts community, and lucky to be a part of something so vibrantly vast.

Andrea is studying for her MA in Contemporary Art History at OCADU, while continuing her curatorial practice. After a dreamy summer in Dawson City, Yukon, she co-organized and performed in an all female wrestling league. Hoping to continue this project in Toronto, she has co-founded the League of Lady Wrestlers, a collaborative effort aimed at subverting gender stereotypes and queering the concept of competitive sports while entertaining the masses.
