Discounted Histories

Myseum of Toronto

Presented by Myseum of Toronto in collaboration with the City of Toronto Archives, this exhibit presents objects and artifacts from Toronto’s retail and trade history. Installed as a non-linear survey, the selected works come together to create a new context that was never before possible due to the monocultural view of the historical canon. This exhibit acts as a natural starting place to learn about the overarching principles of Discounted Histories before exploring the narratives of partnering institutions, as well as the variety of programs happening throughout the month.
