Canada Ireland Foundation invited a diverse group of artists to take over its newly acquired Corleck Building at 3 Eireann Quay, and transform the interior spaces with original murals and installations inspired by miotas (the Gaelic word for myth) and the foundational mythologies of their own cultures.
The exhibition features local Toronto artists along with Doras (Marc O’Brien), an internationally renowned Irish-Canadian artist based in Montreal, making his Toronto debut.  Following strict covid-19 safety measures, the artists have worked independently in separate rooms and on separate days throughout May and June 2021.
The exhibition is generously supported by the Waterfront BIA, #ShowLoveTO, and the Robert G. Kearns Foundation.
