Sugar Coat by Christina Leslie

Thursday, 16 March 2023 - Christina Leslie’s series, Sugar Coat, seeks to address the disconnection between sugar and its history. These photographs present this history of sugar and slavery, exploring the materiality of sugar in its bleached granular form and speaking metaphorically about the whitewashing of this history. Using her own personal archives of Jamaica and intermixing them with new images constructed from using models, costumes, props and appropriating pro-slavery literature, she has produced photographs made from sugar. - 401 Richmond St W, Toronto, ON M5V 3A8, Canada - Event Details
