Light Grows The Tree is a group exhibition that documents a community of Black artists, writers, curators and collectors in Toronto. Taken by four photographers over two months, these portraits bring visibility to the Black arts community. Curator Liz Ikiriko states, “Just as a tree needs light to grow, this community requires attention to focus and develop. In this first chapter, Light Grows The Tree begins the process of acknowledging those who have been the life force of Black arts in Toronto.”

Curated by Liz Ikiriko

Photographs by Yannick Anton, Liz Ikiriko, Ebti Nabag and Dainesha Nugent-Palache.
