In the Shadow of Paradise, curated by Tiffany Schofield, is an exhibition bringing together work by three contemporary artists with roots in Scarborough – Annie Onyi Cheung, Anique J Jordan, and Deirdre Logue.
The opening reception featured a participatory performance by Annie Onyi Cheung, presented as part of her “cable knots” series. Visitors were invited to bring their old electronics cables and engage in a collective knot tying process with the artist.
In the Shadow of Paradise is presented as part of Myseum Intersections (#MyseumX), an annual festival of exhibits exploring different perspectives on the city’s natural, cultural, and historical diversity. The festival took place citywide from March 6 to 31, 2017.
