Remembering Right, Remembering White

Remembering Right, Remembering White

Public Art, Colonial Memory, and Gentrification in Toronto’s Parkdale Neighborhood

(p.64) 3 Remembering Right, Remembering White
Excavating Memory

Griffin Epstein

University Press of Florida

This chapter interrogates the racial, spatial, and colonial implications of two pieces of public art in a gentrifying Toronto neighborhood, looking for the ways that emotional memory, colonial nostalgia, and fear shape both the built and discursive public domain. Using anti-colonial and anti-racist theories, this chapter also seeks to uncover the author's personal implications in re-ordering space as a white settler, social service worker, and former arts facilitator in the neighborhood.

Keywords:   Public Art, Colonial Nostalgia, Space, Gentrification, Race
