Chef Roger Mooking's processional culinary installation features ingredients, recipes, themes and foodways central to the African diaspora as part of a multi artist takeover of the museum.

Dis/Mantle is hosted by Artist In Residence, Gordon Shadrach.


This installation is a response to the drastic rise in banned books in the United States. Spread across these desks you'll encounter books challenged for featuring stories about race, gender, inequalities and inclusion. They have been banned from schools, libraries and other public institutions.

Inspired by the sit-ins of the 1960s Civil Rights Movement, Toronto artist and chef Roger Mooking created Read(In) as a response in solidarity with the equity-deserving characters, communities, and inclusive themes these books bring to the forefront. You'll also find books that inspire us to engage and celebrate diverse histories and perspectives.

You are welcome to sit, read, read aloud, and engage with the books. What books resonate most with you? What questions do they inspire?
