One year ago, Bunker 2 opened with a group show on the theme of “intimacy”. That exhibition, titled “casual encounters,” brought together disparate artworks and practices in order to generate initial interest in the gallery.  This strategy is not uncommon as the group show dynamic has many beneficial but often problematic tendencies. After one year of operation, Bunker 2 invited artists to critique the group exhibition format, to make more apparent the invisible relationships and dynamics between exhibiting artists, practices, contexts, and groupings. “Don’t Worry, it’s just another White Exhibition” brings together J.D Banke, Sophia Oppel, Roula Partheniou, Jimmy Limit, and Patrick Cruz to criticize how group exhibitions function: their motives, payoffs, and risks. “Don’t Worry” has also invited critics to discuss the issue of Canadian art criticism (or lack-thereof) in relation to the exhibition.


"Don't Worry" invited the larger art criticism community in Toronto, to write our curatorial statement alongside the curator of the exhibition: it can be found here.


"Don't Worry" also invites viewers to "curate their own exhibition."
