ABOUT the RT COLLECTIVE
The RT Collective is a curatorial team made up of Marcin Wisniewski, Christophe Dupuis, and a variable collection of collaborators operating mostly in Toronto (but sometimes in other places) since 2013. Through screenings, exhibitions, panel discussions, and workshops, they foster community and strengthen dialogue within Canada’s media arts sector. Operating within a continuously redefined collaborative structure, they examine, question, and deconstruct traditional curatorial models, proposing alternative relationships between curators, artists, and publics, facilitating the development of new models in the creation, presentation, and distribution of art.
