Not a Freak Show: Growing up gay in rural Ontario
at the Art Gallery of Peterborough
Spencer J. Harrison, Not a Freak Show: Growing up gay in rural Ontario bears witness to the artist’s experience using the vernacular of the circus freak show to discuss both exclusion and inclusion. The work takes the form of a large circus tent that can be walked around and gathered within, acting as a catalyst for discourse and an assertion of presence. It is the first painted PhD in Canada and was completed in the fall of 2014 for Adult Education and Community Development at OISE, U of T. Spencer J. Harrison was born in the south end of Peterborough in 1962.
