What do ten neighbourhoods tell us about who we are?

Myseum of Toronto has kicked off Ten of Toronto, an exhibition that will showcase 10 neighbourhoods in Toronto. Running until April 30, residents and visitors can explore what has shaped the city’s neighbourhoods, whether that’s geography, economy, immigration, finance, urban development, culture, inequality, and social values.

“We are thrilled to open our doors for our first exhibition of the year 2023! Toronto is widely known for our unique neighbourhood communities — in fact, there are 158 designated in this city,” says Heidi Reitmaier, Myseum of Toronto executive director, in a Feb. 9 news release.

“By exploring significant issues and themes within the city — historically and in this contemporary moment — we hope our visitors will ask ‘what makes our neighbourhoods unique? And what is important as we live, work and play together and shape our city. We welcome visitors to learn more about Toronto and connect with each other through the stories of our city.”

Themes and neighbourhoods included in the exhibition are:

• Topography and landscape (Danforth);

Victorian Toronto (Allan Gardens);

Arrival City (Little Manila);

Streetcar suburbs (Earlscourt),

Tower neighbourhoods (Thorncliffe);

Tkaronto (Baby Point);

Queer Toronto (Queen West);

Wealth (Casa Loma);

Factories (Golden Mile);

and Workers (East York).


Ten of Toronto was co-curated by Tatum Taylor Chaubal and John Lorinc with exhibition design by elsonstudio and Erik Skouris and Matthew Hickey of Two Row Architect.

Ten of Toronto features historical references, photography, film, and objects of each neighbourhood. Visitors can interact with the exhibition through music, a writing wall and participatory games, as well as learn about the neighbourhood they live in.
