YTB is a nomadic, D.I.Y. gallery for emergent and experimental art practices. YTB provides discursive space for critical conversations and risk-taking through new configurations of audience, artists, and community.
In 2009 the New Museum in New York held its first triennial of emerging artists called “Younger Than Jesus,”showcasing work by artists under 33. The show was controversial because it focused on a generation that has been defined by their habits of consumption rather than production. Five years later, Younger Than Beyoncé presents a nomadic, D.I.Y. response to this landmark exhibition, within the context of the Toronto arts community and surrounding neighbourhoods. Our first year as a gallery we partnered with the Daniels Corporation and took over a 3,600 square foot space in Regent Park where we programmed 13 exhibitions working with over 100 artists. Now in our second year YTB Gallery have partnered with the Feminist Art Gallery in Parkdale where we our programing several exhibitions, workshops, and talks.
