Welcome to Critical Distance Centre for Curators (CDCC), a not-for-profit initiative and space dedicated to the support and advancement of curatorial inquiry and practice in Toronto, Canada, and beyond.


Critical Distance is the new name and identity for TYPOLOGY, a not-for-profit project space that was established at Artscape Youngplace in 2013 to be an open platform for diverse curatorial and artistic practices and perspectives. Building on the past three years of providing opportunities for curators and artists to mount their exhibitions within a critical framework, TYPOLOGY is relaunching as a centre for curators in response to the need, voiced to us by local and national curators, for a truly vital curatorial community—one that provides information, advocacy, opportunities, and resources for practitioners at all stages in their professional development.

As Critical Distance, we will continue to to produce a wide-ranging annual program of exhibitions and projects supported by the production of original publications, editions, and related events. At the same time we will embark upon an open and inclusive process to share information, explore ideas, establish key priorities, and develop new programs in support of curatorial practice and inquiry at local, national, and international levels. Anyone interested in participating, building, joining, and supporting a truly dedicated space and centre for curating is invited to get involved.


A one-sheet PDF summarizing our mission, relaunch, programs, location, and director’s bio is forthcoming. Contact us at info (at) criticaldistance (dot) ca for more information.
