It's All (Still) Right Now
One year later... It's ALL (Still) Right Now The Bentway is taking an opportunity to look back at It’s All Right Now – their 2020, COVID-responsive public art project that captured and shared hopes, gratitudes, fears, melancholies, and joys, our “truths of right now (then)”. More than thirty Toronto-based artists and the general public were asked to respond to a simple inquiry: “What words are you living by?”. As a featured artist, Deon Best was asked to share and express what words is he living by now in 2021. #itsallstillrightnow Check it out... https://www.itsallrightnow.ca/still * The Matriarch by Deon Best *
