Despite a desperate crowdfunding attempt to keep its doors open, the Toronto art space Margin of Eras Gallery (MOEG) has closed.

The CUE-run gallery in Parkdale dedicated to showcasing work from young artists, specifically from racialized, marginalized communities, has shuttered after just two years at 1684 Queen St. West.

“The reaction from the community has been heartbreaking,” says MOEG’s co-creative director, Jason Samilski.

“It shows the importance of this kind of space, and how necessary it is for proper funding to be resourced.”
