An alternative art space with no agenda but its own experimental one -- artist-run, no frills -- just double the happiness! Exploring emerging art ideas, dichotomies and boundaries since 2017.
At DHP we seek to support the projects of emerging artists, shining a light on alternative or underrepresented works, cultural makers and communities. In part, this is borne out of the belief that the Toronto art landscape is in need of a few more casual & inclusive, yet critical spaces for discourse. With soaring real estate pricing out many galleries, it is hope that DHP can provides an opportunity for experimental interventions by artists, collaborators, curators and the public.
Located in the Lower Junction, the heart of the newly minted gallery district of Toronto. Our project space shares common areas with our sister project, the print studio JEREMY DOES ART PRINTS.
We currently have an annual call for submissions. We are open to receiving proposals and solicitations throughout the year for future exhibitions, collaborations, programming, outreach and partnerships.
We offer a flexible internship program to give solid insight into DHP's collaborations, tangible experience + exposure into the alternative art space landscape within the Canadian art context. At this time our internships are unpaid but can be credited towards an university program course. Please forward your letter of intent, CV/resume and appropriate portfolio in a PDF package.
喜. 雙喜. 囍.
In the Chinese language, Double Happiness (囍) is an unusual character in that it is formed by doubling and joining up the same character for “happiness” (喜) instead of using the word “double” (雙). This character (囍) — and the notion of "Double Happiness" — usually describes a happiness that comes from the union of two things. For us, it is also this union and grouping of two or more things that materializes their duality and dichotomy. We use this as a mantra in the way we program and exhibit works.
