LOKI GILI: Song of Sorrow, Song of Hope (Jan. 7-28) From Toronto, a community art project about the Roma organized by Red Tree Arts Collective and Roma Community Centre. Additional works by Sandor Monos, Mary Keczan-Ebos, Kathy Rohonczy, Maria Sarkany, Tibor Nyilasi and Lynn Hutchinson.
When the Roma arrived in Europe, they created a sensation. Nobody knew where they had come from; and because all dark-skinned peoples from the Middle East were loosely called "Egyptians", the Roma were labelled as such. When they arrived in the British Isles in the late 15th century, the name was later changed to "Gyptian" and finally, "Gypsy".
