Established in January 2011, CAPACITY was created to provide an opportunity to promote Canadian women designers. Women remain vastly outnumbered by men in most sectors of design, and the curators feel it is important to provide a venue for the work and names of under-represented women professionals to be seen. At the same time, we have worked to create a resource for both women working in design, and a public curious to discover them.

CAPACITY is an (not-so) annual exhibition featuring a range of work from both emerging and established designers, and the exhibit has garnered much critical praise and press coverage, and attracted visitors from both within and outside of the design community, from Canada and abroad.

Now in its fifth installment, CAPACITY was founded and curated by Katherine Morley and Erin McCutcheon. Our inaugural exhibit was invited to be re-mounted at Toronto’s prestigious Design Exchange in August 2011. CAPACITY continues to attract 2500+ visitors annually, and is one of the founding exhibitions of the annual Toronto Design Offsite Festival.

This exhibition continues for another month after Toronto Design Offsite Festival concludes. Hours from Mon, Jan 22 through Mon, Feb 26 are 12-5pm.
