Critical Distance Centre for Curators (formerly TYPOLOGY Projects) is a not-for-profit initiative and space devoted to the support and advancement of curatorial practice and inquiry in Toronto, Canada, and beyond.

Part gallery and publisher, part curators’ association and advocacy, CDCC exists to: provide opportunities and resources to curators and artists for the production of exhibitions and projects within a critical framework; build curatorial community for practitioners at all levels of professional development; promote education, sustainability, and best practices in curating and exhibition-making; and more. 

With a focus on critically engaged, collaborative, and cross-disciplinary practices, underrepresented artists and art forms, and community outreach and education in art and exhibition-making, Critical Distance is an open platform for diverse curatorial perspectives, and a forum for the exchange of ideas on curating and exhibition-making as ways to engage and inform audiences from all walks of life.
