Further Along The Road

May 1–July 31, 2019

Urbanspace Gallery, Toronto

 

Further Along The Road presents new works from my ongoing investigation into one of Toronto’s most actively transitioning streets.

 

A seemingly unremarkable thoroughfare, Dupont Street is situated alongside the Canadian Pacific Railway line that long ago marked Toronto’s city limits. Leaving behind its industrial past in the face of rapid redevelopment, Dupont Street epitomizes the fact that our modern, urban landscape is always in flux. The exhibition expresses the complexity of Dupont Street through intersecting narratives while simultaneously accentuating how photographs can guide and construct an understanding of place.

 

Presented as a part of the 2019 Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival Featured Exhibitions program, with support from the Ontario Arts Council.

 

Opening reception: Friday, May 3, 7–9 PM

Artist talk: Thursday, June 6, 7:30–9 PM
