Toronto is not a flat city

Nine Rivers Cityopened June 21st of last year, in partnership with Toronto and Region Conservation (TRCA), and illustrated the journey of six artists who captured the visible and not-so-visible aspects of the nine rivers that flow through — and around — our city. The artists carefully explored four key aspects of rivers’ formation (history, nature, landscape and people), revealing the story of these streams to the public at Harbourfront Centre’s Exhibition Common.

Now, almost an entire year after opening, we prepare to strike the exhibition and unveil a second phase to the project entitled No Flat City: Toronto’s Incomparable Terrain. The six featured photographers have lent their eye, lens and talent, unveiling incredible topographical elements and natural interventions in the hilltops, pathways, and ravines of TRCA jurisdiction over the last eight months. In the next few weeks we’ll be introducing you to the six artists (Sarah Burtsscher, Chloë Ellingson, Brett Gundlock, Brendan George Ko, Darren Rigo and Victoria Vitasek), giving contextual background to their work and insight into their process.

The new exhibition will be open to the public on June 20. Generously supported by Menkes and taking place in our Exhibition Common (located adjacent to Ontario Square and Canada Square), the exhibition will be open and accessible all summer/winter through to June 2015.
