NO FLAT CITY opens at Harbourfront Centre

Last night we proudly launched NO FLAT CITY, the second installment of our two year partnership with the TRCA and Menkes Developments. The large-scale outdoor exhibition reveals the true evolution of the City of Toronto by focusing on its many undocumented and unexpected characteristics.

“We’re engaging visual artists to explore the greater Toronto region and focus on the distinctive land formations and landscapes they encounter. People and their stories will be a prime focus throughout each of the theme areas which include Historic Landforms, Reshaping the Land, Living in the Landscape, and People and the Land.”

– Patrick Macaulay, exhibition curator


Open remarks – clockwise L-R: Brian Denney, CEO of the TRCA; Peter Menkes, President of the Commercial/Industrial Division of Menkes; Patrick Macaulay, Director of Visual Arts, Harbourfront Centre; William Boyle, CEO, Harbourfornt Centre.

The exhibition features artists Sarah Burtscher, Chloë Ellingson, Brett Gundlock, Brendan George Ko, Darren Rigo, and Victoria Vitasek. Each represents the broadest range of photographic practice, and is recognized for their photo documentary, studio and series work activities. Each artist brings their own unique artistic approach to this exciting pairing of visual arts with a complex provincial asset.



The exhibition opens to the public tonight,  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.
