Contacting Toronto: Expanding Cities featuring Alejandro Cartagena, Julia Krolik & Owen Fernley
Mexican artist Alejandro Cartagena takes over Toronto’s Warden subway station in an official public installation, curated by Sharon Switzer for the CONTACT Photography Festival, that addresses issues of transportation, suburban development, and sustainability.
This innovative installation replaces all advertising with Cartagena’s work, converting Warden station, a primary destination for suburban commuters, into a distinctive exhibition space. The exhibition also threads throughout the subway system, via a series of videos by Kingston, art-duo, Julia Krolik and Owen Fernley.
