Manifesto turned TORONTO INSIDE OUT.
24 photographers. 400+ portraits. 40+ Wheatpasters. All City.
Manifesto is in its last week *tear* and with their art show “All.Art.Everything” they teamed up with 24 photographers to shoot community members and put their images up in their communities, making the city itself the gallery. I think the concept is dope and though I havent had a chance to see any of the photo’s around the city yet, I hope I will soon.
Check out some of the photos below and some more information on Inside Out.
“Public art is a vital form of communication and a critical part of the city’s vibrancy. With pending cuts to public funding for the arts in Toronto we needed to send a loud message to the decision makers that art makes people feel good and brings global attention to our city,” says Che Kothari, Manifesto Executive Director. “This is the largest group action of the Inside Out Project in the world to date. Bringing together students, emerging and professional photographers as well as eager volunteers and photo subjects, we galvanized over 500 community members to be a part of a universal recognition and appreciation of public art and ourselves as people worthy of claiming public space.”
See the images in different parts of the city including: Regent Park, Eglinton West, Kensington Market, Queen West, Shaw Street, Parkdale, Liberty Village, Eastern Avenue, Jane and Finch, Rexdale and more.
