Please join us for an exhibition tour of Further Along The Road, a solo exhibition by Toronto-based photographer Eliot Wright during the 20th Annual Doors Open. The artist will host the exhibition tour. Each tour will take place every hour at each half hour.
Further Along The Road presents a multi-year 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.
