A 16mm film loop projection produced for exhibition Culture slash Nation curated by Lorraine Johnson and Cheryl Sourkes
Toronto Photographers Workshop, 1995
At the time of this exhibition Toronto’s downtown West side was undergoing change from home to artist studios and artist-run galleries to condos and high-end retail developments that forced rents up and artists out. The image of white-washing reflected the process of gentrification. This 16mm film loop projection ran for a week on the wall of the Spadina Hotel, at the corner of King Street West and Spadina Avenue, a bar then popular among local artists.
