Home: Toronto Urban Photography Festival at IX Gallery Opening Reception
Please join us in celebrating the inaugural year of the Toronto Urban Photography Festival with HOME at IX Gallery!
It is said that there is a limit to the number of places and people that we can find familiar, even in a city of millions. Anthropologist Robin Dunbar proposes that we evolved with the capacity to understand and function within a cohesive group of perhaps 150. We therefore live with strangers and strangeness in a way that would have seemed impossible to our ancestors. One of the marvels of the modern city is that ways are still found to personalize and enliven our spaces — that in coping with the tension between the village of our past and the Gotham City-like metropolis of our present, we manage to thrive. This group exhibit honours that process, and is an ode to the resilience of "home".
