Shot of Art: 45 years of Caribana at the ROM
Timed to correspond with the opening of Caribana â er, the Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival â a new exhibition at the ROM takes a look back at the history of the festival in Toronto. Composed of contemporary work by local artist Nation Cheong as well as archival images and video, it's fascinating to get a sense for how much (and how little) the festival has changed over the years. Alas, with only 26 photographs in total, it lacks the breadth of a full-blown survey, but the glimpse still offers the stunning visuals one's come to expect from Caribana photography.
Toronto's Carnival: Festival Photographs from 1967 to Today runs between July 16th and August 1st in the Hilary and Galen Weston Wing, Level 2. Check out more photos of the exhibition below.
