Laundry Lines by MANGO PEELER
An interactive run and relay race that concludes with a silkscreen performance.
Photographs of local signs are made into screens and overprinted onto t-shirts by participants to deconstruct and transform the typography.
Once banned by the City of Toronto, celebrated laundry lines will hang with colourful t-shirts, creating vibrant festival flags. Bring your own old t-shirt and see you at the finish line.
