ART | Flavio Trevisan: Museum of the Represented City
Curator Mona Filip presents a series of maps by local artist Flavio Trevisan that explore the paths, cityscapes and history of Toronto's urban jungle in Museum of the Represented City. Creating texturized, detailed maps that contain various objects in familiar spaces, Trevisan reflects on the current milieu of the city through his sculptural pieces. The opening reception happens tonight off-site of Koffler Gallery at 80 Spadina. The party is open to the public.
