Programmed in partnership with the Toronto Society of Architects, Sacred Space also features new writing in response to this idea by internationally best-selling novelist Louise Welsh.
The exhibition runs from May 3rd to September 7th. Exhibition hours are Tuesday through Thursday and Sunday, noon to 6:00 pm, and Friday and Saturday, noon to 8:00 pm. The Centre is closed on Monday. Admission is free.
Harbourfront Centre has established the first public venue in Toronto devoted to presenting exhibitions which challenge, educate and question the prevailing thoughts, ideas and practices informing contemporary architecture. Exhibitions will present debates, dialogues and challenges between exhibiting firms – with each exhibition constructed specifically to investigate a proposed idea. Architects present their ideas and speculations through constructed model forms/objects, printed images, new media and mixed media.
