Beyond Imaginings - Outdoor Art at Harbourfront

From a media release:

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Eight Photographers Announced for Harbourfront Centre’s Major Commission for the Outdoor Exhibition Beyond Imaginings

TORONTO, ON (May 20, 2010) – Harbourfront Centre today announced the eight emerging Canadian photographers who have been commissioned to take part in the unique exhibition Beyond Imaginings: Eight
artists encounter Ontario's Greenbelt. From June 18, 2010 through June 2011, the photographs of Beyond Imaginings will occupy Canada’s largest outdoor photography exhibition gallery, located at Harbourfront Centre on its 10-acre central waterfront Toronto site, one of the most visited public sites in all of Canada. Beyond Imaginings is free and open to all ages.

The eight artists selected to participate in the exhibition are Becky Comber, Keesic Douglas, Martie Giefert, Mark Kasumovic, Rob MacInnis, Erin Riley, Meera Margaret Singh, and Garett Walker.

A total of 72 large scale photographs by the eight artists will provide glimpses of various facets of this environmentally protected region, one of the largest of its type in the world. Each photographer will explore one of three aspects through their work: Natural Beauty, Working the Land and People of the Greenbelt.

“The eight artists have been at work travelling throughout the Greenbelt, taking photographs which capture noteworthy aspects of this vast protected region,” said exhibition curator Patrick Macaulay, Harbourfront Centre’s Head of Visual Arts. “The process of selecting images and creating the final exhibition provides a fascinating behind the scenes look into the artists’ experiences, and is part of the exclusive online content we are sharing on Harbourfront Centre’s UPFRONT blog.”

Commissioned and curated by Harbourfront Centre, this unprecedented exhibition is generously supported by Friends of the Greenbelt Foundation. “This unique exhibition provides visitors to downtown Toronto a window — or 72 of them — into the beauty, wonder and complexity of Ontario’s Greenbelt,” said Susan Murray, Director of Communications for the Greenbelt Foundation. “And it provides an opportunity to those who can’t make it to experience the exhibit via online tools. There’s something here for everyone.”
