City Renewal ProjectThursday, November 6, 2008
Wooster Collective will be heading to Toronto on Friday November 7th, for the City Renewal Project. The City Renewal Project is a large-scale, site-specific collaborative installation by Fauxreel and Specter. The project focuses on the state of decay within the city, specifically examining abandoned storefronts and infrastructure that’s on the verge of being erased from the cityscape. Housed inside a 4400 square foot warehouse, the project renews these dilapidated buildings as artistic monuments and documents their history amidst the gentrified frenzy of urban change. The opening of the show is Friday night November 7th from 7 – 11 pm at 39 Lisgar Street.
Wooster Collective will also be giving a lecture on the world of outdoor art. The lecture will be held at 381 Queen Street West, Suite 200. Seating is first come first serve.
