About this Event

Photo Exhibition

Presented by the Goethe-Institut

with CONTACT Photography Festival & Art Metropole

Core exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival 2024

Interest in flâneurism within the practice of street photography is resurging but the concept remains problematic for its white male-centred gaze on urbanity. In this new exhibition-in-the-making, renowned artist and Guggenheim Fellow Zun Lee revisits his own street photography practice to depart from the usual focus on wandering. Lee proposes lingering and loitering as reclamation strategies to subvert the way modern technocultural urban spaces regulate wayward bodies. Rather than moving/observing, street photography can be reframed as an active way of destabilizing the urban environement and its sociality, producing alternate ways of understanding and reshaping our world, for bodies behind and in front of the camera.
Visit the exhibition at the Goethe-Institut Toronto from May 2 to May 29 on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 11 am to 5 pm.
