Thomas Demand, Dionisio Gonzalez, Ilkka Halso, Simen Johan, Kim Joon, Scott McFarland, Miao Xiaochun, Erwin Olaf, Karen Ostrom, Sam Taylor-Wood


The focal point of CONTACT 2007 is Photographic Culture, an exhibition produced in partnership with the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art that showcases 10 artists from nine countries. The exhibition demonstrates how the constructed image has irrevocably transformed photography’s relationship to reality. Constructed modes of working are essential for these artists as they articulate concerns relating to contemporary global experiences.

Scotiabank Group is the presenting sponsor.
