Chengzhongcun 城中村

Hours
Wed–Sun 1pm–6pm

Toronto-based photographer Bruno Lessard’s Chengzhongcun 城中村 offers a glimpse into China’s urban villages, also known as “villages in the city,” after dark, and a reconciliation of quotidian moments against a backdrop of accelerated urban transformations. Taking the notion of documenting the public sphere as a point of departure, Lessard’s images inquire into Chinese urban environments as sites of inhabitation and concurrent cultural and political values.
