Workplace Affairs Opening

We’ve put together a show for this year’s Toronto Design Offsite Festival titled Workplace Affairs and are looking forward to the opening this coming Saturday.

Workplace Affairs is an exploration of the relationship of space to the creative process. The exhibition runs Saturday January 19 to Sunday January 27, 2013 at East of Keele.

Curated and photographed by LeuWebb Projects, the exhibition gives visitors a peek into the creative spaces of a selected group of local artists; examining artefacts of production and documenting the workspaces that enabled their creation.

Featuring the work and workplaces of Melissa Fisher, Patrick Svilans, Joy Charbonneau, Lizz Aston, Patrick Yeung, Clayton McMaster and Jyhling Lee.
