Harbourfront Centre's five winter exhibitions address aspects of work and include a co-production with Istituto Italiano di Cultura, Toronto and Triennale di Milano. Curated by Milan-based architect, designer and artist Alessandro Guerriero, Workwear re-imagines common uniforms through the work of 40 artists, designers and architects, including Issey Miyake, Vivienne Westwood and Coop Himmelb(l)au. Tong Yan Gaai is a record of Morris Lum’s journey across Canada with a large-format camera on a search for cultural memory and Chinese identity. The Essentials is a group exhibition devoted to the jewellery we wear daily. In the exhibition, Everyday Lighting, led by designer Katharine Tessier, Craft & Design Studio Artists-in-Residence explore illumination for practical use. The group exhibition Workaday sheds light on the process of creation, by presenting works in various media alongside the tools used to make them.
