Forget about leaving on a jet plane, all you need is Torontos red rocket
transit system to experience exotic lands of afar.
On show at the Design
Exchange, Fringe Benefits: Cosmopolitan Dynamics of a
Multicultural City explores how multiculturalism is transforming
Torontos mundane strip mall-dotted landscapes into bustling night
markets and palatial mandirs.
From North Americas first Tamil shopping centre in East York to the BAPS
Hindu temple in the West end (built to last 1,000 years), curator Ian
Chodikoff uses photography, video and maps to illuminate the tiles in
this wonderful mosaic of ours.
Ill have my murukku to go, please.
Running until September 23, First Floor Gallery, The Design Exchange,
234 Bay Street, Toronto, 416-363-6121, www.designexchange.org
