Large-Scale Outdoor Exhibition Explores Toronto’s Harbour

Uncharted Waters: Toronto’s Enigmatic Harbour is opening on Thursday, June 21, 2012.

Harbourfront Centre is proud to announce the opening of Uncharted Waters: Toronto’s Enigmatic Harbour presented with the assistance of the Toronto Port Authority. This outdoor exhibition, held in Canada’s biggest outdoor exhibition space, features work by six of the nation’s premier artists exploring the various facets of Canada’s largest inland port.

With access to areas normally off-limits along Toronto’s waterfront, Dianne Davis, Johan Hallberg-Campbell, Jesse Louttit, Eamon Mac Mahon, Joanne Ratajczak and Clare Samuel captured unique glimpses into the people, places, landscapes and industries along the harbour. Their photographs offer new perspectives on the complexity and variety of activities and environments occurring at our water’s edge, and uncover the true value of this environmental and cultural resource.

Uncharted Waters: Toronto’s Enigmatic Harbour opens to the public on Thursday, June 21, 2012 and will run through June, 2013. More information is available at
