Toronto artist Erica Brisson sends her civic love
It’s the collective exploration of public space that informs Brisson’s first solo exhibition in a public gallery, Local Colour Info Centre, which opened last week in Toronto as part of the Koffler Centre of the Arts’ off-site gallery. Curated by Mona Filip, the exhibit is inspired by local tourist information centres — something you might see just off the 401 or in the heart of Toronto’s Yonge-Dundas Square — which acts as both a social space and a gallery. Visitors are greeted with minimalist postcards of the city along with maps and blueprints, all meant to heighten interest in the physical environment around us.
