Criss-crossing the globe from Chicago to Tokyo, via Prague and Mumbai, with a stop-over in Toronto, Cities in Flux is a wide-ranging exploration of the city told through a selection of 100 photographs from the AGO Collection. Highlighting various economic, political and cultural realities underpinning the urban experience, the exhibition showcases photographs, post cards and albums – many on view for first time - made since 1850. Berenice Abbott, Bhupendra Karia, Paul Kodjo, Diane Liverpool, Danny Lyon and Gillian Wearing are among the more than 45 artists included in the exhibition. Curated by Marina Dumont-Gauthier, AGO Curatorial Fellow, Photography, Cities in Flux invites us to consider cities and the role of images in their growth and evolution.
The AGO is grateful for the generous support of a Photography Fellowship provided by the Schulich Foundation.
