PANAMANIA Arts & Culture Program features North-Sur Norte-South photo exhibition

 

Tuesday, July 14, 2015 - 4:00am

Emerging photographers 9,000 kilometres apart have collaborated on a cyber-photographic pen-pal project that explores the theme of local cultures and blurring geographic borders. North-Sur Norte-South connects OCAD University students with young photographers in Buenos Aires.

The project is part of PANAMANIA, presented by CIBC, is a 35-day arts and culture festival to enrich the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games experience.

Photographers were chosen for this online photographic exchange project through an open call and by invitation. OCAD U partnered with Toronto’s Gallery 44 and Ph15, a non-profit organization in Argentina that uses photography to develop expressive, communicative and technical skills in children and youth who live in vulnerable situations.

North-Sur Norte-South will be exhibited at Gallery 44 from July 17 to August 1; and the Museum of Contemporary Art in Buenos Aires from August 29 to September 6, with public displays on billboards and storefronts in both cities.

The images created through this collaboration are exhibited on an interactive website accessible to the Americas and the world.

North-Sur Norte-South was commissioned by the Arts & Culture Program of the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am and Parapan Am Games and is also a proud IGNITE community partner.
