Internationally renowned Toronto-based artist and curator Luis Jacob gives a tour of Form Follows Fiction: Art and Artists in Toronto. The exhibition concentrates on a period of more than fifty years to consider the ways in which artists visualize Toronto. Presenting a thematic clustering of works by eighty-six artists, the exhibition is premised on the tendency of artists in this city to favour performative and allegorical procedures to articulate their sense of place.
