Condos Go Boom

2006_9_22condo.jpgTorontoist still has mixed feelings about condos. On one hand, they’re harbingers of gentrification, and are often built with little or no regard for the surrounding neighbourhoods. On the other hand, it beats paving over another patch of forest or farmland for a subdivision.
So just what is the place of the condo in Toronto? That’s what Condo Boom!, a group show currently running at the Theatre Centre, looks at. The show features work by artists such as Luis Jacob and Amos Latteier (the Pigeon Condo, in case you missed it), Xing Danwen and Chris Hardwicke. Concurrent to the show are a series of talks, guided tours and other special events.
The show runs at the Theatre Centre (1087 Queen St. W.) until Oct. 1st. The gallery is open Noon-6pm Wednesday to Sunday.
