Starting from... The Suburbs

Exhibition, Hall cases, 16 February 2012 to 10 June 2012

We are more likely today to consider suburbs formless, vacant, or unsustainable compared to the dense social and economic activity of cities. Starting from… The Suburbs looks at the past fifty years of suburban culture through the lens of the CCA Collection’s photography holdings, produced by photographers’ longstanding attraction and aversion to this urban form.

The Starting From… series explores the Collection through contemporary research in publications, films, and other contemporary research in architecture.

Starting From… The Suburbs is the result of a conversation between Cerys Wilson and Marta Masferrer, 2011 Power Corporation of Canada Curatorial Interns.
