CONTACT is the largest photography event in the world, and a premiere cultural experience in Canada, with over 1500 artists in 200 exhibitions and happenings throughout the month in the Greater Toronto Area. Founded in 1997, CONTACT is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to celebrating and fostering the art and profession of photography.
As part of the 20th anniversary celebrations, CONTACT expanded their program to include 20 Public Installations at sites across the city, one of which was curated by Bethea Penny of BAETLI. The installation, #DrizzyDoesUTSG, features Instagram artist @UofTDrizzy and explores the pervasiveness and ephemerality of images in social media through a series of posters across the University of Toronto’s St. George Campus.
