Published Apr 02, 2013Arts & Crafts' 10th anniversary celebrations have already given us a compilation and the upcoming Field Trip Music & Arts Festival, and now the prominent Canadian indie label is once again reminding us of its legacy in the form of a photography exhibit in Toronto.
The exhibit, which is produced by Analogue Gallery, runs from May 23 to June 15 at 1093 Queen St. W (unit 2). It will additionally be displayed at Arts & Crafts' music festival and at the Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival.
It showcases black and white portraits taken by photographer Norman Wong. Among the artists included in the exhibit are Feist, Broken Social Scene's Kevin Drew, Dan Mangan and other acts from the A&C roster. There are also a number of candid shots taken by Wong during tours, live shows and photo shoots.
"Norm really is the best. He's so giving with his talent. It's an honour to be showcasing our artists through his lens," label head Jeffrey Remedios said in a statement. "We're excited to share some of the intimate, candid moments that he's captured over the past decade."
A limited number of photo prints will be available at the show and online, with a portion of proceeds going to Testicular Cancer Canada and MusiCounts.
Fans who attend the photo exhibit will also be able to buy festival tickets, A&C merchandise, and albums from the label's catalogue.
