The Art of Transformation: Public Artwork Changes Yonge Street
The Art Shoppe Lofts + Condos development site at 2131 Yonge Street has recently
become a public art exhibit featuring the work of local and internationally renowned
artist Chikonzero Chazunguza.
In partnership with the PATCH Project, this mixed-media exhibit spans across
approximately 3,300 square feet of construction hoarding at the construction site.
Mr. Chazunguza’s work explores the links between systemized consumerism and the act
of queuing in urban settings. The artist seeks to define how happiness, freedom,
democracy and identity are molded through consumerism in urban environments.
Six of Chazunguza’s works have been selected to complement the construction site, and
to embody ‘the art of change’ – a core value of this Freed Developments and Capital
“In the City” is a part of the PATCH Project,
which is a subset of a larger initiative by the
STEPS Initiative, to transform construction spaces across Toronto. The exhibit, starting
August 2016, will be accessible to the public during construction.
