As CONTACT Toronto Photography Festival recognizes the influence of Marshall McLuhan on the 30th anniversary of his death, this biographical exhibition hosted at the University of Toronto’s Art Centre’s art lounge supports the adjoining The Brothel Without Walls exhibition by examining Marshall McLuhan’s life and thought in relation to photography. Utilizing archival material, this exhibit looks at McLuhan’s reflections on the photographic medium, while examining representations of this influential scholar in art and media.
