The Pop-up The Window Gallery is now open at 558 Church Street (Church & Wellesley) and showing What I Did On My Summer Vacation,  by Photo alumni Walter Segers.  This autobiographical series inspired by real-life travels and wistful make-believe continues Walter’s focus on belonging, gender and identity. The Window Gallery YYZ, managed by ONE Properties and curated by Sonja Sharf, is at the North West corner of Church and Wellesley. This corner will be demolished soon but instead of having it sit empty over the next year(s), a pop-up gallery is supporting local  artists.

The exhibition is accessible 24hrs and will continue until March 18th.
