Rotunda Gallery Kitchener City Hall September 2013 exhibit:
Tomorrow Disappears: Vanishing Industry in Ontario by Jared Davison
Meet the artist: Thursday, September 5, 5-7 p.m.
Jared Davison’s exhibit, Tomorrow Disappears: Vanishing Industry in Ontario, documents through photography the grim reality of the changing landscape of industry in the province and shows there is beauty to be found in these forlorn and desolate environments.
“Once vibrant workplaces throughout Ontario now echo with the impact of plant closures on our economy and social environment,” says Davison. “Many buildings, now abandoned, are left to the ravages of time while others have been demolished or adapted and re-purposed.”
Tomorrow Disappears features images from demolished manufacturing plants and abandoned factories such as the Breithaupt Block, Dominion Electrohome, McCormick’s Candy Factory, Budd Automotive, the William Street Pump Station and RMS Machinery.
