Nonsense group photo of 111 Toronto citizens by Yoshinori Niwa
A one-day performance workshop + performance experience

Date: July 17, 2009
Time: 1-4pm
Meeting spot: 401 Richmond Street West
Contact number: 416-822-3219

We need exactly 111 participants for this unique and hilarious experience and you are invited! Sign up today! Or just show up on Friday. Bring your friends and families, everyone is welcome!

Meet in the lobby of the 401 Richmond Street West building where we will organize ourselves, hear instructions from the artist, and venture out as a group to our photo location.

Nonsense group photo of 111 Toronto citizens is a playful project in which the artist will gather 111 Torontonians for the sole purpose of taking a group photograph with a large format camera at a selected Toronto landmark or tourist location. Reminiscent of summer travels with family, this project is both a guerrilla intervention challenging the norms of "acceptable" behaviour on a public street corner and a hilarious group performance, documented in real time, elaborated by size and scale.
