Ice Breakers 2017 / by Justin Ridgeway

In the summer of 2016 Toronto' Waterfront BIA approached the Winter Stations team to come up with a project to animate the waterfront area along Queen's Quay. We came up with Ice Breakers - five curated temporary art installations dispersed amongst the parks and public spaces lining the commercial and residential boulevard. For its inaugural year, we approached Platant (Copenhagen, Denmark) and Winter Stations alumni, Michaela MacLeod and Nicholas Croft to contribute installations alongside projects developed RAW Design Inc. (co-founder), Ferris & Associates (co-founder) and curio x Jaspal Riyait. The exhibition opened on January 23, 2017.
