The list of artists includes Susan Dobson, Peter Funch, Esther Hovers, Sanaz Mazinani, Zinnia Naqvi, Mario Pfeifer, Bianca Salvo, Sputnik Photos, Nadine Stijns, Carmen Winant, and Elizabeth Zvonar. The Festival's Artistic Director Bonnie Rubenstein said, Carrie Mae Weems' dynamic images will be shown at high-profile locations including the street level windows of the TIFF Bell Lightbox, home of the Toronto International Film Festival. Venues will include a subway station, storefronts, corporate lobbies, outdoor recreation areas, shipping containers, and billboards. ( As reported in the news.
