Our Pick of the Week: Wonder Exhibit

Have you ever wondered what the inside of the former Weston Bread Factory looks like? Find out this weekend when the famous east-end landmark opens its doors to the public for Wonder.

The exhibit, hosted by Graywood and Alterra as part of Scotiabank CONTACT Festival, features a selection of photos by Toronto photographer and aviation enthusiast Laird Kay that offer an interesting look at the industrial workings of the factory. Attendees will be able to explore the historical building, which could soon be transformed into a condominium.

“Just like the bread that was made, proofed, and baked here in this building, the factory is changing and still has many stories to tell,” Kay says. “The details of the equipment have been abstracted and are seen as sculpture and as graphic design. This building is still a wonder.”

Wonder runs May 12-13 and May 19-20 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at 462 Eastern Ave. Admission is free!
