Location: Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art; 952 Queen St W

Come celebrate the launch of the 2010 festival and the opening of The Mechanical Bride, one of three primary exhibitions in CONTACT this year. Mirroring a world devoted to the image, this critically provocative exhibition explores the social and cultural affect of images and their emotional and political implications. Artists John Armstrong & Paul Collins, Dana Claxton, Kota Ezawa, Jacqueline Hassink, David LaChapelle, Ryan McGinley, Josephine Meckseper, Matt Siber, Alec Soth and Britta Thie reveal the vital connections between mass media, advertising, painting and photography.
