An art fest in a derelict soap factory
ArT | EDIT Sept. 28 to Oct. 8, East Harbour
Stop us if you’ve heard this one: a local arts organization takes over an abandoned factory in the Port Lands and throws a wild, one-of-a-kind festival. A year after Luminato hijacked the Hearn Generating Station, the Design Exchange is commandeering the old Unilever soap factory for EDIT, the Expo for Design, Innovation and Technology. The 150,000-square-foot immersive utopia will teem with brainy art installations and exhibitions, like Prosperity for All, which combines the war and disaster photography of Paolo Pellegrin with some of the world’s most innovative design projects, like giant vacuum cleaners that suck up smog in China.
