ArT | EDIT Sept. 28 to Oct. 8, East Har­bour

Toronto Life - - Culture -

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.
