WHAT: Heritage Complex, an exhibition featuring architecturally based installation and multimedia work
WHEN: Opened on June 26, running until September 7, 2008
WHERE: Art Gallery of Peel, 9 Wellington St. E, Brampton, Ontario

Developed by Tejpal Ajji and Atanas Bozdarov, Heritage Complex probes the psychological state of adjacent places: emergent cities developing next to traditionally understood urban centres, communities built for factories and their workers, and parallel suburbs produced half a world apart. With pieces by Canadian and international artists and artist collectives, the exhibition features videos, drawings, and photographs that reflect the evolving identities of cities from Brampton, Ontario to Northern Shenzen, China.
