Patterns & Parallels: The Great Imperative to Survive

May 6, 2024 - July 26, 2024
On loan from the Roberta Bondar Foundation


Patterns & Parallels: The Great Imperative to Survive features photography from Dr. Roberta Bondar, the first female Canadian astronaut, to tell the story of the migratory patterns of three bird species: the Whooping Crane, Lesser Flamingo and Piping Plover.


The exhibition is a key part of the Roberta Bondar Foundation’s Space For Birds project, which uses photography to create a visual story that will help us understand the biodiversity of nature and the impact of human actions and climate change on bird migration and habitat loss.

Hosted in The Fashion Institute, the exhibition will be on display at

3166 Lake Shore Blvd W, Etobicoke, ON M8V 1L6.
