Residency Update: Federico Gama

As part of The Grange Prize 2009, Federico Gama spent 14 days in Toronto examining Mexicans who have immigrated to Canada. His study began as a broad look at a variety of Mexican immigrants across various sectors but in the end he chose to focus this first exploration on those who have found work in the cultural sector. Gama hopes to return to complete the portraits.
