Using Street-Level Space and the Grace Kelly Exhibition

Recently, I was passing by the TIFF Bell Lightbox, and was intrigued by its use of outdoor space. At the corner of King and Widmer Streets, the street-level display is dedicated to the exhibition Grace Kelly: From Movie Star to Princess. It's a collage of enlarged newspaper clippings and two monitors looping black and white news footage. The clippings and footage focus on Grace and her marriage to Rainier III, Prince of Monaco.

I'm not certain the display would have drawn me in to see the exhibition, as I'd probably see it any way. But I was taken by the use of video in relation to the street. It certainly caught my attention as I spent a couple of minutes perusing the clippings and watching the old news footage.
