A Black Lives Matter outdoor photo exhibit has been vandalized.

The Sum of All Parts exhibit is part of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival and is the work of Jalani Morgan. The photos are displayed at Metro Hall, and in an Instagram post, Morgan showed the vandalism on his work.

“Valuing Toronto’s people and places, Morgan’s work asks Torontonians of diverse backgrounds to reflect upon and participate in this city’s culture as it is constituted by its equally diverse Black communities,” states the Festival’s website.

Parts of three photos at the exhibit were torn over the weekend, but Morgan showed the collaborative work to restore his pieces.

Using red string, Morgan and others sewed together the torn pieces, which remain displayed at Metro Hall.
