unscheduled arrivals emerges from Distribution Infrastructures, a site-specific call for submissions concerned with global infrastructural politics and the capitalist transportation of goods. Such themes are informed by Bunker 2’s past life as a refrigeration and transportation unit used in the 1970s by the Canadian Armed Forces, as well as its current location in the Junction Triangle, a historically industrial neighbourhood defined by three intersecting railway lines: the CNR/CPR mainline to the west, Metrolinx GO Transit Barrie line to the east, and the CPR east-west lines to the north (the recent UP Express line, touted as a fast-paced, luxury connection to international flight routes, is also worth noting). In this place and time of rapid gentrification, increasing globalization, and meta-industrialization, the exhibition and its works examine how the transportation of goods (which may be physical or digital) shapes our infrastructural realities.
