For 'Partners (The Teddy Bear Project)', curator Ydessa Hendeles collected more than 3,000 photographs
of teddy bears dating from roughly 1900-1940. These photographs are presented in a floor-to-ceiling, two-
storey installation designed to evoke an atmosphere of a library or archive room. The images are arranged 
in categories that reflect the peculiar ubiquity of the teddy bear as a symbolic object: children, men and women, 
soldiers, and elderly people holding teddy bears, people dressed up as teddy bears, or teddy bears in the background 
of significant social moments. First shown in Toronto in 2002-2003, 'Partners (The Teddy Bear Project)' later traveled to 
the Haus der Kunst in Munich, the National Gallery of Canada, and the Gwangji Art Biennale 2010.
