Art Toronto

Oct 24-27, 2014 Another great installment of Toronto’s Art Fair.  Established artists and galleries hung next to emerging talent.  Fogo island residency showcased their work and their space in a rustic booth. There was an art lounge, installations, and walls and walls of art!

Canada de Fantaisie / Canada Fancy, Art Toronto’s Feature Exhibition, created by the Québec-based trio BGL composed of Jasmin Bilodeau, Sébastien Giguère and Nicolas Laverdière, is a carousel made of recycled crowd barriers and metal fences activated by audiences who also have the chance to ride it. BGL will represent Canada at the prestigious 56th International Art Exhibition the Venice Biennale in Italy in 2015.

VSVSVS Nap Station provided a much needed place to rest in their bunk beds up the exquisitely crafted wooden steps. Nap time could be booked but they also welcomed drop ins.

Jennifer Marman & Daniel Borins Pavilion of the Blind is a large-scale kinetic
installation, featuring a colourful array of window blinds, panels, and shades, arranging and rearranging itself into a series of constantly hanging abstract compositions. Marman & Borins are represented by Cristin Tierney, New York.

Many of the galleries work can be viewed on Art-sy.
