press release

Art Toronto is underpinned by a series of special projects contributing to the dialogue on contemporary and modern art. This programming reinforces the Fair's reputation as the most comprehensive and thought-provoking art experience in Canada.

Everything Must Go Curated by Jeremy Laing Everything Must Go takes the form of a mini-department store or luxury boutique. Housed within the Fair, this shop-in-shop is outfitted with work engaging with the forms, manners and aesthetic of mercantile display and salesmanship. Everything is art and anything can be bought. The boutique features work by Toronto's Young & Giroux, Derek Sullivan and Montréal's Valérie Blass.

Canadian Art Now The new exhibition series Canadian Art Now, curated by Canadian Art editor Richard Rhodes, presents True Stories: A Photo Excursion. The series looks at works by photographers Donald Weber, Evan Lee, Alison Rossiter and Thomas Kneubühler, which are scheduled in three separate exhibitions during the Fair. A discussion of the art with Canadian Art's editor Richard Rhodes, takes place at 2:00pm Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Presented by Canadian Art Magazine.

Buy Early, Buy Young Friday October 30 | 6pm Join AXA Art Insurance, Manny Neubacher and Anya Shor as they de-mystify the process of beginning, building and caring for a collection. The discussion and tour will focus on art under 5000 CND in order to give audience the opportunity to view attainable pieces at the lower end of the price scale but still providing aspiring examples of perhaps larger pieces at the higher end that are still within reason for a novice collector. Presented by AXA Art Insurance.
