There's An Amazing Art Fair Happening in Toronto this Weekend

If you consider yourself an art enthusiast, consider yourself in the right place. We’ve got news on a big event that’s happening this weekend that’ll certainly excite you.

From Thursday, February 23rd to Sunday, February 26th, Artist Project will be back in Toronto for its 10th year in a row. For those who don’t know, Artist Project is one of the most anticipated events in the art world, attracting everyone from collectors and curators to gallerists and designers.

This year, the four-day art fair’s theme is Birthday Party and will feature artwork from over 250 contemporary international and Canadian artists. Visitors can expect to see some outstanding pieces, including a 100-foot-long front entrance installation by LA-based Tracy Hiner dubbed The Tenth Tide and a moving sculpture inspired by the human body’s language of movement in space by Canadian artist W.W. Hung. Here’s a little taste of what you can expect:

Visitors can also check out Art Chats led by some of the industry’s most notable individuals, an Art Battle that will see 16 artists compete in painting, performance art in the form of Kevin Holliday’s multimedia performance Rub, and take part in the Birthday Artist Competition by voting for their favourite Birthday themed pieces.

But the best part is, Artist Project will connect you directly to the artists behind the art and visitors will be able to shop on site and discover the truth and inspiration behind each piece.

If you’re interested in checking out the event, which takes place at Exhibition Place, tickets are $15 at the door or $14 online for adults, $10 for seniors (65+) and youth (13-17), and children under 12 are free. Get your tickets here.
