Art Toronto, Canada’s international fair for modern and contemporary art, celebrates its 20th anniversary season this year. Founded in 2000 by Linel Rebenchuk, Art Toronto has grown exponentially. Today the fair is an integral event in the Canadian visual art sector, presenting work from over 100 international art galleries, and attracting more than 20,000 art collectors, professionals and enthusiasts from all over the world to Toronto.
In celebration of a milestone, Art Toronto brings a fresh set of artists and galleries to the fair with FOCUS: Portugal, featuring Portuguese artists whose practices reflect and question our current global reality. The exhibition will be curated by João Ribas, a Portuguese curator with a uniquely global perspective, whose recent curatorial endeavours include the Portuguese Pavilion for the 58th Venice Biennale 2019.
Fair programming will also include: PLATFORM, a program of talks and panel discussions with prominent art industry figures, and POWER TALKS, an artist conversation series organized in partnership with the Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery. Additional onsite features include curated project spaces, and an arts-focused publication lounge.
