Temporary Collection is a new exhibition model that promotes, exhibits, and distributes artworks already purchased directly from artists. The collection supports 70 local, national and international artists for a total of 150 new media and contemporary artworks featured in the exhibition.

To see the exhibition, you can purchase a ticket from a unique price structure, with tickets ranging between $15 – $1500. Each ticket is paired with a 15-minute time slot for a video tour of the exhibition guided by the curators. At the end of the tour, you choose an artwork to keep. The higher priced tickets get you in to see the show sooner, which means more artwork for you to choose from.

A list of available artworks can be previewed on the exhibition website ahead of time and during the exhibition, so that visitors can speculate on the pieces they would like to add to their collection.

Though exhibition viewing will only take place via video tours, Temporary Collection will be fully installed in a 6500 sq/ft warehouse, located at 127 Woolwich Street, Guelph, from April 15 – 19, 2021.

Temporary Collection invites anyone from around the world to speculate on and invest in art.

Part of the exhibition’s appeal is that 100% of ticket sales will go towards supporting artists financially in the future through Ed Video’s programming opportunities.

All are welcome to participate in this new, daring, and exciting exhibition to benefit from the rapid de-accession of Ed Video’s collection.

This project is curated by Maddie Lychek and Scott McGovern of Ed Video, and the Exhibition Manager is Elly Grant.

Tickets and more information are available at www.temporarycollection.com.


Temporary Collection is possible because of support from the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council, and sponsors the Art Gallery of Guelph and the SOFAM at the University of Guelph.
