Artist Project kicks off February 19, 2015 with an Opening Night Party at the Better Living Centre at Exhibition Place in Toronto. Guests at the Artist Project will be able to meet and buy the art of more than 250 emerging and established artists. Whether you are a first time buyer or serious art collector, you are sure to find art that appeals to you.
This year, internationally-acclaimed artist, Bruno Billio, will showcase his work, Rocco, a 100 foot long installation featuring stacked ordinary objects connected with coloured string.
Another new event at the show this year is Art Battle, where on Opening Night (Fri., Feb. 20) from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., 16 artists will create a work within 20 minutes. The audience will vote for the winner. Works created at Art Battle will be available for purchase via silent auction. Throughout the weekend, artists will be chosen from the exhibition to compete live for guests of the show.
Guests at the Opening Party will be first to view and purchase art, enjoy cocktails and hors d’oeuvres and art performances. A portion of Opening Night Party ticket sales will be donated to the Canadian Art Foundation.
For the first time ever in Canada, Sony will showcase entries from the World Photography Awards and will award the Canadian National award to an entry. Attendees can cast their vote for the ‘People’s Choice’ award for the best Canadian image.
