Canada’s leading contemporary outdoor and online art fair

July 12 – 14, 2024.

The Earth and the Ether – Day 3 of TOAF62

We get a thrill in following artists as they explore new dimensions and possibilities. Artists featured in this year’s programming at the Fair will transport us to imaginative universes. 

In Art Nest, curated by Fatma Hendawy, artists are creatively responding to the structure, architecture and meaning of Nathan Phillips Square, building physical immersive structures that invite audiences into new worlds through captivating sensory interactions. 

In the inaugural Video Art showcase curated by Alex McLeod, artists take us into digital environments sharing stories where the theme of water – portrayed as mythological, devotional, and resilient – flows through their works. 

Tune in on Instagram Live for our first Artist Chat of the series between Francophone digital media artists Martine Dupuis and Jérôme Guilleaume. Stay tuned tonight for a ceramics studio tour of Mao Projects from the dynamic duo Mao Chen & Chris Savage.

Please enjoy Curated Collections of the day Not Fragile by Omar Badrin and Objects of Desire by Irene Frolic.
