About Doors Open Toronto:

The 19th annual Doors Open Toronto presented by Great Gulf provides an opportunity to see inside more than 130 of the most architecturally, historically, culturally and socially significant buildings across the city.

This year’s theme, “Film: The Great Romance” explores the city’s film and television industry. With more than 1,400 on-location film, television and digital media productions taking place in the city each year, Toronto is North America’s third largest screen-based production centre and the heart of Canada’s film and television sector.

The Doors Open Toronto program features historic cinemas, film and television studios, post-production houses, digital media studios, artist-run centres and film training schools. The program also highlights buildings that have been featured in film and television, many of which are often not open to the public.

401 Richmond Street West and the Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers are excited to announce the 401 Built for Art Nuit Blanche Career Launcher providing exhibition opportunity inside 401’s historic building to one public art project (installation, performance, etc.) during Nuit Blanche Toronto 2018 on September 29 2018 from 7pm to 7am. 
Inspired by the entrepreneurial television series’ Shark Tank and Dragons’ Den, Dragon Tank aims to reproduce the absurd products pitched within them. With humour in mind, the artworks will function as vestiges of the most needed and most useless consumer products. In a time when ridiculous and nonsensical has become the norm, we are critical of the enigmatic ‘North American Dream’ capitalism offers to consumers and entrepreneurs alike. And question who this ‘dream’ is really for, in the context of race, gender, sexuality, and class.
