About the Toronto Biennial of Art

Launching September 21, 2019, the Toronto Biennial of Art is a new international contemporary visual arts event as culturally connected and diverse as the city itself. For 72 days, Toronto and surrounding areas will be transformed by free exhibitions, talks, and performances that reflect our local context while engaging with the most pressing issues of our time.

Curatorial Vision: How Are We In Relation?  

“Curated by Candice Hopkins and Tairone Bastien, the 2019 Toronto Biennial of Art takes up the question “What does it mean to be in relation?” While the latter invites us to contemplate different kinds of “relations” and how they forge communion and ecosystems, it also provokes us to consider the ways in which we are out of relation—out of synch, disconnected, alienated. Grounded in the Indigenous, immigrant, and settler histories that have shaped what we now call Toronto, the inaugural Biennial asks us to reexamine the past to project alternative futures that expand our ways of knowing and becoming.”  https://torontobiennial.org/#about
