The latest exhibition curated by Art Spin opens on Thursday August 24th
Art Spin is excited to present, in partnership with Waterfront Toronto, a free and exciting group exhibition titled Desire Lines, showcasing the work of some of our most notable regional artists presenting artwork from a wide variety of disciplines and opening this Thursday August 24th.
This exhibition responds to themes that deal with the highly nuanced dynamic of place making and what constitutes the concept of home, as well as exploring our complex and storied relationship to our waterfront. Desire Lines will transform a massive 8000 sqft. warehouse and retired condo presentation centre with many works responding to the unique features of the space itself.
