TORONTO, ON (Feb 1, 2019) – Toronto’s favorite art fair returns on February 21st to 24th, bringing together artists from a variety of disciplines to showcase their talents at the 12th annual Artist Project. Hosted at the Better Living Center, the contemporary art fair opens its doors to gallerists, curators, collectors, art aficionados and new art lovers to connect with over 300 emerging or established Canadian and international artists.

The shoppable gallery-style experience intimately connects guests with artists for a more personal experience with art. Guests will enjoy interactive installations, live artist competitions and engaging, expert-led Art Chats and Art Walks. “Art is a powerful storytelling tool, and we wanted to reflect that with our theme – A More Personal Experience With Art,” said Emily-Jean Alexander, Director of Artist Project. “Artist Project offers a special experience where attendees can better connect with a piece by interacting directly with the artist, giving a more meaningful experience to the process of looking and buying.”

The four-day exhibition kicks off with an Opening Night Party that celebrates the city’s art culture, with music from LUXELIFE SOUND. The first art experience guests encounter at Artist Project will be an expansive, vibrant installation on the front entrance wall from Pauline Loctin. Her love of color, patterns, layering and play of shadows and lights led her to create Ancestrale II, composed of painted designs and three-dimensional origami folded paper art.
