At Torontoist, we’re so used to writing about certain niche genres of art—graffiti art, video art, comic art, participatory art, billboard liberation art, performance art, outdoor art, nocturnal art, transit art—that we tend to forget about the encompassing category of “fine art for the commercial market.”
Canadian and international contemporary art enthusiasts will descend upon the Metro Toronto Convention Centre (255 Front Street West) this weekend from October 25–29 for the Toronto International Art Fair. In only four days, 100 galleries from 10 countries will be showcasing over 5000 works of art priced from $300 to $3-million. We’ll be there on Saturday to window shop and photograph the action.
Tickets are $16 per day or $40 for a weekend pass. Students and seniors can visit for $12 daily, and children under 10 are free. The show opens at noon and runs until 8:00 p.m. on Friday/Saturday and 7:00 p.m. on Sunday/Monday.
