The Art of Banksy Exhibition Wednesday, June 13 - Wednesday, July 11 @ 213 Sterling Road, Toronto Tickets go on sale May 12 at www.banksyexhibit.com Toronto, ON – On Wednesday, June 13, Toronto welcomes the North American Premiere of "The Art of Banksy", an acclaimed showcase featuring 80 original works associated with, arguably, the most intriguing and talked-about artist in modern history. "The Art of Banksy" has already generated excitement in Melbourne, Amsterdam, Tel Aviv and Auckland. Now Toronto, having beat out both Athens and Stockholm, steps up to host this spectacular exhibit. Banksy, whose identity is the art world's biggest secret, is an enigmatic artist and world-recognized political activist. His graffiti-influenced stencil technique, often combined with anti-establishment slogans, is immediately recognizable and never fails to generate immediate attention. Banksy's various works, which in addition to paintings, also include sculptures and special displays, are seen on city walls, bridges and streets throughout the world. "The Art of Banksy", curated by Steve Lazarides, the artist's former agent, displays the world's largest collection of Banksy's works. Included in the exhibition are the iconic "Balloon Girl", ranked in 2017 as "The United Kingdom's number one favourite artwork", "Flag Wall", an urbanized take on the famous picture of soldiers raising the U.S. flag at Iwo Jima, "Laugh Now", a witty piece depicting a foreboding message, and many other pieces, no less compelling and equally thought-provoking. "This is a one-of-a-kind exhibition. You will never again have the opportunity to see this many of Banksy's works in one place. Once the exhibition is over, the artwork will be returned to art collectors around the world, and the chances that they will be displayed together again in the future are extremely slim," says Steve Lazarides. The Toronto exhibition will be mounted in a raw space at 213 Sterling Road (Lansdowne Metro stop), an area described by BlogTO as "Toronto's next big thing" and "a neighbourhood for art – contemporary art," with neighbouring businesses including the new location for the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Anansi Press, Henderson Brewing and Drake Commissary. This prestigious exhibition of originals – all privately owned by collectors – offers a rare opportunity for Toronto to enter Banksy's world. "Starvox Exhibits is pleased to bring to Toronto, the North American Premiere of "The Art of Banksy". I am proud to be able to have a collection of this calibre as the first exhibit under our new business division and in association with Live Nation," says Corey Ross, President & CEO, Starvox Exhibits. "Toronto, with its thriving visual arts scene is for us, the perfect city to premiere "The Art of Banksy" in North America," says Michel Boersma, Senior Vice President Family Entertainment & Theatre, Live Nation. "Together with Steve Lazarides, we have been able to assemble the largest collection of Banksy art ever exhibited, which is fitting for a world-class city like Toronto." Bell Media is the official media sponsor of "The Art of Banksy" exhibition. Worldwide demand for "The Art of Banksy" is off-the-charts. Consequently, the exhibit is scheduled to be in Toronto for 4 weeks only. Advance tickets are available through American Express "Front of the Line" beginning Monday, May 7. General tickets go on sale beginning Saturday, May 12 at 10:00 a.m. and are available online at www.banksyexhibit.com. A limited quantity of tickets will also be available on site at 213 Sterling starting June 13. Ticket price is $35.00.

Julie Lacroix, Director, AGAC For its inaugural edition, Feature talks will address a wide range of important topics such as our ever-evolving art market and the impact of universities in artistic practices. Several talks will engage in exciting and substantial conversations about the artworks presented at the fair. Guided tours led by a variety of arts professionals – curators, writers, scholars, etc. will be a great opportunity to encourage open and critical discussion about the works and galleries within the art fair context. These tours will focus on specific topics as a means to create connections among the galleries and artists with wider pertinent topics in contemporary art. The visits are open to all and will provide a compelling new way of experiencing an art fair and have been generously sponsored by The Esker Foundation.

Art Toronto 2011

Art Toronto 2011

Pink vinyl covered most of the Toronto Convention Centre’s foyer for Art Toronto 2011. The neon-coloured installation, by Achim Zeman, enveloped columns, the ceiling, and reception desk. The popping colour captivated people’s attention and the interest extended upstairs, into the main showroom. For four days, over 100 international galleries showcased emerging and seasoned artist’s static and interactive art. The fair’s 12th annual exhibition promised works for every taste and art collector’s budget. The fair was broken up into three categories: Next – a section dedicated to new galleries – the main showroom, and the open space, a newly-expanded area for sculptures. This year, Art Toronto commissioned its flagship project to Canadian artist Kent Monkman. His installation, The Art Game, was a maze that personified the difficult and confusing path artists wander to expose and sell their work. The Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art worked with Art Toronto to release limited edition prints by Toronto-based photographer Edward Burtynsky. The print sales were to benefit exhibitions and educational programming at MOCCA. His prints sold out the second day the fair was open to the public.

The highlight of the show was a 1971 BMW M1, painted by Andy Warhol in 23 minutes. The car was raised and tipped to display the patches of paint and finger-signed body. The M1 also raced in France’s Le Man circuit in 1976.

Light Installation Nuit Blanche Toronto

Global Rainbow

lite

Yvette Mattern – Berlin, Germany

Light Installation

Global Rainbow is poetic, magical and powerful. A high specification laser light projection beaming in parallel horizontal lines creates a natural perspective horizon arc simulating a natural rainbow arc with a trajectory of up to 60 km.

From Chinatown to one of Toronto’s most iconic buildings, the CN Tower, Global Rainbow blazes through Toronto’s night sky. It encompasses the skyline and its viewing perspective is as ephemeral as viewing a natural rainbow. This monumental installation is visible from all exhibition areas. As a powerful and luminescent symbol of peace and hope, it embraces geographical and social diversity.
