The long-awaited re-opening of Toronto’s Museum of Contemporary Art was a success! Can’t wait to see what the future holds for this exciting institution.
Reasons why Toronto should be excited about the re-opening of MOCA.
Yesterday I was speaking to a photographer who, by most accounts, could be arguably described as "world class": he has a great deal of recognition in Europe; is a regular at the major global art shows; has exhibitions in museum-calibre institutions; was written up in Time magazine; and has works owned by people who live in homes described as palaces.
The recent proliferation of art fairs has impacted the global art market. Many have argued that their rise is a reaction to globalization and the online market; allowing for potential buyers to be exposed to a concentrated number of new artists. TheToronto Outdoor Art Exhibition, the largest outdoor art fair in Canada, has been filling Nathan Philip’s Square with a variety of local talent since 1961.
