Villa #Toronto art in Union Station

Raster and Art Metropole's traveling, contemporary art event is in the cavernous Great Hall from Jan 16-23, 2015. In addition the free, week long exhibition will also have a number of special events located around the city and open to the public.

"Villa Toronto is the most recent in a series of international gallery meetings initiated by Raster. Previous editions took place in Warsaw (2006), Reykjavik (2010) and Tokyo (2011). The event is not an art fair. Rather, the villa project aims to use the curatorial experience of private galleries to create encounters with the general public and local art communities that are innovative, stimulating, and not merely market driven. The project recognizes the decisive role private galleries play in determining the field of contemporary art and the type of explorations that take place within it. Villa encourages the cross-cultural circulation of art, artists and cultural workers, and dedicates its resources and focus to facilitate such an exchange, throughout the project and in the years to come. In the central Toronto, this collaboration will come together in Union Station—a place with great potential to boost the artistic appreciation of Torontonians."
