Yesterday afternoon I explored the ninth annual Toronto International Art Fair (TIAF) and was blown away by the amazing selection of global talent (there were 100 galleries from 14 countries!) I had only previously been to the Artist Project so I was in for a big treat as this art fair was extremely different in its approach - rather than having individual artists showcasing their wares, you had galleries showing a variety of their featured artists with a more grown-up sophisticated vibe.
I loved it because...
There were melodies and music:
Lennon's actual visage is made up of hundreds of tiny Paul stamps!
There was pure feminine beauty:
There was cheeky pop:
There were touches of toile:
There was colour:
And there was Andrea Marcus .
I will definitely be returning to TIAF next year!
PS- It was also Nuit Blanche this weekend. I checked out the Queen and Ossington area- what a clusterf*ck! So disappointed with the lack of actual art (interactive or otherwise)
