The final Art Spin of the season concluded on Thursday evening in deserving fashion. The wheels were set in motion as legions came out on bike in camaraderie to experience diversity in the arts. Accompanied by humidity and clear skies, the stars were perfectly aligned to illuminate creative expression before drawing the shades on another Toronto summer.
The August edition itinerary from their web site, “The Fourth Annual Art Spin Exhibition takes its cue from the building it occupies, featuring works that explore its industrial heritage and history of neglect and decay while highlighting the disappearance of Toronto’s industrial past. This group exhibition curated by Layne Hinton and Rui Pimenta of Art Spin features works in various mediums including site-specific installation, sculpture, painting, photography, new media, and performance art.”
The highlight of the event culminated with The Fourth Annual Art Exhibited held at the Tower Automotive building in the heart of an industrial zone. While remnants of this historic past are still present, there is little doubt that Art Spin, now burgeoning on festival status, has begun to leave an indefinable mark of its own.
