ArtworxTO is bringing a wave of new public art to the city via 350 murals, exhibitions, installations and pop-up performances.

Over the course of the next year, Toronto will welcome an influx of creative projects, ranging from static pieces such as murals and installations through to events, dance, performance and exhibitions.

ArtworxTO takes place across the city, with launch exhibitions including HOME(LAND) – which explores ideas of identity and home – and All City Shine, bringing together pieces by BIPOC street artists that have all contributed work to Toronto in recent decades.

Residents can also discover other, smaller pop-up shows at hubs located across Toronto, which are designated as places for the next generation of curators, collectives and artists.

More artworks are set to be revealed next year, including Oluseye’s The Ark – a mirrored installation described as ‘a space of memory, personal accountability, and of future visioning, reflecting Canada’s colonial legacy’ – and a new mural by Mi’kmaq artist Jordan Bennett, rooted in the history of porcupine quillwork.
