Desire Lines - Exhibition by Art Spin


Art Spin is thrilled to present, in partnership with Waterfront Toronto, a free and exciting group exhibition titled Desire Lines, showcasing the work of some of our most notable regional artists presenting artwork from a wide variety of disciplines and curated by Art Spin’s Layne Hinton & Rui Pimenta.

This exhibition responds to themes that deal with the highly nuanced dynamic of placemaking and what constitutes the concept of home, as well as exploring our complex and storied relationship to our waterfront. Desire Lines is curated in both a massive 8000 sqft. warehouse and retired condo presentation centre with many works responding to the unique features of the space itself.

291 Lake Shore Boulevard East (just west of Parliament St.)
Look for a painted white warehouse. The exhibition is fully accessible. The space, which is just south of the Distillery District, can be accessed easily by bicycle from the Waterfront Trail, or by car via Queens Quay, there is a paid parking lot available on site.
