The Fourth Annual Art Spin Exhibition
HISTORIC TOWER AUTOMOTIVE BUILDING
Opening night reception:
Thursday August 29th
Built in 1920, the Tower Automotive building had an industrious history in aluminum, sheet-casting and automotive parts. In 2005 it was designated a heritage site and then shortly thereafter, closed.For years the ten story historic structure sat abandoned, occasionally accessed by trespassing graffiti artists, photographers and urban explorers alike.
The FOURTH ANNUAL ART SPIN 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 Tower Automotive building is located at 158 Sterling Rd. (West of Lansdowne, North of Dundas).
Exhibition runs Aug 30th – Sept 1st.
Hours are 12pm-7pm Fri/Sat, 12pm-5pm on Sun.
