Edition Toronto is dedicated to the promotion of art book publishing in all forms, while building an appreciation for artworks produced in editions of more than one.
October 28–31, 2016 will mark the first Edition art book fair in Toronto. Running concurrently with Art Toronto, Canada’s international art fair (which had over 21,000 visitors last year) at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, the Edition fair shares a focus on contemporary art practices. Edition will welcome book publishers, commercial galleries, artist-run centres, and independent artists, collectives, book-makers and dealers from around the world. Visitors will have their eyes and minds opened to alternative ways of looking at and collecting art as they browse a wide range of contemporary and historical editions, multiples, publications and collectible art-related ephemera.
Edition Toronto is also pleased to be collaborating with Art Metropole, an organization that has been dedicated to the promotion, distribution and conservation of artist’s books and multiples since 1974, in the development of the fair’s programming. Throughout the weekend, workshops and panel discussions by local, national and international artists, curators, collectors, critics, performers and other visionaries will educate, enlighten and engage visitors to the fair.
Admission to the Edition fair is free.
