The Toronto Biennial of Art is a new, free, citywide experience. These views of the international contemporary visual arts event offer a glimpse into the exhibitions and performances that reflect local culture while engaging with global issues of our time. Curated by Candice Hopkins, The Shoreline Dilemma aims to inspire individuals, bridge communities, and reveal diverse perspectives by animating 23 sites from the center to the fringe of this sprawling lakefront city.
Miles apart, a building that once housed a car dealership on East Lake Shore Boulevard and part of a former munitions plant on Lakeshore Road serve as the main venues. The Biennial threads its way through the space between—occupying public spaces and buildings in the harbor, a naval base, the original IMAX theater known as Cinesphere, industrial sites, a train station, as well as Toronto’s museums and galleries.
