Do you feel like textile art is following you around? That’s probably because the Toronto digital advertising company, Pattison Onestop, recently launched its Art in Transit program across 42 shopping centres across Canada.
Curated by Pattison OneStop’s Sharon Switzer, the project features looped programming on the company’s digital mall screens. Best of all, for the first exhibition, (on until January 27), Switzer turned to Helena Frei and Chris Mitchell, curators of our annual textile exhibit, Hard Twist, to find a pair of artists whose work would best suit the medium.
In the end, Helena and Chris turned to current Hard Twist participants Andrea Vander Kooij and Keiley Stewart. Keep your eyes open for Art in Transit screens across the city, and make sure you check out Hard Twist on the 3rd and 4th floors of the hotel 12-5pm daily, before it ends this Sunday, January 27.
