Art Toronto ended this weekend but the organizers have noticed a growing interest in a pan-American fair:
“What we’ve noticed … is there has been a growing interest in North American galleries and South American galleries to participate in our fair here,” Rosenstock said. “To work with Asia or Europe, obviously, these are much further away. And there’s already a lot of fairs in Europe. It’s more of a challenge for us to make headway [there] than it has been in the North American and South American market. It’s where we can be sort of unique and make our mark.
“While we want to grow internationally,” she continued, “we don’t want it to be just a smaller version of the Armory [in New York] or Basel or [the Foire internationale d’art contemporain in Paris] placed in Toronto. We want to have our own identity and I think being strong in Canadian, American and South American galleries is a good place for us to be right now.”
Art Toronto — steadily growing since 2000 — is still about the community (The Globe and Mail)
