See Art Come to Life: 15 Installations & Live Performances Take Over the Fair

Artist Project is proud to support the work of 15 artists this year working in large-scale sculpture, conceptual art, performances and installations in the Installation Zone. Selected by a panel of judges, this feature exhibition aims to explore new ways in which large-scale sculpture and conceptual art expand and transform traditional spaces into experiential forms. See art come to life and explore the fair like never before.

Installation Zone Highlights

Artfully Awear by Ariel Adkins

Ariel Adkins’s mission is to be a living work of art each day. Creator of Artfully Awear, a movement dovetailing art and clothing, Ariel produces garments inspired by artwork from all different genres, mediums, and eras, all over the world. Watch Ariel recreate artwork in a wearable form as she paints live on the Art Chats stage. Click here for performance times. 

Under Construction by James Knott

OCAD University’s Centre for Emerging Artists & Designers partners with the Artist Project to present Under Construction. This installation explores the notion of “constructed realities”, particularly from a queer perspective, with the use of absurdity and camp theatrics as a coping mechanism.

Undressing Bart by Sangmin Lee

This installation addresses the layers of language associated with the body. Like clothes, our bodies can be bound to the cultural significance of associated shapes, colours and ultimately of surrounding objects. But like clothing, they are worn, separate insofar as it is not the body itself and thus Its power can be unraveled. See more.  

Time to Fly by Marina Nazarova

This mural project in the Art Lounge talks about the journey of our endless physical and mental motions. Our persistent movements are revealed in every single moment of our daily lives. We climb stairs, follow and break routines, chase dreams, lose control, fall down and get up again. See more.
