/What to experience

FOCUS: California

This year’s Art Toronto features FOCUS: California, showcasing the artists and galleries that shape and transform the many versions of California that pervade our imaginations.

California-based curators, Kim Nguyen (Curator and Head of Programs at the CCA Wattis Institute, San Francisco) and Glen Helfand (Associate Professor at California College of the Arts, San Francisco, independent writer and curator based in Oakland, California) found inspiration in the shifting terrain and cultural landscape of California for the exhibition, INDOOR/OUTDOOR.
