Younger Than Beyoncé Gallery’s Artist Selection - Spring 2016
May 20th – June 11th, 2016
Opening Reception: May 20th, 7 pm - 11 pm
563 Dundas Street East, Suite 201
FUTURE 33 presents the work of 33 Toronto artists who are currently producing compelling, relevant artwork. By bringing together a unique selection of acclaimed Toronto-based artists, the exhibition acts, as lookbook of those whom we believe will redefine the landscape of both the local and international art scene.
The curatorial premise of this exhibition was to have YTB Gallery’s two co-directors and six board members select a total of 33 artists amongst them. The non-hierarchical approach allows for a unique selection of artists, which resonates each board member’s individual practice, and allows for a much wider scope of disciplines and perspectives. Here we see well-established names alongside emerging artists from all over The Greater Toronto Area. By hosting FUTURE 33, we are showcasing work by our generation with a familiar curatorial voice.
As major Toronto art institutions such as MOCA and the AGO redefine their relationship to the city through future large-scale exhibitions about Toronto, YTB gallery is adding the voice of Toronto's largest generation of artists yet. Our goal is to influence these institutions to discover and support a new brand of artists.
