OCTOBER 23 TO 26 Feast your eyes on the year’s most impressive assemblage of contemporary paintings, photographs, mixed-media works and more at Art Toronto. Canada’s international expo for contemporary art has returned with 80-plus respected galleries—including local leaders like Birch Contemporary and Nicholas Metivier Gallery—presenting both their heat-seeking talents and established luminaries to an eager audience. Topped up, as usual, by a number of expert lectures and specially commissioned installations, the 16th annual event also boasts a few new features: a segment of solo galleries has been established to highlight sought-after artists such as Japanese printmaker and sculptor Nobuaki Onishi and globetrotting Magnum photographer Larry Towell, while the returning “Focus” showcase has curator Abaseh Mirvali presenting works from South America. The fair’s floorplan has also been completely redesigned by New York architects FIRM a.d.—to maximize Art Toronto’s function not only as an art market and gallery, but also as a social gathering space.  —Craig Moy
