2018 marked the 11th year of Artist Project, Toronto's Contemporary Art Fair. I've been going to the five day art fair for about the past five years. I've learned that comfortable footwear is a good idea. After all, there are more than 250 artists to see, and thousands of works of art, including performance art and the installation zone. The always popular Art Chats feature talks by leading art and design experts. This year I saw many returning artists, artists I've seen before at other art shows, and artists that I've been following on social media for a while. It's always nice to see completed works in person after following the artist's creation process online.
Here are some of my favourites:
This is what visitors saw upon walking into the show. This 100 foot-long installation is made out of paper! It was gorgeous and if I had 100 feet of wall space, I would definitely want this for my walls.
I couldn't get a good picture of the winning submission by Lana Filippone, but you'll see her work later in the post. Some of the other creative submissions:
The rest of the show:

I'll be sure to have my comfortable shoes ready again for next year. Did you attend this year's show? What were your highlights? Check out my Instagram to see some videos I took at the show.
