June 22-24, 2016 - Urban Rising is presented by Art Collectif in partnership with Chestnut Park Real Estate and the Shangri-La Residences. Art Collectif is an art event and online art sales company whose mandate is to source and exhibit ART WORTH COLLECTING™. The collection of works selected for ‘Urban Rising’ feature key works by eight of Toronto’s most promising contemporary artists.
What better venue to showcase the work of Toronto’s rising stars than the penthouse suites at the Shangri-La Residences? Towering over Toronto from the 65th floor, one witnesses our large city become small, abstract and interconnected. Similarly, as our artists emerge and begin to broaden their exposure, the world recedes allowing the artist to see what is possible and to become more connected, both locally and globally.
