Interactive Projects, Performance Art, Video/Film Installation, Site-Specific Enviro-Interventions, Music, Dance, Gallery Exhibitions, Open Studios

Our sprawling historic factory building turned cultural destination is a hub of contemporary art activity hosting numerous interactive and immersive projects all under one roof.

We work collaboratively with our artist community to mount projects that speak to the character of 401 Richmond and activate the space in unexpected and engaging ways. 

You'll find art in unconventional locations like a loading dock, courtyard or the basement alongside more traditional exhibition and presentation spaces. Dedicated explorers will truly find something around every corner: vintage music video screenings, open galleries, a postcard photo booth, live music and dance, interactive video installations, environmental interventions, and so much more. 

A guide for the event is available on our website.

Built for ART 2012—an array of artists engaging with the architecture, community, environment and history of 401 Richmond, and the City of Toronto.
