Built for ART at 401 is a unique, one-stop artistic experience, representing a synergy between on-site galleries, tenant artists, and the broader arts community.

401 Richmond is a heritage building in downtown Toronto that is rife with history. Over 100 years old, the building contains countless impressions, reflections of those who, over the years, have connected in immeasurable ways with this space. Their legacy is etched in enduring physical and psychological traces.

At the same time, the building is a thriving and exciting contemporary arts and culture hub, where people continue to make, collaborate, experiment and discover. Infinite moments have the potential to become part of a process of collective memory-making. It is a living archive. In response to the theme of archive, projects and performances will animate this artistic and cultural landmark.
