401 Richmond

Since its inception at the turn of the 20th century, 401 Richmond has been a repository for many forms of creativity. This unique structure offers room for making, it is a site for action, an opportunity for reflection and a catalyst for growth. These merits can be said to describe its current architectural philosophy as readily as they embrace the diverse communities that have called this venue home. Over time, countless artists, designers, cultural producers, microenterprises, galleries, festivals, and retailers have shaped and reshaped 401 – both by laying bricks and by crafting content. 401 is in a perpetual state of reconstruction and revelation as it endeavours to spotlight the many situations, conventional and otherwise, in which art and artistry can happen.

Brick, Brink and a Space in Between challenges and excites, with exhibitions, installations and performances created by both homegrown talent and by artists from as far away as the Canadian Arctic. True to form and function, the building plays cultural convener, presenting an ambitious program that activates the history and possibilities of the site.

Join us, from dusk until dawn, in exploring the personality of place and the role that this ubiquitous address plays as artistic advocate and cultural guardian.
