Artscape Youngplace


Come explore and experience bold contemporary artworks activating Artscape Youngplace’s outdoor billboard and indoor first floor studios and hallway galleries, presented by multiple artists and organizations. Artscape is proud to host two independent projects: (Dust Cycles #48) and (Precipice #49), as well as curated projects by Artscape Youngplace tenants in this fun and provocative set of exhibitions running all night long.

Stop by before midnight to catch Koffler Gallery’s fall exhibition Through lines. This exhibition brings together works that challenge notions of redaction, tackling its typical devices of shredding, blacking out, editing and covering up. Upturning these processes into restorative gestures, the artists’ specific approaches enable new forms of knowledge production and remembering, both politically and personally. Featured artists in Through lines include Lise Beaudry, Scott Benesiinaabandan, Michèle Pearson Clarke, Leila Fatemi, Maria Hupfield, Raafia Jessa and Nadia Myre. Guest curator is Noa Bronstein. Presented in partnership with Critical Distance Centre for Curators.

The TwoPenny Cafe will be open until 2:30am for a much-needed caffeine infusion! Koffler Centre of the Arts/ Koffler Gallery will remain open until 12:00am.

Part ideas laboratory, part creativity workshop, Artscape Youngplace is a community cultural hub operated by Artscape, located in Toronto’s West Queen West neighbourhood. With 75,000 sq. ft. of space devoted to artistic inspiration, learning, growth and expression, it is home to a variety of creative entrepreneurs and organizations, including the Koffler Centre of the Arts and Sketch. Opened in 2013, Artscape Youngplace is named in recognition of a generous lead gift from The Michael Young Family Foundation.
