401 Richmond

Built for Art

Throughout Nuit Blanche Toronto’s 12-hour spectacle, 401 Richmond will be teeming with dynamic and interactive exhibitions, installations and performances created by home-grown talent and by artists from as far away as the Canadian Arctic. Entitled Built for Art, this curatorial initiative will feature many of the galleries and arts organizations that call 401 Richmond home, while also presenting visiting creators in a variety of public and not-so-conventional spaces in the building. Two floors of creative exploration await Nuit Blanche Toronto revellers for a unique experience that both highlights a diversity of cultural practice and showcases the iconic address that continues to transform Toronto’s cultural landscape.

Built at the turn of the 20thcentury as a lithography factory, 401 Richmond is a historic warehouse in downtown Toronto that is now a thriving cultural hub and home to some of the city’s most engaging artists, designers, producers, microenterprises, galleries, festivals and retailers. One of Toronto’s key arts centres, 401 Richmond is must-see destination for locals and visitors alike. Recipient of a Heritage Toronto Award of Merit for outstanding reuse of a historic building, 401 Richmond received heritage designation in 2007.
