Toronto is one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world. In a society of advanced communication, concepts of borders, both geographic and cultural are being redefined. What will this mean for the identity of artists in Toronto and abroad? Through this panel discussion our aim is to address ideas of identity, internationalism, communication and technology as it relates to art and culture by drawing upon the opinions of arts professionals: Gareth Bate, Ella Cooper and Jim Hake. The lecture will be moderated and led by Li Koo, Director of 918 Bathurst Culture, Arts, Media & Education Centre and Stanzie Tooth, Artist and Curator for Lonsdale Gallery.

Art 2009 is unique to Toronto as it is hosting Canadian artists along side international artists who have been connected to the fair through their national embassies. More than just another commercial art fair, Art 2009 was created in the hopes of bridging the gap between Canadian and international artists to create an expressive and affordable forum for them to exhibit together and share ideas.

Tickets for fair (including admission to discussion and special presentations):
$12 per day/$20 3 day pass
kids: $6 per day
