Art Spin, your favourite curated art tour, is back!
Since 2009, Art Spin has been activating decommissioned venues and unique public spaces to produce large-scale group exhibitions and bicycle-led tours. Their primary goal is to bridge the gap between the art world and the general public.
In a new type of venture, Art Spin is trading in the bikes and taking to the sea aboard the historic tall ship Kajama. On August 12, the three-hour tour will sail across Toronto’s inner harbour through the beautiful islands and take a rare foray into the waterways of the Port Lands. From the sides of the boat, you may come across art installations on land, performative interventions on water, and quizzical messages in the sky. Inspired by our waterfront surroundings, this tour will explore a range of ideas around forced migration, the natural vs. re-naturalized waterways, and the fate of industry in the Port Lands.
In keeping with the Art Spin experience, specific details about the programming will be kept under wraps until the day of the event. The tour will be joined by emcee and trumpeter extraordinaire Michael Louis Johnson, as well as DJ General Eclectic.
Art Spin’s Kajama Boat Tour takes place Sunday, August 12 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. For more information, click here. Please note that tickets are only available online and in advance, so don’t wait! Get them here.
