The Project

401 Richmond teems with dynamic and interactive exhibitions, installations and performances created by homegrown talent and artists as far away as the Canadian Arctic. Entitled Built for Art, this curatorial initiative features many of the galleries and arts organizations that call 401 Richmond home while also presenting visiting creators in various public and not-so-conventional spaces in the building. Two floors of creative exploration await Nuit Blanche revellers for a unique experience that highlights diverse artistic and cultural practices which showcases the iconic address that continues to transform Toronto’s cultural landscape.
