Toronto – April 20, 2017 — Tatar Art Projects is pleased to announce they have been engaged to develop the art program for the restored Broadview Hotel, a new cultural anchor for Toronto’s developing East side. TAP is working on a grassroots visual program with a mandate to feature works by Toronto artists in a variety of media. The featured artwork will honour the building’s rich history and pay homage to the neighbourhood in a contemporary way. The program will also include a curatorial nod to “Jilly’s” – one of Toronto’s most iconic adult entertainment venues for more than 30 years.
The hotel’s spaces will be activated through a variety of permanent artworks including murals, works on canvas, photography and integrated installations. There is a particularly interesting installation being created by a local artist who is, quite literally, using the bones of the old building.
Amy Pouliot, Senior Art Consultant.
Details about the selected artists and their work is under wraps until after the launch of The Broadview Hotel later this year. Developed by Streetcar Developments, this highly anticipated addition to the East side will include a 58-room boutique hotel, event space, an elegant main-floor restaurant and a roof top bar with a jaw-dropping view of the city.
