In collaboration with Justina M. Barnicke Gallery / University of Toronto Art Centre, PIA sponsored an extensive survey of Toronto artists entitled Showroom. The exhibition considered how the rapidly transforming cityscape has appeared both as backdrop and as material in Toronto artworks from the past decade. Some key highlights of the programming include a commissioned installation, the integration of works in sculpture, video, painting and painting from a wide gamut of local artists both senior and emergent.
