Art Toronto announces Kitty Scott as Focus Curator for 2023
Art Toronto has announced that legendary art curator Kitty Scott will lead the 24th edition of Canada’s art fair as the Focus exhibition curator. Scott’s decades-long career with Canada’s leading art institutions makes her the most respected curator in Canada. A champion for Canadian talent, Scott is also known for her curatorial vision for the Canadian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale from 2017 with Geoffrey Farmer and her role as co-curator at the Liverpool Biennial (2018).
As curator of the Focus exhibition, Scott will bring together artworks from participating Art Toronto galleries to create an exhibition from which works can be purchased by collectors. This represents a major collecting moment given Scott’s longtime support of emerging and established artists. Fairgoers are encouraged to view the Focus section as a unique piece of Canadian art history and watch as Scott’s institutional hat comes off for the first time in years.
