From March to December 2013 took place Paris-Toronto, an unprecedented series of events organized by nine Toronto institutions.

Coordinated by the Consulate General of France in Toronto with support from the Institut français, Paris-Toronto’s purpose was to highlight contemporary art from France and to foster connections between the two cities’ art scenes.

These artistic residency programs, exhibitions, conferences, workshops and public lectures, were all organized by well-established Toronto institutions : the Art Gallery of Ontario, Art Metropole, Canadian Art Foundation, City of Toronto (Scotiabank Nuit blanche), Elegoa Cultural Productions, the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery, The Power Plant, the Ryerson Image Centre, and Vtape. Each event created opportunities for interaction between artists, curators, scholars, critics, and audiences from the two cities.

More information on the whole series can be found on the website.
