Urban Rising – New Heights for Emerging Artists is presented by Art Collectif in partnership with Chestnut Park Real Estate and the Shangri-La Residences. The collection of works selected for Urban Rising feature key works by eight of Toronto’s most promising contemporary artists.
What better venue to showcase the work of Toronto’s rising stars than the penthouse suites at the Shangri-La Residences? Towering over Toronto from the 65th floor, one witnesses our large city become small, abstract and interconnected. Similarly, as our artists emerge and begin to develop and expand their practice, the world recedes, allowing the artist to see what is possible and to become more connected, both locally and globally.

Curator’s Note (Curator: Erika Floysvik, Founder of Art Collectif):
In selecting the artists and works of art for the Urban Rising exhibit, I was interested in featuring a diverse body of work to represent the diverse approach artists take to expressing themselves and their media. The emerging artists short-listed for this exhibit vary in their subject matter, method and medium however they all share a tireless commitment to honing their craft and evolving on broader stage. They are the rising stars of Toronto’s art market and ones to watch!
