The top 5 new art galleries in Toronto

The top new galleries in Toronto are diverse, ranging from veritable institutions that have just moved, to a nomadic upstart named after the reigning queen of pop culture. Today, the arts scene is less conventional than it once was, which makes it more fun to explore.

Here, in no particular order, are my picks for the top new art galleries in Toronto.

Gallery TPW

The 38-year-old Toronto Photographers Workshop has moved to the Junction Triangle. The gallery combines TPW and R&D, a research and design space.  Contemporary art fans take note because Clint Roenisch's gallery is right next door.

Younger than Beyoncé

After running a successful Indiegogo campaign and launching earlier this year, YTB aims to give emerging artists exhibition opportunities.

8-11

Though the 8-11 art collective replaced its infamous storefront sign, a riff on the 7-Eleven logo by artist Elle Kurancid, the group continues to host eclectic exhibitions and events out of its tiny, but versatile space in Chinatown.

Autumn

This Roncesvalles space showcases contemporary and multimedia work that often explores city life. Exhibitions have included Daniel Rotsztain's All the Libraries, and a solo show by artist Peter Triantos.

Super Wonder Gallery

After migrating north from 99 Sudbury to Bloor and Ossington in March, this gallery and events space christened its new home with the annual erotic art exhibition The Super Naughty Show. Is this the beginning of a gallery scene in Bloorcourt?
