This should be invisible

Toronto could be getting its own arts biennale

Miami has one. So does Venice and Berlin. Heck, even Vancouver has an arts biennale although chances are you haven't heard of it. Now, it looks like Toronto might get in on the action.

Last night, a motion passed at City Council for city staff to look into the feasibility of hosting an arts biennale as soon as 2017.

Whether Toronto's biennale ends up looking more like Berlin or Vancouver remains to be seen. A lot of work needs to happen between now and then to tap into the local arts community for their vision and ideas of what this could look like. Money in the form of government funding and big time sponsors (hello Scotiabank) would also be a key ingredient.
