Sculpting New Reads is the third annual contemporary art program of The Word On The Street Toronto – Canada’s largest book and magazine festival. Held on the grounds of the Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, this exhibition brings together Canadian artists and authors to explore how books can inspire new ways of thinking, creating and innovating.
Participating Artists: Diana Hosseini, W.W. Hung, Mark Laliberte and Shannon Scanlan.
Curated by: Labspace Studio
Four local artists have been paired with four newly released Canadian books. Each artist has been challenged to create an art installation inspired by the themes of their book, applying their own unique practice to the creative process.
