Built in 1920, the Tower Automotive building had an industrious history in aluminum, sheet-casting and automotive parts. In 2005 it was designated a heritage site and then shortly thereafter, closed. For years the ten story historic structure sat abandoned, occasionally accessed by trespassing graffiti artists, photographers and urban explorers alike.

The Fourth Annual Art Spin Exhibition takes its cue from the building it occupies, featuring works that explore its industrial heritage and history of neglect and decay while highlighting the disappearance of Toronto’s industrial past.

This group exhibition curated by Layne Hinton and Rui Pimenta of Art Spin features works in various mediums including site-specific installation, sculpture, painting, photography, new media, and performance art.

Artists include:
Vuk Dragojevic • Martie Giefert • Mary Grisey • John Haney & Carey Jernigan• Markus Heckmann • Layne Hinton • Caroline Larsen• Celia Neubauer • Kal Mansur • Noel Middleton • John Oswald • Geoffrey Pugen • Lois Schklar • Jennifer Rose Sciarrino • Michael Toke • Elinor Whidden • Jinny Yu
