Located in the emerging Bloor & Lansdowne
district, annhomanART exhibited the first in the Emerging Artists
series in October 2007, showcasing the work of talented young artists.
Curator, Ann Homan, has created a space for new
grads - to keep them working, to keep them enthusiastic, to help them
make their living making art.
Homan was guest curator at the critically-acclaimed
Nuit Blanche independent project, Bloor NIGHTLIGHT. That event
mobilized 50 contemporary artists boost the process of urban revival by
introducing engaged art and cultural projects into the at-risk
neighbourhood. The interactive flash-based video piece,
WindowShopping by Andy Morris, was created especially for
BloorNIGHTLIGHT, and engaged viewers and participants into virtually
trying on clothing in an otherwise empty, unused storefront.

to be one of my favourite parts of the night" Nuit Blanche Blog
