Floating Point Gallery is pleased to introduce the next phase in its ongoing expansion of digital initiatives by presenting a metaverse experience in Art Toronto.

We are a few days away from Toronto’s biggest cultural event. Since 2000, Art Toronto has been the go-to Canadian art show for collectors, art consultants, curators, national and international galleries, and art lovers from all over Canada. This year marks the official return to an in-person event, giving you an opportunity for a richer cultural experience. You will find major Canadian and international galleries showing works in all media, under the same roof.

“Floating Point Gallery is excited to present Art Toronto with a critical and subversive contribution to the art history of virtual reality: the first metaverse experience ever presented at a fair in Canada.”
-Candice Houtekier, Founder of Floating Point Gallery

In collaboration with Art Gate, the gallery will host a four-day event in the metaverse. Floating Point Gallery will be unveiling works by Quebec artist Antoine Lortie, in a virtual gallery available on the metaverse platform. The 3D environment will contain a cross-section of NFTS, wearables, and virtual installations, free-ranging experimentation presented in the relatively new medium of VR art, supporting Antoine Lortie in his quest to challenge and redefine the limits of what is possible.

The gallery director and the artist will be available for consultation throughout the art fair —physically and digitally— allowing an immediate connection of market expertise to worldwide collectors. This initiative offers access to the Floating Point Gallery booth during Art Toronto to online users located anywhere in the world.

We are so grateful for the continued support from our sponsors and incubators since the official launch of the gallery, on March 31, 2022. A particular thanks to META, CFC Media Lab, and Art Gate VR. Their sponsorship enables us to continue empowering, shaping, and advancing opportunities for new generations of Canadian storytellers and creators – we couldn’t do what we do without their support. Merci!
