The Table x Art Metropole at Art Toronto 2018

Brittany Shepherd and Sofy Mesa

Visit Art Toronto to view a collection of Art Metropole’s published editions, posters and books selected from its 44-year history.

We’ll also be hosting two workshops at Art Toronto in conjunction with Brittany Shepherd and The Table, and presenting Basic Needs, a new Art Metropole edition by Sofia Mesa.

We’re proud to be participating with Art Toronto as a Cultural Partner.


The Table, a site-specific project by Toronto-based artist Brittany Shepherd, will be physically transported to the Art Metropole booth at Art Toronto where it will remain for the duration of the fair.

Two performances will take place in which a curated group of sixteen artists, writers and poets will be invited to read around The Table in groups of eight on two separate occasions.

In order to maintain the intimate environment fostered by The Table, the booth will be curtained off.

Please note that this event is invitation only. The readings will be streamed live on the Instagram accounts of Art Metropole and The Table for the general public to see.

Basic Needs, a series of multiples by Sofia Mesa and published by Art Metropole, will be launched in conjunction with this event.

This event is presented by Art Metropole, in collaboration with Art Toronto, Brittany Shepherd, and The Table.

The Table is a platform which invites artists, writers and curators to create private one-night happenings with the aim of fostering and intimate environment for engagement and participation amongst the guests. The documentation of the installations, readings, performances and dinners that take place at The Table is considered in advance of the evening and is disseminated online on social media and the website often including images and videos taken by the guests.

Performance Timing:
Friday, October 26, 4:00-6:00 PM
Sunday, October 28, 4:00-6:00 PM
