Therme Art is the cultural incubator of Therme Group. Responsible for outreach to creative communities, it curates forums between culture, science and society and works with internationally renowned artists and architects, as well as emerging talents.
• Therme Art commissions and develops site-specific artistic projects that challenge the limitations of conventional exhibition spaces and redefine contemporary art viewing.
• Therme Art curates year-round programming for the Therme Group sites.
• It also curates a year-round programme of events including the Wellbeing Culture Forum, a series of discussions gathering experts from diverse fields, to realise a vision of the city and its cultural activity in symbiosis with the natural world.
Therme Art will work at Therme Canada | Ontario Place to showcase site-specific projects that represent and capture the essence of Toronto and Ontario.
• Entrance Pavilion: Will provide an indoor venue for Therme Art so that visitors are welcomed to the site by beautiful and thought-provoking art.
• Public Spaces: The planned outdoor spaces surrounding the facility will house permanent art installations and temporary shows that are open to the public.
