Published May 10, 2016Having already announced its seventh edition late last month, Montreal's Chromatic festival will bring its merger of music and visual art to Toronto at the end of May as part of a pop-up exhibition.
The debut Toronto event will take place on May 27 and 28, bringing new media, digital art, painting, video projection, street art, music and more to Rally Ossington, a concept gallery in Toronto's West Queen West neighbourhood that hosts creative house Hermann & Audrey.
The pop-up exhibit will showcase the work of more than 30 artists from Toronto, Montreal and around the world, on display during both day and night environments. While Chromatic Day (May 28 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.) provides a relaxed, family-friendly atmosphere, Chromatic Night (May 27 from 7:30 p.m. to 2 a.m.) is billed as the ultimate party for art and music enthusiasts, featuring live performances from Montreal DJs Tibe and Charles Cozy.
"We're delighted to partner up with Hermann & Audrey as co-producers to showcase some of the best rising artists of Montreal and Toronto," said Chromatic managing director Marie-Pier Tessier de L'Étoile in a statement. "This exhibition will be the turning point in creating a long-lasting relationship between both burgeoning art scenes."
Tickets for the Chromatic Night event cost $10 in advance and $15 at the door, while Chromatic Day tickets can be purchased at the door for $5, remaining free to children ages 12 and under.
Advance tickets and further information on the Toronto edition of Chromatic can soon be found through the festival website here.
As for the main Montreal event, Chromatic will take place May 19 to 22 in Montreal's Old Port.
