About the Exhibition
ALL CITY SHINE is a BIPOC Street Art Exhibition. From a massive 360 ft. mural to surrounding architecture, to digital works, artist interviews and multidisciplinary pieces, it uses public spaces as a canvas of expression for Black, Latinx, Indigenous, Asian and BIPOC artists to shine individually and collectively. Bringing together over 25 BIPOC artists and creators from all across the city who contributed to the Street Art movement of Toronto over the past decades, the Exhibition presents a strong statement acknowledging the struggles that people of color face in art communities. A vibrant approach to combat systemic issues and look to the future with hope while acknowledging the importance of the past and creating legacy.
