From January 16-23, London-based gallery Hollybush Gardens took part in Villa Toronto, an event that brought local and international art galleries together in the Great Hall of Union Station in Toronto. By exhibiting art in an active public space, Villa Toronto aimed to connect art, artists and galleries from across the world with the nearly 200 000 commuters that passed through the terminal each day. In collaboration with the British Council and Villa Toronto, Hollybush Gardens presented artist Reto Pulfer’s installation, which was the stage for a food-based performance during the opening. On January 20, the artist presented a talk on the relevance of participatory food-based art practices, on the food-to-table and forest-to-table movement with wild forager Deidre Fraser, and Arlene Stein, founder of the Terroir Symposium.
