#Hashtag Gallery was opened in April of 2012 with a mandate to bring the brightest artistic talent in Toronto together with established artists from a variety of backgrounds to showcase a carefully curated roster of talent on both the critical and commercial contemporary arts stage. The artists we select to represent are carefully chosen for their technique and artistic ability and represent what we believe to be the next generation of successful Canadian artists across a range of media and disciplines.
What’s in a name? At #Hashtag, we want to acknowledge the role that the internet and social media play in all our lives – in the way we stay connected, discover new ideas and interact with creativity. We want to be revolutionary by going back to basics – giving these living, online communities a touchstone in the Toronto contemporary art world, and in turn providing our roster of exceptionally talented artists professional representation within a social, supportive, art conscious community. Hashtag represents the energy of the online revolution, its creative potential, and provides a social and cultural hub for the discovery of lively and engaging fine art. #THANKSFORVISITINGUS
