The Toronto Biennial of Art marks the closing of its 2022 edition with a colourful large-scale lakeside smoke sculpture and a family-friendly barbecue.

Smoke Sculpture – “A Tribute to Toronto” — June 4, 7:00pm at Sugar Beach
This one-of-a-kind site-specific work by artist Judy Chicago will be visible from the shore of Lake Ontario. A series of environmentally safe, non-toxic coloured smokes are released from a barge. For this one-time performance, the public can gather at the waterfront to see the lake and sky transformed. DJ, food and drink venues open at 7:00pm and the performance begins at dusk.

Closing BBQ — June 5, 12:00-5:00pm at Small Arms Inspection Building
Enjoy great food and an array of activities including storytelling tours of the exhibition at the Small Arms Inspection Building, interactive walks focusing on the building’s history and the Indigenous history of its grounds, as well as pop-up stations with hands-on, intergenerational art-making workshops.
