A new season of Flash Forward has begun! The Flash Forward 2013 Group Show marked the launch of its ninth anniversary tour with an exciting debut in Toronto at the Neubacher Shor Contemporary Gallery on Queen St West.
The Flash Forward 2013 Group Show premiered in our home city on October 10th with an Opening Night Celebration. Over 400 guests from local and international artistic communities were in attendance, along with sponsors, supporters, and general arts enthusiasts.
It was a lively evening of art, wine and conversation, made extra special by the gourmet catering of Eatertainment. You know it’s a good party when both CTV and Global News show up to capture the scene live!
This year’s Group Show features a cross-section of compelling work from the hottest new art stars in Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. All artists are featured in an Exhibition Catalogue which has become a highly anticipated industry release each year.
This year also marked the first chapter of the Flash Forward Emerging Artists Incubator Program. Through this new project, high school students are engaged and encouraged to showcase their early interest in art and photography. Students from the Etobicoke School of the Arts were featured in the annual Flash Forward Exhibition Catalogue and celebrated with a special afternoon reception for artists, parents and teachers.
The Flash Forward program would not be possible without the steadfast and generous support of our Presenting Sponsor TD Bank Group, as well as the The W. Garfield Weston Foundation. We also send our sincere gratitude to the artists who enter the program each year and travel from far and wide to attend special evenings like this!
Lastly, we’d like to send a huge thank you to our staff including the always fun TD Boys and the phenomenal team of Interns who helped install, curate and host this year’s exhibition. Without your support, nothing is possible!

We look forward to seeing many of you on our next Flash Forward stop in London, UK! The travelling exhibition will run from October 28 – November 9, 2013 at Photofusion, with a special Closing Night reception on November 7.
