Looking Forward To: Radiant Dark at Commerce Court

One event I'm looking forward to this month is Radiant Dark, a themed show of contemporary design objects that runs from January 21 to 24. The show, which I think is in its third incarnation this year, is organized by the super CanCon design store MADE.

One thing that will make this edition of Radiant Dark particularly interesting is its move from a trendy Queen West location to the suit-and-tie-land of Commerce Court, located in Toronto's financial district. Appropriately, MADE has themed the show this year on "Assets & Values."

Besides the promise of great objects, I'm really curious to see how the show curators will manage the exhibition design in this difficult space. I'm also excited that the location of this show will bring a promising art and design show to audiences who don't usually seek it out. You can go here to RSVP for the opening night reception on January 20 and find out more about the program, which includes designer talks on January 24.
