Introducing the Wavelength Pop Up Gallery!!

Wavelength Pop-Up Gallery
January 22 to February 15, 2015
Huntclub Studios, 709 College St.

Wavelength takes over emerging artist gallery Huntclub Studios from January 22 to February 15, 2015 to create the Wavelength Pop-Up Gallery, a temporary community hub for independent music and arts in Toronto. Located on College Street in Little Italy, this unique storefront space is a blink-if-you-miss-it venue, marrying DIY punk spirit with entrepreneurial, curatorial flair at this most frigid time of year. It hosts a “Wavelength: Past, Present and Future” art exhibition featuring archival posters, concert photography and curated installations, as well as a free Sunday afternoon Wavelength Talk Series including artist workshops and panel discussions, and a Pop-Up Show Series of intimate multi-media concerts and events. All this activity will warm up the Toronto music scene for Wavelength Music Festival 15, the weekend-long bonanza taking place February 13-15.

The Pop-Up Gallery opens on January 22 with a free launch party featuring Wavelength alumni Petra Glynt and Zoo Owl.


January 22 to February 15
Huntclub Studios, 709 College St.
