Art Metropole began in the 1970s as an informal agency of Torontonian and NSCAD-affiliated artists. It evolved into a unique Toronto artist-run centre, collecting and distributing alternative artworks that bypassed the art market with accessibly-priced artists’ “multiples” such as audio recordings, videos, bookworks and postcards. Selected from the archival collection recently acquired by the National Gallery, Top 100 highlights 160 works by 100 international artists, dating from the 1970s to the present, in an installation that merges boutique and archival display styles. Among the artists represented are Eleanor Antin, David Askevold, Joseph Beuys, Dara Birnbaum, Kate Craig, General Idea, George Maciunas, N.E. Thing and Rosemary Trockel.
