Rogue Wave 2010
will be taking place this year from September 11 to November 6.


2010 marks the eighth ROGUE WAVE exhibition on the Toronto Islands. ROGUE WAVE was founded by four Island residents in the spring of 1998. Before that time ‘rogue’ art installations had appeared on the Island only to be removed by Parks Department staff. In response to this, knowing that artists wanted to install works outdoors on the Island and with a community with an usually large number of visual artists, the ROGUE WAVE organization was formed to create exhibitions of sculpture and installation art on the Toronto Islands. Since then, we have received funding support from the Toronto Arts Council and have organized seven exhibitions. We have attracted City-based artists and beyond to participate as well as tenants of Artscape Gibraltar Point. The exhibition also features performances in the visual and performing arts.

ROGUE artists range in experience from professional artists with national reputations, and artists working outside their traditional media to emerging artists and new collaborations. All works must be safe for human interaction, environmentally appropriate, and able to withstand the elements for the duration of the exhibition.

Applications for Rogue Wave 2010 are due on August 1, 2010, and application forms are available here.

We are looking forward to an outstanding ROGUE WAVE 2010!
