“We chose the Globe and Mail Centre as our venue as it has one of the best views in the city. You can turn off the lights and let the cityscape do all the work. We’ve hosted our Face to Face event at this venue for three consecutive years, and appreciate how easy the process is each year so that we can focus on delivering an exclusive evening for our contemporary art patrons. The event welcomes around 170 guests, and we’re able to create intimate moments over dinner with a full room. We look forward to continuing to work with the Globe and Mail Centre to continue to deliver this special evening offering our patrons a chance to meet face to face with artists, while supporting the gallery’s programming and initiatives."
