EXHIBITIONSSince 2004, Magic Pony has exhibited emerging Canadian creators and introduced Toronto to a range of internationally renowned artists. With a unique space that mixed both retail and art, we provided artists with opportunities to exhibit both artwork and multiples in an original and dynamic exhibition setting.
EVENTSMagic Pony has an extensive history of conceiving and executing customized special events. From book launches to dance parties, and everything in between, we have partnered with celebrated artists, designers, and creators to produce memorable and unique experiences.
WORKSHOPS + LECTURESEncouranging creativity from within, we've produced a diverse range of interactive and engaging workshops, art classes, and programs. Aficionados of art and design, Magic Pony’s co-owners have also been invited as guest speakers to share their entrepreneurial experiences and creative spirit.
PROJECTS + COLLABORATIONSSince Magic Pony’s inception, we have been involved in numerous collaborative projects and initiatives, incorporating an international network of creative innovators, dynamic spaces, and like-minded creators. Among other projects, Magic Pony has produced several artist publications in tandem with gallery exhibitions.
