The IFOA (International Festivals of Authors) presents the finest international novelists, poets, playwrights, short story writers and biographers, and provides Canadian writers with an internationally recognised forum in which to present their work.
This year's 2016 festival poster art is designed by none other than acclaimed Canadian cartoonist Seth! You can find more of Seth's work on IFOA postcards, programs, and their website.
Seth will also be curating the "Five Ways" exhibit in the Harbourfront Centre’s Artport Gallery. The exhibition features the works of Nina Bunjevac, Michael Deforge, Nick Drnaso, Jon McNaught, and Chris Oliveros all of whom will be participating in the festival this year. The Five Ways exhibition explores the work of five different artists and their unique aesthetics and methods. The opening reception will take place on Friday, September 23 from 6–10pm. The event is free and open to the public.
