Wil Aballe discusses his experience as an art dealer.
Wil Aballe has exhibited a series of monthly shows in his gallery called Wil Aballe Art Projects | WAAP. It has been since recognized as a great example of removing the barriers between art and everyday life. Since its first exhibition with 2013 RBC finalist Sean Weisgerber, WAAP has put on exhibitions subverting the large, public and heroic modes of art presentation, and has published affordable art editions by artists as varied as Marina Roy, Babak Golkar, Aurel Schmidt, Scott Massey, Jeff Ladouceur and Evann Siebens. Showcasing painting and photography but also lesser explored video and performance, WAAP was named by Blouin ArtInfo magazine last year as one of the top emerging commercial galleries in Canada. During Art Toronto 2013, Wil participated in a panel discussion entitled “The Next Generation in Canadian Art”.
