TH&B UNITED features 16 artist projects by 22 artists located on the second and third floors of The Cotton Factory at 270 Sherman Avenue North, a mixed-use industrial arts and heritage complex. Building on the success of previous projects TH&B (2008) and TH&B2 (2012), TH&B UNITED features sculpture, installation, audio, video and performative projects by emerging and established artists with ties to Hamilton, Toronto, Buffalo, and the Rust Belt region.
TH&B was the common name of the former Toronto, Hamilton & Buffalo railway (1895-1987) that crossed the Niagara Peninsula from Lake Ontario to Lake Erie. In 2008, Hamilton artists Simon Frank, Dave Hind, Ivan Jurakic and Tor Lukasik-Foss adopted the name as a moniker for their ongoing collaborative site-responsive installations and projects.
TH&B UNITED acknowledges the generous support of their project partners: The Cotton Factory at 270 Sherman Avenue North, Ontario Arts Council, Art Gallery of Hamilton, Hamilton/Burlington Society of Architects, Ontario Association of Architects, Hamilton Arts Council, Digital Canaries, James Neil Consulting, RM Signs.
