More than 200 local artists, many of them quite acclaimed, have penned an open letter to the people behind what they’re calling an “ugly” and “reckless” art exhibit in downtown Toronto.

The Invitational, which ran from October 25 – 28, was billed as a brand new contemporary art exhibition revolving around the human figure and how we make sense of the world today.

Hosted at the newly- (and kind of hideously-) remodeled 346 Spadina Avenue, home of what used to be the Bright Pearl dim sum restaurant, The Invitational brought together works from roughly 25 internationally recognized artists (with a special spotlight on those from New York and Toronto).

The event was free and open to the public, but a coalition of local artists and organizations say that something sneaky was going on in terms of how the project was staged.
