About Soho Arthouse

Named as one of the best contemporary art galleries in NYC, SOHO ARTHOUSE is a multi-purpose event space, art gallery and theater. Centrally located in an iconic NYC neighborhood, the gallery is the “heartchild” of John Ordover, son of the late lawyer Jerry Ordover, a leading figure in the Modern Art community. Jerry’s clients over the years included artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Frank Stella, Richard Serra, Nam Jun Paik and preeminent gallery owner Leo Castelli. “Growing up around the brilliant, spontaneous and off-beat crowd my father introduced me to,” Ordover said, “that creative energy drove my work as a writer and editor; opening a gallery is simply coming full circle.”

About the Holcim Gallery

A beautiful gallery space with clean lines and multiple viewing angles, the Holcim Gallery is inspired by the surrounding natural wonder of the Niagara Escarpment. Housed in the remarkable new Milton Centre for the Arts building near Toronto, the gallery draws crowds from the theatre, workshops and regional library as part of the arts complex. It has become a must visit space for arts patrons from the greater Toronto area. The MPA is thrilled to have been invited back following the success of our 2013 exhibits.
