Grieving Empire. Curated by Rachel Gorman.
Grieving Empire features six artists – Khadija Baker, Livia Daza-Paris, Michael Greyeyes, John Halaka, Siamak Haseli, Gita Hashemi – whose works reveal the violence of the settler colonial state, its imperialist adventures, and its proxy wars. The artists anchor their work in their bodies, on the land, and in unfolding transit and return. The works in this show reject aesthetics of postcolonial catharsis, in which we are asked to pity, and then purge our knowledge of imperialism's victims. Rather, these works animate aesthetics of revolutionary grieving, which demand that we "apprehend the policies creating unlivable, ungrievable conditions." (Byrd, 2011, 38). The works include animation for a child injured in the Syrian war created from the artist's cut hair (Khadija Baker); dance and ritual on the land where the artist's father was executed in 1960s Venezuela by state agents trained at the US School of the Americas (Livia Daza-Paris); site-specific dance moving through the past and present terror of Canadian residential schools (Michael Greyeyes); testimony of a Palestinian woman recounting the 1982 disappearance of her sons during the time of the Sabra and Shatila massacre (John Halaka); a child's nightmare of the Iraq war (Siamak Haseli); and postcards inscribing past and present exile sent from the artist's journey along the Balkan refugee trail (Gita Hashemi).

The AGO Art Rental & Sales proudly presents the work of Zan Rococo in FRANK's Art Social viewing lounge. Rococo is an artist's artist. Never one to give away too much about her pieces, she seeks to make the viewer the subject of her work by putting them in the position to interpret and decipher her symbols and semiotics. Even her titles are obscure, challenging the viewer to put their own experiences and histories into the story. [...] Rococo uses a variety of mediums and tools in her pieces, including layered and sanded latex paint which creates a smooth finish, erasing any hint of canvas beneath. As a means of integrating graffiti-style into her work, she even uses tagging markers, which leave a unique finish and colour. Her experimental methods don't stop here: she also uses trowels and traditional Chinese calligraphy ink throughout her work ... more

at Jackman Humanities Institute, 170 St. George Street, 10th Floor, University of Toronto. FREE. Mon-Fri 9am-5pm: All This Time.
Curated by Jaclyn Quaresma.
Organized for the Jackman Humanities Institute's 2016-17 research theme, Time, Rhythm and Pace, the exhibition All This Time brings together geologic samples and texts alongside artworks in diverse media by Carl Beam, Eric Cameron, Kelly Jazvac, Faith La Rocque, Micah Lexier, Ken Nicol, Tamiko Thiel, to consider multiple ways of thinking about and representing time. [...]. Including Canadian and international artists of diverse generations and cultural backgrounds, the exhibition tends to the marks and measures that pace the human experience of time, from the brevity of a minute to the passage of a day, from the duration of centuries to millennia, and from the languid rhythm of geologic, deep time to a possible future. It asks "How do we account for time?"

Leopold Plotek: No Work, Nor Device, Nor Knowledge, Nor Wisdom.
Guest curator: E. C. Woodley.

Conceived as Leopold Plotek's first survey, this exhibition spans five decades, including the debut of his most recent paintings alongside pivotal earlier canvases that establish the artist's formal investigations and his intellectual rapport with Sigmund Freud, Melanie Klein and Adrian Stokes.

Born in 1948 in Moscow to Jewish parents, Plotek later moved to Warsaw with his father who became an economic attaché to the Polish Embassy in Moscow during the late Stalinist period. Living and working in Montreal since 1960, he has created a substantial body of work that has been extensively exhibited and collected, carving an essential place in Quebec's artistic history. Initially a protégé of prominent Plasticien artist Yves Gaucher, Plotek became a teacher and major influence himself, forming a new generation of artists who are at the forefront of Canadian painting today, including Allison Katz, Etienne Zack, Martin Golland and Ben Klein.

While staging a picture of Plotek's evolving subject matter and existential world-view, this exhibition foregrounds his drive to forge a studio production of unique works. The discordance of form and genre that Plotek favours and explores invests his oeuvre with a depth and complexity that defies both modernist traditions and contemporary art market pressures.

Plotek's radical, immersive works mine the territories of memory and experience, the subconscious and the intellect, the abstract and the figurative. Positioning pictorial space as a vehicle for both narrative content and emotional exploration, Plotek re-imagines architecture and objects, artists, philosophers and gods, displacing the cultural pantheon onto precarious grounds and offering poignant commentary on the current state of Western civilization, its enduring folly and persistently dark psyche.

Alongside this artistic act of remembrance, a selection of prints from the Ryerson Image Centre's Black Star Collection of photojournalism provides historical context for the notorious bombing, recounting the political and social turmoil that placed this U.S. city, and the burgeoning American Civil Rights Movement, in the international media spotlight during the months leading up to the explosion.

Geoffrey James: Canadian Photographs.
For the past six years Geoffrey James, one of Canada's pre-eminent photographers, has travelled the country confronting the many realities of Canadian life. Canada is glimpsed from a train window, seen at a demolition derby, or a high-school prom. The photographs bear witness to Canada's past as a dominion while also looking at the sometimes provisional way the future is being built. James's colour photographs display an uncanny wit that isolates innocent moments and seemingly banal locations, and speak volumes about our nation's precarious identity.

Brendan Fernandes: Lost Bodies.
Lost Bodies brings a world-renowned Canadian artist's work into dialogue with two of the country's most distinctive collections of African art: the Justin and Elisabeth Lang Collection of African Art at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre in Kingston, Ontario and the collection of the Textile Museum of Canada. Brendan Fernandes offers multiple points of connection that draw upon traditional African textiles, costume and masks, gestures of Western ballet, and elegant, poetic dance choreographies within the museum vault, filmed in the archive of the Agnes Etherington Art Centre.
With this fresh approach to re-presenting African artifacts in formal museum displays, Fernandes reconsiders museum conventions in a set of new video, print and sculptural interventions. The artist's montage of Western classical dance and the collected object is concentrated around precise body language that raises questions about visual and discursive practices that shape understandings of African art within public collections.
On Fri 11 Nov, 7:30pm, in conjunction with the opening reception and catalogue launch, Brendan Fernandes will present a special performance of In Touch, danced by Lua Shayenne within the spaces of the exhibition.
This project is made possible by the Justin and Elisabeth Lang Foundation Fund and George Taylor Richardson Memorial Fund, Queen's University. The exhibition is curated by Sunny Kerr, and has been developed in partnership with the Textile Museum of Canada.

And introducing Juan Meija. The sculptures shown here furnish valuable elements of minimalist connotation. On the emphases of securing a compositional balance, we find the limits of the pictorial language and the architectonic design. After the research in "Origami", with the totems and folded pieces in iron, utilizing paper in "Light Boxes" first and a sheet of poly vinyl in "Subtle Spaces", cuts and folds are implemented to cause alternating light and shadow effects, defining immaterial spaces that are always marked by the rigor of order and geometry. These pieces are polymorphic structures that are originated from intentional lines, accents, rhythms and games of full and empty spaces on the original flat surface. They then become three-dimensional sculptural objects of grand finesse ... more

Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival. Daniella Zalcman: Signs of Your Identity. In the 1840s, the Canadian government created a network of Indian Residential Schools that were meant to assimilate young indigenous students into western Canadian culture. Indian agents would take children as young as two or three from their homes and send them to church-run boarding schools where they were punished for speaking their native languages or observing any indigenous traditions, routinely sexually and physically assaulted, and in some extreme instances subjected to medical experimentation and sterilization. The last residential school closed in 1996. The Canadian government issued its first formal apology in 2008. These multiple-exposure portraits show survivors who are still fighting to overcome the memories of their residential school experiences. These individuals are reflected in the sites where those schools once stood, in the government documents that enforced strategic assimilation, in the places where today, First Nations people now struggle to access services that should be available to all Canadians. These are the echoes of trauma that remain even as the healing process begins ... more

Mar 2-Apr 16, 2017 | opening reception Thur 2 Mar, 6-9pm; artist talk by Ken Lum at 7pm (FREE bus departs 6pm from Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen Street West, Toronto, returns 8:30pm):
Ken Lum: A Matter of Life and Death brings together three bodies of work by internationally established Canadian artist Ken Lum that take up the question of truth in representation, in forms that can be considered a kind of portraiture. The text-based paintings, prints, and sculptures in this exhibition reference obituaries and memorial busts – ways in which we recount, document and celebrate a life lived, but which are only produced and published upon its end. Often a simple recounting of dates, activities and people, obituaries and memorials invite questions: Is this how the deceased would have described themselves? Is this a true accounting of their stories? The viewer is invited to investigate the intersection of the fictive and the biographical, and what constitutes a representation of a life / death, through Lum's signature sly sense of humour. | Nam Phi Dang: Somewhere Else. XIT-RM Project Space. Somewhere Else is a photo essay resulting from Nam Phi Dang's recent trip to Vietnam, the country from which his parents fled years ago. With this series of dream-like yet documentary images, Dang confronts tensions felt by those raised in one country but with cultural ties to another, and explores the disconnect between the perception and reality of ideas of heritage and homeland. | Art of Words. Words of Art. Selected works from the AGM's Permanent Art Collection and the 5th Annual Ink Movement Mississauga Youth Anthology. Four participants from this year's Anthology competition were asked to engage with the AGM's collection and select a work that best reflected or spoke to their submitted piece of poetry or prose. The visual and verbal dialogues created by the four youth participants – Jordan Currie, Diya Jhuti, Abirami Sudharshan and Sonya Zhang – in this exhibition of selected PAC works by Bobs Cogill Haworth, Kim Adams, Carol Martyn and Paul Fournier, reveal that the creative mind has no limits in the connections it can make ... more

A Foundation for Fifty Years: McMichael Masterworks. Organized by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. Curated by Sarah Stanners. The McMichael owes its existence and collection to the generosity of donors.

Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven: Destinations. Organized by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. Curated by Chris Finn. Many of the wilderness landscapes depicted in artworks by Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven were interpretations serving as symbols or metaphors of place. However, writers who positioned and promoted Thomson's and the Group of Seven's work within a geographical and Canadian nation-building narrative, created a sense of authenticity while aligning their imagery with political as well as commercial interests. This exhibition presents a selection of the artists' paintings and prints depicting their renderings of the "North", including masterworks such as Mount Robson by Lawren Harris, and Byng Inlet, Georgian Bay by Tom Thomson ... more

Once Upon a Time, Deep in the Dark Forest. Organized by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. Curator: Sharona Adamowicz-Clements.

Paul Fournier: Worlds of Wonder. Launching the Varley Art Gallery's 2017 season is a solo exhibition by Markham-based painter Paul Fournier. With a career spanning more than 50 years, Fournier's creative production has evolved through a careful balance of spontaneity and intuition. Through expansive abstracted compositions, the artist uses painterly strokes and gestures as a means of expressing his personal observations of the natural world. These dramatic and colourful works reveal lush tropical greenery, underwater geological formations and distant celestial phenomena. Ultimately, they are a testament to Fournier's decade-long experimentation of his medium and his ongoing quest to depict the poetic and spiritual dimensions of nature.
Present | Perfect | Continuous. To celebrate the Varley Art Gallery's 20th anniversary, a year-long rotation of our most popular works by F. H. Varley is on view in the Collections Gallery. Both the exhibition and accompanying publication highlight 20 years of acquisitions, acknowledge the role of the Varley-McKay Art Foundation in the development of the collection, and many donors who have contributed to its growth. Grammatically, the "present perfect continuous" is used with actions that began in the past but that are still continuing in the present. Symbolically, it implies the passing of time, something that is not fixed but always evolving. In this view, selected interventions by contemporary artists will bring new insights to the study of F. H. Varley's work from our collection.
Susana Reisman: Standardizing Nature. Paired with F. H. Varley's "Second Growth, Lynn Peak" (c. 1932-1936), Susana Reisman's photographic series Standardizing Nature explores the transformation of trees into building materials used in the construction industry. With this work, Reisman encourages us to question and understand the reasoning and decision-making behind the "shape" of things. Specifically, she is concerned for the natural resources we harness from the earth and the form, function, and role they play in our everyday lives ... more

Christopher Reid Flock: Integration / Disintegration. As an experimental ceramic artist, Christopher Reid Flock is profoundly influenced by the significant time that he spent in Japan and the mentorship that he received from some of Canada's most respected potters.

Although this ambitious exhibition includes some works from his earlier career, it features more prominently his large-scale, installation-based works that whimsically "play" with notions of function while merging rapid prototyping with classical clay process. Companion exhibition: works by Flock's mentors Bruce Cochrane, Diane Nasr and Kayo O'Young ... more

Renann Isaacs Contemporary Art is a beautiful gallery space in the heart of downtown Guelph that has rapidly become a destination for individuals and groups who appreciate and collect fine art. The gallery specializes in a variety of media including paintings, works on paper, jewellery, metal sculpture and glass by some of Canada's finest nationally and internationally recognized artists.
Isaacs has lived in both Toronto and Montreal, worked in the field of Inuit art for 12 years, published an art & gallery guide, and worked as a fundraiser for several arts events and organizations. Like her father, Av Isaacs (one of the first gallery owners in Canada to exhibit contemporary art), she's made it her goal to expose people to art and help advise them about what makes it important. As a curator, as well as an art consultant, Isaacs continues to team up with commercial and public galleries to place important works by emerging, mid-career, established and senior artists in private and corporate collections throughout the region and beyond.
Renann Isaacs Contemporary Art is ideally situated in a city that boasts critically acclaimed music festivals, dance companies, design and illustration houses, artist studios, award-winning restaurants, as well as the Art Gallery of Guelph and the University of Guelph which currently has one of the finest specialized studio art programs and MFAs in the country.

Jan 15-May 14, 2017 | artist talks Sun 15 Jan, 1pm, followed by opening reception 2-5pm:
Michael Markowsky: The Persistence of Doubt. Using documents that have been in the Tom Thomson Art Gallery's care for several decades and never yet released to the public, Vancouver artist Michael Markowsky presents a series of sculptures, drawings, and paintings that investigate the facts and theories surrounding the mystery of Tom Thomson's death. The Persistence of Doubt explores untold stories and possibilities inviting the viewer into a world of discovery about the mythic man and artistic maverick, Tom Thomson. Curated by Heather McLeese.
Clare Langan: The Winter of 13 Storms. Dublin artist Clare Langan presents film and video works created in the last two years. Her poetically evocative films have been described as being a contemporary meditation on the Romantic Landscape in its entire beautiful, haunting and melancholic splendor, as she takes us on a journey through multiple geographical locations both real and constructed, allowing us access to dreamlike visions of the potential chaos that exists in nature and in our cinematic memories. Curated by Virginia Eichhorn.
Centennial Spirit. This selection of works from the Gallery's Collection reflects the diversity of visual arts in Canada during the 1960s, the time when the Tom Thomson Art Gallery was built. This was a decade of upheavals and change in Canadian society, and Canadians were thinking about life and art in new and different ways. Curated by David Huff ... more

EDUCATION & PUBLIC PROGRAMS.
The Art Gallery of Mississauga's Education and Programming philosophy is built upon three principles: ENGAGE, THINK, and INSPIRE. These principles, combined with Creativity and Imagination, reflect our high level of compassion and appreciation for the artist process, provide the highest quality introduction to critical thinking and instruction – for all ages. The AGM is a thinking space to engage with art!

Education Philosophy.
The AGM's education and engagement projects and programming aim to contemplate, represent and interact with the vibrant and layered lived experiences of the city – its human geography. [...].

The AGM is a thinking space to engage with art!

Education Philosophy.
The AGM's education and engagement projects and programming aim to contemplate, represent and interact with the vibrant and layered lived experiences of the city – its human geography. As the AGM presents high-calibre exhibitions, it simultaneously recognizes a wide range in the public's visual literacy and art viewing habits and is committed to facilitating equitable platforms that will allow for the full appreciation of contemporary artistic practice by all residents. The Gallery encourages and values difference and the nuances of experience in the pursuit of learning, critical thinking and engagement.

Engagement.
The AGM considers art as an evolving platform for dialogue on contemporary culture and presents exhibitons and programming centred on discussions relevant to its constituents. Informed by these views, the AGM aims to demystify contemporary art as valuable only in the institutional context and to integrate visual arts experiences into the daily life of Mississauga residents. Contemporary art knowledge and "art world savvy" as a final index of "experience" is not required at the AGM – rather, the Gallery welcomes multiple views, experiences and backgrounds to the evolving dialogue on art.

POWER KIDS. Tour the gallery and engage in an art activity inspired by the exhibitions in these FREE art workshops for children ages 7-12. Contact powerkids@thepowerplant.org or 416 973 4949 to register.
26 Mar: Combined Canvases. Latifa Echakhch has created a picturesque sky that has partially crumbled onto the floor of the gallery. The illusion of the sky is broken and mixes with the broken surface of the wall. Taking cues from her fresco painting, participants will create two original paintings in two different styles. Then, we will weave together the pair of paintings, creating an illusion of transformation from one painting to the other and from realistic to abstract. http://bit.ly/2jgW4bX.
2 Apr: Filmmaking by Hand. Jonathas de Andrade, like many other contemporary artists, creates films in the 16mm, a format which dates back to the 1920s! In this workshop, participants will discuss the contemporary use of older media. We will then explore an experimental filmmaking technique, altering 16mm film in any way we can imagine: marking, painting, drawing, scratching and more. At the end of the program, our films will be screened on a 16mm projector. http://bit.ly/2mxpNit ... more

30 Apr: Reduce, Reuse, and Redesign. Kapwani Kiwanga's exhibition highlights how urban spaces are designed to encourage or discourage certain behaviours. We will see evidence of this in Jonathas de Andrade's art as well. In touring both exhibitions, we will discuss how future architecture and design might affect us in positive ways, collectively imagining a city that encourages greener behaviours. Inventing our own imaginative architecture, we will combine our individual ideas to build a small-scale green city. http://bit.ly/2mxdOkO.
7 May: Family Heirlooms. Maria Hupfield's exhibition includes an oil painting by her late mother of a memory that her family holds dear. This landscape painting has inspired the performance and videos that Hupfield has created for this exhibition. We will discover that artwork with personal subject matter is often the most powerful and precious. In this workshop, we will draw upon this personal connection as each child and their parent(s) or guardian(s) create a collaborative painted family heirloom preserving a memory of togetherness for all time. http://bit.ly/2m6yncw.

Frida Kahlo: An Illustrated Life. At Joseph D. Carrier Art Gallery, 901 Lawrence Avenue West, Toronto.
Famed Mexican artist Frida Kahlo created some of the most iconic and challenging images of the 20th century. Her beautiful and evocative self-portraits have captivated the art world, with fans like Madonna singing her praises. Now, more than 60 years after her death, Toronto artist Franco De Simone reimagines some of Kahlo's most famous – and infamous – works using still photography and mixed-media.
From The Broken Column to Cropped Hair, De Simone's photographs evoke a feeling of having captured Frida during the creation of her own self-portraits... a stolen snapshot taken just as the final brush stroke was completed.
An Illustrated Life features 27 works, a collection reflecting the finest works of the woman whose vibrant and tragic life continues to resonate both within her beloved Mexico and the rest of the world.
Don't miss this unique opportunity to see these photographic interpretations of Frida Kahlo's rich, iconic works. A brief promotional video here: ww.youtube.com/watch?v=OtmQp7mk8PE&feature=youtu.be. www.francodesimone.com.

Book launch and reception of Sensenomake Circus: a collaboration in mixed media. Sensenomake Circus chronicles a 3-year creative journey completed by visual artists Phyllis Kirk and Bronna Fenichel from 1987-1990. A true collaboration in every sense of the word from concept to execution. Sensenomake Circus satirizes western values using the circus as a metaphor with black and white performance artists juxtaposed on layers of brilliantly colored mixed media backgrounds. The unbounded energy of the circus-based alternative worlds explodes past the confines of the canvas and the addition of unusual materials and text further heightens the satirical expression ... more

NUBARR & PAGINTON: Painting Canada. A selection of oils, acrylics and watercolours by Nubarr and George Paginton, featuring Canadian landscapes, seascapes and impressionistic abstracts. At Art Square Gallery, 334 Dundas Street West, Toronto ON.
Tony Paginton and Shahe Sabag are presenting the works of their fathers, George Paginton (1901-1988) and Noubar Sabag (1920-2006). Both fathers were immigrants from very different backgrounds; one from England and the other an Armenian from Syria. Though the two artists did not know each other, their sons met in Canada and are both immensely proud of what their fathers achieved as lifelong active painters despite their challenging beginnings. After their settlement in their adopted home, Nubarr and George fell in love with the Canadian landscape and spent a lifetime expressing it in their respective styles.
