Toronto: Tributes + Tributaries, 1971-1989.
Curated by Wanda Nanibush, AGO's Assistant Curator, Canadian and Indigenous Art.
Exploring the experimental energy of an era, Toronto: Tributes + Tributaries, 1971-1989 brings together more than 100 works by 65 artists and collectives to highlight an innovative period in Toronto art history. Amidst the social and political upheavals of their time, the generation of artists that emerged in Toronto during the 1970s and 1980s pushed the boundaries of conventional painting, sculpture and photography, exploring new ways of art making, including video, installation and performance.
Intended as an evolving display, many of the works in the exhibition were rotated in January 2017.

Francis Alÿs: A Story of Negotiation.
Curated by Mexican curator and historian Cuauhtémoc Medina, and coordinated at the AGO by Kitty Scott, Carol and Morton Rapp Curator, Modern & Contemporary Art.
Creating art that is equal parts poetic, political, beautiful and absurd, Francis Alÿs (Belgian, born 1959) engages directly with urgent social issues, from the war in Afghanistan to border politics around the world. Organized in conjunction with the Museo Tamayo in Mexico City and making its only Canadian stop in Toronto, A Story of Negotiation surveys some of Alÿs's most significant projects of the last two decades.

Curated by Kenneth Brummel, AGO's Assistant Curator, Modern Art.
Sir Anthony Caro (British, 1924-2013) revolutionized the medium of sculpture in the 1960s when he moved away from making elaborately modelled, figurative works cast in bronze, instead creating large, abstract assemblages out of prefabricated steel and aluminum elements that he installed directly on the ground. Anthony Caro: Sculpture Laid Bare honours the legacy of this titan of modernist sculpture with four of his late works.

Currently on view at FRANK social space, through AGO Art Rental + Sales and courtesy of Art Works Consulting: Sarah Letovsky – a series of paintings, a continuation from her first solo exhibition, GIRLS, GIRLS, GIRLS. Sarah Letovsky focuses on the expressive nature of paint to explore ideas of subjectivity, tension, and hidden thought and feeling. Letovsky uses the painting process to create a force of opposites; her brushstrokes are at once gestural and deliberate, spontaneous and confined, bringing the figure forward with an empathetic gaze and pushing it back into abstraction with explosive colour, flat space, and restrained texture ... 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?"

Jaan Poldaas: 2016.
Birch Contemporary is delighted to announce a solo exhibition of new conceptually-based, hard-edge abstract paintings by Canadian artist Jaan Poldaas, his first exhibition since 2013. This new exhibition includes a selection of works in two different scales: 121.2 x 121.2cm and 60.1 x 60.1cm.
"The grids Poldaas has created for his most recent paintings are 18 by 18 units, with no lines within three units of a parallel canvas edge, leaving behind a central square 14 by 14. Lines within this square can be associated with dealt playing cards Ace through King (games of chance are loaded with symbolism, which is why the Surrealists loved them), the red cards becoming vertical lines and the black horizontal, with each painting having at least a single black square. Each of these paintings is plotted in the form of seven shapes, squares or rectangles of differing dimension, each with its own colour.... For Poldaas, his methods are a way of making explicit, if not exactly transparent, the sequence of decisions in a kind of relief. Art, like all forms of human action, is defined by sequences of decisions, some determined by broad, pragmatic reflections, others impulsive and intuitive, all of them haunted by contingency, expedience, arbitrariness, and ultimately, by irreversibility." – Excerpt from the essay "Seeing and Thinking" by Daniel Baird, to be included in a forthcoming catalogue publication of Jaan Poldaas works from 2016.

Ginette Legaré: For the time being.
Birch Contemporary is pleased to present For the time being, a solo exhibition by Toronto-based artist Ginette Legaré.
Legaré's new sculptural works mine what remains available in reused objects and materials after their initial inscription in, and erasure from, more functional work sites. In these sculptures and installations she continues to expand her search into the often overlooked and elusive relations among objects within the various social, material, and historical contexts they occupy. Essentially, as she puts it, "Though much has been said about objects, they remain disarmingly intriguing. They compel me to engage with the ideas, perceptions, and other intangibles they inevitably host."

Spotlight Canada: Faces That Shaped a Nation. North and west façades of Ryerson Image Centre. On the occasion of Canada's Sesquicentennial, the RIC honours the country's culture with this photographic mural highlighting key figures who helped establish our national identity through their endeavours and resilience. These 14 portraits, arrayed across the RIC's west and north façades, mark the arrival of a new promised gift to Ryerson University – nearly 25,000 photographs of Canadian personalities and events from the 20th century, preserved in The New York Times Photo Archive. Acquired by real estate entrepreneur Chris Bratty and donated as an act of cultural repatriation, the Rudolph P. Bratty Family Collection further establishes the RIC as an important destination for the study of press photography. This historical panorama (including images of Margaret Atwood, John Candy, Leonard Cohen, Viola Desmond, Chief Dan George, Wayne Gretzky, Yousuf Karsh, k. d. lang, Marshall McLuhan, Oscar Peterson, Mary Pickford, Buffy Sainte-Marie, David Suzuki, and Pierre Elliott Trudeau) symbolizes the diverse generations who have exemplified Canadian achievement. When the RIC first opened in September 2012, the building's façade depicted important North American and European cultural icons. These portraits were drawn from the Black Star Collection of photojournalism, which, despite its rich representation of 20th-century history, includes few images of Canada. The recent arrival of these Canadian photographs from The New York Times Photo Archive provides an ideal opportunity to exchange the first mural for a new one – a glass vista that celebrates the primacy and eminence of our nation's own history and culture. Curated by the Ryerson Image Centre, designed by Kelsey Blackwell and presented in partnership with the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival and Ryerson University ... more

Enigmatic Encaustics Exhibition.
Joya Paul and Ann Shier are encaustic artists who have complementary but different approaches to the medium of encaustic. They have been studio partners since 2008, exhibiting together in various shows in Toronto. They work out of Second Door Studio in the Distillery District where they impart their passion and knowledge of encaustic art through workshops.
Joya's work is a combination of imagery, both drawn or photo-based, with mixed media. Ann Shier produces colour fields with inspiration from Canadian Northern landscapes. Enigmatic Encaustics showcases the ethereal and dreamlike quality of this medium through two very distinct applications.

No, rather a harmony in balance, a team effort, many shared voices, one overarching message. And no, we won't tell you! Take your pick: God is in the details; The devil is in the details.

The process of fusing, shattering, layering, collaging and piecing together shards of glass into a cohesive whole is another metaphor for the multiple and layered challenges that affect all touched by adoption ... more

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.

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. A Foundation for Fifty Years presents some of the most significant donations made for the McMichael gallery's founding year (1966) by Signe and Robert McMichael, as well as by their peers, who wanted to gift the public with beautiful Canadian masterworks. Installed in the main gallery, this collection celebrates the works of the Group of Seven and their contemporaries. Artists on show include Tom Thomson, Lawren Harris, David Milne, and Emily Carr, to name a few. The exhibition space has been restored to its 1960s modernist style, in a manner that the McMichaels intended: traditional materials with modern lines.

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.

Once Upon a Time, Deep in the Dark Forest.
Organized by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection.
Curator: Sharona Adamowicz-Clements.
In the landscape art of the Group of Seven, the viewer has been conditioned to recognize the picturesque beauty of the Canadian forest. Fierce, strong, and often unspoiled, it reflected a sense of character for a developing nation. This exhibition presents historical and contemporary art – including that of the Group and their associates – that suggests the forest is no symbol of glory; it is where beauty, mystery, fantasy, and darkness collide.

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 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.

In blending reality and illusion, his residency research will focus on projection as a performative action, rather than as a residual documentation.

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.

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.

POWER KIDS. FREE. Tour the gallery and engage in art activities inspired by the current exhibition, Ydessa Hendeles: The Milliner's Daughter, in these art workshops for children ages 7-12.
25 Jun: Rainbow Bodies. Ydessa Hendeles has created an installation titled From her wooden sleep..., in which wooden manikins represent people – some insiders, some outsiders – but the manikins are mostly monochromatic. After discussing the contextual importance of Hendeles' installation, we will design and make marionette shadow puppets out of paper and cardboard using all the colours of the rainbow as a symbol of inclusion! http://bit.ly/2tKo5hp.
27 Jun: Citizens of a Diverse City. Canada is a diverse country – from coast to coast – and Toronto is a diverse city! In these workshops we will look to Ydessa Hendeles' manikins as a springboard for discussion about difference, diversity and community, then we will invent and create shadow puppets inspired by characters and stories reflecting our own experiences of diversity in Canada. This Power Kids program is presented as part of Harbourfront Centre's Here in the Six – Celebrating Multiculturalism. Drop-in sessions will run 10-11am, 11:30am-12:30pm, and 1-2pm. http://bit.ly/2tq46p6.
9 Jul: DIY Wind-Up Toys. Ydessa Hendeles' Aero-Car inspires this STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) program. We will discover how Hendeles speaks to both the past and the future in her work by drawing upon the use of antique toys and futuristic automatons. Each participant will then design and build their own retro-style wind-up toy using springs, thread and cardboard. Once complete, we will wind up our toys and watch them go zoom! http://bit.ly/2rNMCG2.
23 Jul: Manikins Come to Life! The manikins in Ydessa Hendeles' The Milliner's Daughter appear as if they have been frozen in a tableau vivant – a living picture. After viewing and talking about the manikins in the exhibition, we will work in small groups – inspired by performance art – to invent a story, and design and make props from mixed media. Then, using our props, we will pose as living models in our tableaux vivants. Each group will be photographed in one (or more) pose(s), and we will share those pictures with you! http://bit.ly/2rS69Ap.

The 506 Streetcar Show.
Exhibition dates: Jun 28-Jul 16, 2017 | reception Thur 29 Jun, 6-9pm.
Artwork drop-off day: Sun 25 Jun, 4-7pm.
The 506 Streetcar Show asks artists to reflect on Canada's 150th birthday, our history, heritage, determined, in many ways, geographically by a national railroad connecting east to west; describing, in many ways, how we came together as a country. As diverse as it is vast, stories describing oral histories have been shared and continue to be – some heroic, about overcoming great odds, some very sad and tragic, some still being created. A vast country with many stories to describe it, attempting to explain it. The 506 Streetcar route is a snapshot of that east-west travel, rolling through several different neighbourhoods, whose citizens speak many different languages, hold many different religious beliefs, and whose stories may be as different,with perhaps a surprising common link or two.
We are asking artists to tell a visual story that reflects this part of our history, or your personal history; whether it is local or national, and how you relate and identify as a Canadian. Tell us your story.
$25 members / $45 non-members for maximum 4 pieces per artist.
Maximum size: approx. 24" x 24" each.

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.

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

26 Paintings by Ron Lambert at Kent Farndale Gallery, 231 Water Street, Port Perry ON. Ronald Malcolm Lambert, one of Canada's original postwar generation abstract painters, pays homage to his critically acclaimed participation as one of the 26 artists in the Canadian Abstract Exhibition that took place at Toronto's Hart House Art Gallery in late 1952. This historic show was a breakthrough for abstract art in Toronto featuring Lawren Harris, Jack Bush, Harold Town and seven other members of Painters Eleven. As the last living artist of the 26, now 89 years old, Ron has conceived an ambitious and elaborate tribute to his peers that he describes as "the best, boldest, biggest and brightest" work in his amazing 70-year career (since 1947!) as an abstract painter.

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.
