Apr 4-May 6, 2017 | reception Fri 7 Apr, 6-8pm:
Notes from the Worry Room. Deirdre Logue. Canada 1999-2017. A master of her mediums – small gauge film and video – and a novice at her subject matter – primarily herself – Deirdre Logue shows work at A Space Gallery beginning with the year in which she was on the organization's board of directors. Spanning nearly 20 years, the exhibition chronicles Logue's compelling self-portraits, as well as her handling of all aspects of the production and post-production process. Logue performs silent and spoken breaths: she climbs, crawls, licks, suckles, eats, drinks, suffocates, gets hit on the head, and falls. She records her infectious, beautiful dancing and explains that she worries so much it might be the end of her. Then she worries herself in-between the mattress and box spring of a made bed. She does not tell us what is wrong, per se; what she does suggest are inevitable and repetitious disasters. Logue's utterly symmetrical features glare at us while she confidently inhabits gender categories that had not yet unravelled. She utters discomfiting phrases and wraps them in the warmth and beauty of hand-processed celluloid. A Space Gallery is proud to present these moving image works in a variety of modalities on the Gallery walls. Part of Images Festival ... more

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?"

"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."

photo presentation, Fun Fair by Heinrich Zille.
Heinrich Zille (1858-1929) was a pioneer of social documentary photography and is often called the world's first "street photographer." Most famous for recording Berlin's contradictory vibrancy and precariousness at the beginning of the 20th century with a hand-held camera, he also captured the cultural idiosyncrasies of the times, for example in snapshots of Wild West shows as popular fairground attractions. The Goethe-Institut presents two of Zille's images, taken in 1897 and 1900, depicting "exotic" live displays of indigenous people. The photos are based on prints taken by Thomas Struth in 1985 from Zille's original glass plate negatives. Fun Fair is part of a Goethe-Institut Toronto series of investigations of "the Other", exploring how we identify and segregate ourselves, how we learn about and unlearn from each other.
The works are accompanied by a reading room that includes an exclusive essay on the fairground photos by Professor Gerald McMaster, OCADU, and an aesthetic appreciation of Zille's work by Jeff Wall and Roy Arden, as well as the ethnological documentary THE TRIBES OF COLOGNE by Anja Dreschke.
Talk and reception with Gerald McMaster & Deepali Dewan Fri 5 May, 6pm. FREE & open to the public.

2Fik: His and Other Stories.
Curator: Mona Filip.
A Primary Exhibition of the 2017 Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.
Assuming the multiple roles of artistic director, photographer and model, 2Fik stages elaborate tableaux that often reenact familiar compositions derived from famous paintings. Toying with reality, his constructed images destabilize the viewer's assumed points of reference, playfully orchestrating scenes that comment thoughtfully on current society.
Born in Paris to a Moroccan Muslim family, 2Fik moved to Montréal in 2003. His encounter with the city's multicultural environment inspired him to examine issues of identity and socio-political ramifications. Drawn out of this diverse backdrop, the recurring characters featured in his photographs are all interconnected and stem from the artist's life experiences and personality: Abdel, who was born in Casablanca, moved to Montréal, and now works as a property manager, turning to religion out of loneliness rather than genuine faith; Fatima, who abandoned her university studies to follow Abdel as his good wife and remains devoted to him even though they married out of family pressure, not love; Kathryn, an overconfident, spoiled young woman from Montréal's West Island, who is juggling many lovers, including Abdel; and Firas, who fled his native country and asked for refugee status in Canada, motivated by a well-founded fear of persecution based on his sexual orientation.
These are only a few of the lively, fictional individuals embodied by 2Fik in his beguiling photographs. Dismantling stereotypes, they compel viewers to question their own sense of self and reflect on acquired notions of gender, sexuality, belief, universality, and difference. 2Fik first explored these topics by diving into the intimacy and daily life of his characters in the series 2Fik Or Not 2Fik (2005-2009), and later by positioning them into well-known paintings reimagined from a contemporary perspective in his second series, 2Fik's Museum (2010-2012). In 2013, 2Fik began a new series of site-specific performance-based photographs, restaging history paintings in order to consider national identity narratives.
As 2Fik's first solo show in Toronto, His and Other Stories offers a survey of these recent bodies of work to examine cultural legacies and identity constructs. The exhibition's centerpieces are his latest compositions that reconfigure allegorical representations of nationhood. A new work, created for this exhibition, reinterprets Benjamin West's 1770 painting, "The Death of General Wolfe", an emblematic example of Canadian history represented through a colonial lens. The original dramatically depicts the General's fall during the 1759 Battle of Québec, celebrating him as a hero and a symbol of British dominance. Subverting this patriarchal, whitewashing viewpoint, 2Fik's vibrant characters of mixed genders, ethnicities, and faiths infuse new meaning into this iconic image. Raising irreverent questions, his critical reinterpretation disrupts nationalistic discourses, opening conversation on today's pluralistic realities. Shot at Honest Ed's just before its demolition, the photograph recalls this site's significance to Toronto and its diverse inhabitants, honouring both present and historical loss, mourning across time and cultural dimensions.

Serpent Me-ander. Gon Bregu. Robert Kananaj Gallery is honoured to present the first solo exhibition of Gon Bregu's work in Canada. The exhibition is a survey of paintings into which are introduced some elements of sculpture. The whole show is like a self-portrait, where eclectic elements inform the nature of Gon's painting. The artist sheds light on intent by direct reference to a shed serpent's skin. The snake (serpent) is associated with both negative and positive, or duality, in the story of Adam and Eve. Another motif is rebirth or renewal. This creature has the ability to shed its old skin when it grows a new one. Metaphorically, the casting off of this skin represents the release of old ways of thinking. The fresh new skin found underneath is rebirth and new beginnings... purification. Present at centre stage are the artist's at-work objects, such as clothes, a pair of shoes, socks, pants, shirt, eyeglasses, a cigarette rolling machine, and a hand-made drawing book. These belongings are integral to the theme of the show. Rendering fluently low-key subjects makes Gon's vulnerably rooted self open to the sublime. Certainty becomes a tested act in painting. Since his debut in 1989, Gon's art has garnered attention, and has been collected by the National Art Gallery of Albania. The artist lives and works in Athens, Greece ... more

Present at centre stage are the artist's at-work objects, such as clothes, a pair of shoes, socks, pants, shirt, eyeglasses, a cigarette rolling machine, and a hand-made drawing book. These belongings are integral to the theme of the show.

Rendering fluently low-key subjects makes Gon's vulnerably rooted self open to the sublime. Certainty becomes a tested act in painting.

Since his debut in 1989, Gon's art has garnered attention, and has been collected by the National Art Gallery of Albania. The artist lives and works in Athens, Greece.

Exhibition – Strike a Chord. To "strike a chord" is to create or trigger an emotional negative or positive response to an action. In this exhibition, artists respond to times of peril and violence: they retaliate with protest, search for healing, all while conjuring an atmosphere of resistance. At times when our role as citizens seems to ever more bluntly demonstrate that actions need to be taken in order for there to be change, Montreal-based artist Claudia Bernal, Toronto-based artists Coco Guzman, Julieta Maria and David Salazar, use performance, video, installation, sculpture and drawing to position themselves as activists in a society that has revealed its ultra-right wing ideology. Curated by Tamara Toledo. Presented in partnership with Mayworks Festival of Working People and the Arts ... more

Urban Gallery presents our Apr 2017 solo exhibition, Prototype, artworks by Welland, Ontario artist Colin Nun. Colin Nun experiments with how language is depicted and how the viewer perceives language. His text-based paintings explore the idea of conveying the meaning of words, using words themselves as imagery. His carefully constructed typographic motifs are deeply rooted in graphic design, influenced by pop culture, cinema, advertising graphics and ephemera.
Colin is a Canadian-born artist living and working in his hometown of Welland, Ontario. His studies include Niagara College, Canada, from 2000 to 2002, NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia in 2003 for his degree, and OCAD University in Toronto from 2006 to 2009. Colin has exhibited his work at several group shows in Toronto and has received awards from Creative Quarterly.

Melissa Jean: April Showers – acrylic painting exhibition.
My raindrop series began on a rainy day, while I was jumping in puddles with my kids. I became mesmerized by the patterns the raindrops made. Since then, raindrops have become more and more interesting to me, a little of an obsession. Having lived by the water all my life, I love watching the shapes and reflections in the ripples of the water. Painting is just my response to that crazy love. It can be said of anything, the closer you look, the more there is to discover.

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

Thinking in Glass – Philip Baldwin and Monica Guggisberg. From small delicate objects in combination to make large sculptural canvasses writ large, this is the thrust of our direction. To speak quietly, to make a large canvas, these things are harmonious and the contrast confirms the similarity. A contradiction in terms? 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. Is there a difference ... more

Derek Liddington. the body will always bend before it breaks, the tower will always break before it bends. A solo exhibition of new work by Toronto artist Derek Liddington is a performance of two photographic stills taken from two 1928 Ballets Russes productions – Ode and Apollon Musagète – staged back-to-back across two sites: the Art Gallery of York University and the Southern Alberta Art Gallery (23 Jun – 10 Sep 2017). Anchored by a co-commissioned video, each exhibition uses the "performance still" as a dramaturgical framework for the development of its score and mise-en-scène – Ode at AGYU and Apollon Musagète at SAAG. These exhibitions are neither intended to bring to life the particular productions nor rehearse their subject matter or theme, however. Rather, Liddington animates the space in-between performance and image as a point of departure for his ongoing investigation into narrative (meaning) and abstraction (aesthetics). The FREE Performance Bus departs OCADU (100 McCaul Street) on Wed 5 Apr at 6pm sharp and returns downtown at 9pm. Join Toronto artist and model Chris Heller for an out-of-the-classroom and onto-a-school-bus life drawing class while travelling en route to the exhibition opening ... more

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 ... more

Steve Driscoll & Finn O'Hara: Size Matters. Organized by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. Primary Exhibition for Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival. Size Matters brings together the work of painter Steve Driscoll and photographer Finn O'Hara for their first-ever exhibition at a public art gallery. These Toronto-based artists face a dichotomy familiar to many millennials: urban lifestyles combined with a love for the outdoors. The resulting images are moments of intervention on landscapes that are sharply foreign to the production and even the subject matter of the paintings themselves. Their work is a creative response to the need for a sense of scale ... more

An economic boom, the comfortable modernism of Swedish design, and a wave of young traditionally trained potters schooled in the Leach-Hamada tradition led to the birth of the modern ceramic movement in Canada. This generation of potters took functional forms and explored them as personal expressions that made them art for everyday living. In doing so they created forms that still are as fresh today as when they were created. This style is seeing a rebirth today – this is a chance to see the source ... more

The definition of mundialization is the act of a city declaring itself a "world citizen" and being aware of global issues with a sense of shared rights and responsibilities. The concept involves the twinning of cities from around the world, in the belief that peaceful cooperation depends on mutual trust and appreciation among peoples of different nations, races, and cultures. Mundialization encourages citizen connections as a way of fostering world peace and global understanding. Burlington's twin cities are Itabashi, Japan and Apeldoorn, the Netherlands ... more

Cultural Topographies: The Complexities of History and Identity in Canada.
Curated by Julie René de Cotret.
This exhibition features concept-driven artworks in ceramic and glass that explore identity, culture and history in Canada. Exhibiting artists include: Ann Beam, Adrian Blackwell, Laurent Craste, Chris Curreri, Léopold L. Foulem, Mathieu Grodet, David R. Harper, Sarah Maloney, Kelly Mark, Nadia Myre, Tasman Richardson and Tim Whiten. These artworks are outstanding examples of the potential of ceramic and glass art works to examine the complexities of our culture, inspiring fresh perspectives and new considerations.
Some of the artists featured in this exhibition have chosen to focus on specific historical markers and some on the evolution of our cultural voices in their broader context demanding that we contemplate their origins. Every work highlights the complexity of our habitus and the inherent potential for our betterment. In doing so they further define our identity.
The hierarchical categorizations and divisions imposed between art and craft are re-examined in this exhibition. Léopold L. Foulem, whose conceptual ceramic practice is principal to the development of this exhibition, once said, "matter doesn't matter", addressing the tendency of the art world, for example, to assign greater value to works made of bronze than to those in ceramic. The conceptual contributions of crafts to the arts are seldom recognized.
These artworks were selected for their aesthetic and conceptual value. In the context of this exhibition, the works embody the important contributions of craft concept to art, specifically in the fields of sculpture and installation. The craft concepts explored by these works are those of containment, and of the object as frame ... more

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.

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.

Distilling Nature. New Work by Chinkok Tan. At Papermill Gallery, Todmorden Mills Heritage Site, 67 Poettery Road, Toronto ON. Over the past 40 years, Chinkok Tan has become one of Canada's most prolific painters. Possessing an innate knowledge of how to capture the essence of light and colour on canvas, Tan's large-scale pieces evoke the quiet, serene beauty of landscapes. What makes his paintings unique is that they are as emotionally powerful at a distance as they are close-up, inviting the viewer to experience the meditative feeling of being in the natural world.
