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.

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.

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.

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."

photo presentation, Fun Fair by Heinrich Zille ... more
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.

2Fik: His and Other Stories is generously supported by the Hal Jackman Foundation.

Adrian FishDeutsche Demokratische Republik: The Stasi Archives.
The former German Democratic Republic was engaged in an extensive intra-civilian surveillance program seeking to expose and incarcerate suspected class enemies. The archives were housed in the sprawling campus of the Ministry for State Security in the former city of East Berlin, which served as the processing centre and warehouse for the volumes of documentation related to Stasi Activities. The archives are now searchable for citizens of the former GDR who believe their lives were impacted by this systematic surveillance. Fish's photographs document the extant repository of dossiers collected by Stasi officials, in addition to the meeting rooms, offices, and boardrooms preserved after the collapse of the GDR.

Serpent Me-ander. Gon Bregu ... more
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.

This exhibition celebrates the career of Canadian artist Suzy Lake, 2016 Scotiabank Photography Award winner, renowned internationally for her work on self-representation, female identity and the aging body. This survey of more than fifty objects, made between 1976 to 2014, brings focus to Lake's artistic process and methodologies. Including never-before-seen photographs, maquettes and working materials, the exhibition examines this important artist's career of experimentation and unwavering efforts through the years to push the boundaries of the photographic medium.

Max Dean: As Yet Untitled.
Curator: Gaëlle Morel.
Max Dean's As Yet Untitled (1992-1995) explores issues surrounding the viewer's responsibility for culture and memory, through an interactive experience where gallery visitors can instruct a factory automaton to save endangered family photographs. Composed of an industrial arm, conveyer belt, paper shredder, and two silhouetted hands, Dean's mechanized robot is programmed to pick up a 4" x 6" photograph from a hopper and present it to the viewer as a final step before it is discarded – allowing the audience to decide which images will survive, and which will be lost to history. A primary exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

Souvenir presents four short films addressing Indigenous identity and representation through reworked material from the National Film Board's archives. Using montage, intercutting and juxtaposition, First Nations and Métis artists Kent Monkman, Caroline Monnet, Jeff Barnaby, and Michelle Latimer explore and deconstruct cinematic stereotypes and interrogate history. These short collage films, each derived from a distinct artistic vision, explore Canada's complicated past – recasting documentation into critical inquiry and shining a harsh light on official inhumanity, appropriated iconography, and the politics of representation. Produced by the National Film Board of Canada and a primary exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.

Flower bed alongside Egerton Ryerson statue, Gould Street at Bond Street.
In her ongoing photographic series, Shelley Niro (Mohawk, Turtle Clan) documents the historic battlefields that hold significance for her people. Following the migration route of the Six Nations from upstate New York to southern Ontario – which began during the American Revolutionary War – she captures signs, memorials and landscapes. Situated alongside pre-existing plaques that describe Ryerson University's origins, her images offer a complex perspective on "official" histories. A two-venue installation presented in partnership with the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival and Fort York National Historic Site.

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.

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.

On the northern boundary of Yorkville Village resides the art of Frederic. To say that Frederic's abstract art is expressive and vibrant would be an understatement. Frederic's spontaneous use of colour on paper and canvas bursts with energy. An antidote for melancholy, the distinctive art stimulates & refreshes the viewer's senses. Sometimes, the artist throws in a little engineered form as juxtaposition to the emotionally boundless nature of his work. Both as verb and noun, Frederic's art flourishes.
You will literally find Frederic inside the gallery; it seconds as his studio. As he paints from overtop of his canvases – in the middle of the gallery – the floor itself is an ever-changing canvas of serendipity, from which he produces limited edition giclées. Throw in an engaging conversation with the artist, and a visit to this special spot will be memorable ... more

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.

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.

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-scèneOde 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.

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

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.

The leading member of the Group of Seven, Lawren S. Harris has become one of the most recognizable figures in landscape painting in Canada. A lesser known side of Harris's story is that he spent the second half of his career as an abstract painter. This exhibition demonstrates the breadth of Harris's oeuvre using works drawn entirely from the McMichael's collection, and includes personal photographs of the painter and some of the tools and materials he used to create his masterpieces.

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.

Kitchenware from the 60s, 70s and 80s.
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.

Mundialization: Student Art Exchange. In conjunction with the City of Burlington's Mundialization committee, the AGB presents a display of student artwork from St. Elizabeth Seton School in Burlington, and from Fujimidai School in our twin city of Itabashi, Japan. 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

Luke Painter: Modern Wand.
Luke Painter's practice explores the relationships between historical and contemporary design and art movements by creating formal, narrative and tangential connections between them. In Modern Wand, Painter creates a series of sculptures, fabricated in glass and wood through traditional and laser cut techniques, which rest on interconnected and raised carpeted platforms. The work offers a space for the viewer to imagine the often contrasting themes of functionality and fantasy that played out in the 20th century in relation to art and design practices.

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.

Michael Markowsky: The Persistence of Doubt. | Clare Langan: The Winter of 13 Storms.| Centennial Spirit ... 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.

Spencer J. Harrison: Not a Freak Show: Growing Up Gay in Rural Ontario bears witness to the artist's experience using the vernacular of the circus freak show to discuss both exclusion and inclusion. The work takes the form of a large circus tent that can be walked around and gathered within, acting as a catalyst for discourse and assertion of presence.

In the State of Flux Gallery: The RE Books by Lise Melhorn-Boe. The RE Books consist of a series of artist's books that address issues of memory, experiences with love, and fresh starts after setbacks. The books, up-cycled from used t-shirts and upholstery scraps, play on the phrase "Reduce, Reuse, Recycle", therefore each book has only three words, each beginning with the letters RE. The large stuffed letters spill out of covers suspended from the ceiling.

In the Main Gallery: sculpture by Dong-Kyoon Nam.

Power Kids. FREE. Tour the gallery and engage in art activities inspired by the current exhibitions, in these arts & crafts workshops for children ages 7-12.
22 Oct: Infinite Landscapes. Sammy Baloji's and Filip De Boeck's work explores the past, present and future dreams of a city's inhabitants. In this workshop, we will discuss how Baloji combines both the past and the future, the old and the new, in his photographs. Then we will transform historic images of Toronto's landscape into new futuristic scenes using plastic, paper and textiles. http://bit.ly/2jHWGwz.
5 Nov: DIY Camera Obscura. The camera is an important part of Sammy Baloji and Filip De Boeck's exhibition. It has the ability to freeze time and create stories. In this workshop, we will explore the origins of cameras – as far back as ancient Greece – by constructing our own camera obscuras! Like Amalia Pica, we will follow schematic drawing plans and build our cameras using cardboard, lenses and mirrors. Through this program we will learn about the components of a camera and the basic techniques of photography. http://bit.ly/2yb7Nk8. ... more
Power Kids. FREE. Tour the gallery and engage in art activities inspired by the current exhibitions, in these arts & crafts workshops for children ages 7-12.
15 Oct: Take Flight. The cardboard sculptures in Amalia Pica's exhibition are reconstructions of acoustic mirrors built nearly 100 years ago, between the First and Second World Wars. These mirrors were intended to detect the sound of incoming enemy aircraft. In this workshop, we will design and create our own gliding airplanes using cardboard and paint. After we construct our airplanes, we will take them outside to watch them fly! http://bit.ly/2xcFEMx.

19 Nov: Colouring Canada. Inspired by Michael Landy's drawings of logos and slogans found across Toronto's landscape, this workshop invites participants to create their own large-scale oil drawing of an icon with a corresponding work or phrase about what Canada means to them. http://bit.ly/2hhkgvw.
10 Dec: Billboards and Beyond. While photographing different urban sites in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Sammy Baloji often finds billboard advertisements depicting cityscapes from Dubai and other recent hot spots from the Global South to which the Congo aspires. After discussing Baloji's interest in Congo's imagined future, we will design and create our own billboard complete with glowing lights. http://bit.ly/2hgl9sh.
17 Dec: Secret Ears. In this workshop we will consider the use of translation and miscommunication in Amalia Pica's exhibition, ears to speak of. We will begin with a brief discussion about language, sound and the history of secret codes. Then, we will construct our own cipher wheels using paper, watercolour and ink. You can write your own coded letters and send them to a friend. http://bit.ly/2jFKPz0.

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.

David Kaufman: THE POSTHUMOUS LANDSCAPE: Jewish Historical Sites in Western Ukraine at Reuben & Helene Dennis Museum, Beth Tzedec Congregation, 1700 Bathurst Street, Toronto. Seventy-two years after the Holocaust, western Ukraine is still replete with remnants of Jewish communal life, but the community's history has all but vanished from popular consciousness. Photographer David Kaufman travelled in June 2016 to the cities of Lviv and Chernivtsi, and eighteen surrounding towns, to document the region's abundant Jewish material culture. Kaufman's highly-detailed images depict synagogues, cemeteries, memorials, public spaces and architecture, some functioning, some in a state of ruin. The area's tiny Jewish population struggles today to preserve what it can, with some help from abroad and from local and national agencies. Part of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival ... more

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.

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.
