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.

As If Sand Were Stone: Latin American Contemporary Art from the AGO Collection.
Curated by Adelina Vlas, AGO's Associate Curator, Contemporary Art.
For the first time ever the AGO presents its extensive collection of Latin American contemporary art as the focus of its own exhibition. The artists, originating from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba, Mexico and Venezuela are each influenced by the specific geographical, political and social contexts and artistic legacies of their respective countries. Brought together, these artists' works provoke visitors to reflect upon issues of time, place and identity and to question issues of belonging, precarity and transience.

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?"

Nicholas Pye: A Silent Storm.
Birch Contemporary is delighted to announce a solo exhibition by Toronto-based artist Nicholas Pye.
A Silent Storm is a body of work about memory, duration, and disappearance. Through the use of large-scale photographic images, video installation and embossed text works, the exhibition speaks about identity over time and notions of voluntary and involuntary disappearance.
The photographic self-portraits in the exhibition use masquerade to depict identity in flux between what is fixed and what is fading. Additionally, the imagery in Rocker, A Silent Storm and Caught in Flight references recollections of masculinity and gentleness. The text works are fragments of a poem written by the artist, while the video installation The Mountain shows the nature of being: birth, life, death. This work, which is set on an infinite loop, cycles through the becoming and the departure of the anonymous subject.

Richard Storms: Common.
Birch Contemporary is pleased to announce Common, a solo exhibition of paintings and works on paper by Toronto-based artist Richard Storms. Featuring seabirds and birds, domestic scenes and abstract representations, Common is an examination of both our natural and built environments.
The subtly coloured "common species", our city's avian co-inhabitants, are part of the urban fabric that mostly go unnoticed because of their ubiquity, and are often ignored or considered a nuisance. The same could be said of the new developments and architectural expressions currently contributing to the city's spectacular growth. Continuing to be inspired by the many experiences – domestic, social, urban and natural – that he encounters daily, Storms notes that a closer inspection of these "common" entities proves worthwhile.

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.

Lanny Shereck: Almost Human. Lanny Shereck's exhibition, Almost Human, at Loop Gallery, consists of thirty large painted heads, arranged vertically in totems of three, on alternating backgrounds of red and blue. Each head is animated with a given personality, yet they all share a mechanical-like construct, an "artificial intelligence."
Phillip Woolf: The Edge of the Woods. While remnants, markers, titles, and other associations and evidences signify events in these landscape paintings, it is also the case that they represent nothing of any singular significance at all, and that they are only that which they seem to be – differentiated locations along the side of the road.

Material Nature, an exhibition by CERA, a collective of six artists exploring wax – Dania Al-Obaidi, Anastessia Bettas, Maggie Doswell, Claudia Mandler McKnight, Melissa Tseng, Linda Virio.
The CERA collective explores the material properties and nature of wax; that is, how wax can be transmogrified through hot or cold wax applications, or even replicated through the discerning application of acrylic polymer mediums. In doing so, the material reflects each artist's intent and informs the completed work in unique ways.

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.

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.

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.

Charles Gagnon: A Survey of Photographs.
Charles Gagnon is a major figure in Canadian contemporary art, one of the few multidisciplinary artists of his generation. A common theme in his many artistic experiments, whether painting, photography, collage, film, sound, or sculpture, is the material results of his eclectic yet reflective take on existence. Our exhibition features photographs from the artist's estate and will include Polaroid SX-70 original prints, as well as gelatin silver prints he made while using the Minox camera in the late 1970s. His works from the 1990s entitled Tables de matière and Mythes, display Gagnon's fascinating use of the medium to explore issues that occupied the mind of a mature artist and closely relate to paintings he made at the same time.

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 May 2017 group show – Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival. Water: Sustaining Life. Water is the world's most precious resource. Our new exhibition, Water: Sustaining Life features the work of four Canadian photographers bringing unique perspectives to water's special significance in our lives and the world around us.
Karen Silver is an executive producer of TV commercials and a photographer. "I'm fascinated by reflections, things that at first glance might not be so noticeable. It began with photographing reflections in large soap bubbles and then recently, reflections in water."
Maria Ricossa is an actor and photographer who observes people, hoping to recreate truthful behavior onstage or in front of a camera. Drawn to street photography, she watches people – capturing a story or a dramatic moment. She witnesses and documents private moments, after which things will never be the same.
Chris Hominuk is a self-taught award-winning landscape photographer. "My passion is capturing the calmness of nature. I'll drive, paddle, or hike great distances to get that one shot. In my work I concentrate on near / far exposures to reveal the importance of what's both in the foreground and the distance."
Alex Turner's work has been exhibited in Toronto and Western Canada. His photographs are in collections in Canada and the US. "These compositions seek an alignment of visual elements into an abstract whole. The results – sometimes manipulated – are often more like paintings or etchings than photography."

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.

David Kaufman: THE POSTHUMOUS LANDSCAPE: Jewish Historical Sites in Western Ukraine.
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.

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.

Annie MacDonell | The Levellers extends Annie MacDonell's ongoing research and exploration of acts of political resistance, with a focus on gestures of refusal / withdrawal and instances in which the body is used as a site of political action. To level is to make even, to redress an imbalance. The gestures that MacDonell is fascinated by are illustrative of the strange and amorphous effect that going limp has on the balance of power between the individual and the apparatus of the state.

Taiwanese-Canadian artist Ed Pien showcases Revel, a large-scale installation of hand-cut mylar, video projection and sound. Pien's multi-layered installation is a meditation on the way the past can haunt our present. It is a response to his experience of working with immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers overseas as they explored their past and their hopes of the future as they relate to concepts of home.

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.

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.

Mother Tongue: Chun Hua Catherine Dong, Raafia Jessa, Jihee Min, Yvonne Singer, Shellie Zhang, Alize Zorlutuna. Language is a universal and abstract system of sounds and symbols. Yet, the social, political and cultural contexts in which a language is spoken greatly affect its development and usages. In ever increasingly globalized societies, our sociolinguistic identity is not often singular.  The language we speak at home, or learned as a child – our mother tongue – may not be the same one used in our everyday lives. Mother Tongue invites us to consider the complex relationships that exist between language and identity; how it defines who we are and how it can inform visual artistic practice.

Jon Sasaki: Things Saved for a Rainy Day. As part of Present | Perfect | Continuous, a year-long exhibition celebrating the Varley Art Gallery's 20th anniversary, Jon Sasaki was invited to create new work in response to our archival holdings. An unused panel from F. H. Varley's studio left in stormy weather is a meditation on the depictions of atmospheric elements in Varley's paintings and on the physical environment in which they are stored and displayed. Varley's junk drawer of 1969 made useful in the present is an attempt to imbue a collection of random "bits and pieces" with a new purpose.

Present | Perfect | Continuous. To celebrate our 20th anniversary, a year-long rotation of our most popular works by F. H. Varley are on view in the Collections Gallery. In addition, selected interventions by contemporary artists bring new insights to the study of F. H. Varley's work from our collection.

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.

The agenda in this interactive presentation is to celebrate the genius of Tom Thomson through he weather that inspired him. All are welcome. Admission is FREE; donations are graciously accepted.

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 conjunction with this exhibition, the AGP has partnered with Rainbow Youth at PARN to present works on representation, identity, and perception by LGBT2SQ youth and young adults from the region.

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.

SAW Video Media Art Centre is pleased to present a night of live performance and experimental music, featuring Elisa Harkins (Oklahoma / Los Angeles), Fire Queen (Hull QC), and Skin Tone (Montreal QC). Varied in their distinct approaches to performance and sound, from the four-to-the-floor pop beats and choreography of Elisa Harkins, to the swirling improvised transmissions of Fire Queen, to the emotive saxophone squalls of Skin Tone, each performer harnesses the velocity of volume to investigate formulations of identity, conjure cultural and spiritual histories, and amplify the urgency of their speech and language.
In between performances, DJ Golbon Moltaji (Ottawa) will be weaving together a set of layered dance music and sound collage that explores the emotional terrain of mobility and migration.
At Club SAW. FREE admission. Cash bar.
8:30pm: Doors open.
9pm: Skin Tone.
9:45pm: Fire Queen.
11pm: Wampum is an Indigenous electronic music performance by Elisa Harkins who has taken inspiration from native American sheet music from the 1800s and re-arranged it into dance music. Songs are sung in Cherokee as well as English.

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.
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. ... more

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.
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.
