Howard Podeswa: Still Life with Paper.
The works in this exhibition were originally inspired by The Subway Therapy Project – an installation of Post-It notes, placed by commuters on a wall in New York's Union Square subway station to express their feelings about the current state of affairs in the U.S. Rather than focus upon the text content of these messages, Podeswa explores the surface of their paper support in paint, focusing on the small clues that distinguish them from abstract shapes and identify them as "still lifes". This fascination with paper led Podeswa to further explore the fundamental issues of still life and observational painting. Included in this exhibition are the results of these explorations, including Still Life Exercises, a series of oil studies of sheets of paper that have been bent and shaped according to the instructions laid our in an early 20th-century art instruction manual.

Balint Zsako: Blood Orange.
Blood Orange is a series of paintings that examine questions of control and self-determination. With these works I want to look at these complicated contemporary issues through the representation of converging bodies.
The large watercolor paintings on paper depict groupings of figures that interact and intersect. Rendered in everything from bright hues to gray monochromes, the figures change colour or density in the areas where they overlap. There are perfectly lined up eyes, heads, hands and feet, raising the question of whether the figures are synchronized in their action or struggle for control. Either way, the areas that the characters share is a new form that none of them truly owns.
While the paintings depict open-ended narratives, the colours of the bodies and the way they overlap refer to both the conflict and unity inherent in struggles for identity and agency.

Early UFA Film Posters: Projecting Women.
The Goethe-Institut presents eight posters from famous as well as rarely seen or lost Berlin UFA films from the 1920s and 30s. Ranging from Ernst Lubitsch's Sumurun to Fritz Lang's Metropolis and The Nibelungs, the posters illustrate the range of images of women at the time, as heroines or seductresses, debutantes or harlots. The posters were designed by the best graphic designers of the time; artists such as Robert L. Leonard, Theo Matejko, Werner Graul, and Peter Pewas. Their works, like the films they promote, were influenced by the contemporary 1920s styles of Expressionism and Neue Sachlichkeit.

Peripheral VisionNew works by Sarah Gee Miller.
As a collagist and painter, Sarah Gee Miller's work is largely concerned with clarity, equilibrium, and the expressive possibilities of vibrant colour. She works with collaged styrene, which is a form of plastic, to make work revealing her interest in regularity and equilibrium. Miller is largely concerned with the implications of totemic signage and the formalities of hard-edged abstraction. This form of abstraction is an interesting duality: it hides its volcanic energy behind imposed order, and is capable of great emotional variance despite a minimal vocabulary.

Elizabeth Czartoryski: The Perch / performance installation and photoworks.
Performance schedule: Thur 7 Sep, 7pm & 8pm // Tues 12 Sep, 7pm. // Thur 14 Sep, 7pm. // Sat 16 Sep, 7pm.
The Perch is the second installment of a larger body of work orbiting around the idea of a gender truce. The exhibition includes time-based performances, a sculptural wall and photoworks that enlarge the aperture of gender difference.
Gender equity continues to be mistreated and misguided. In order to broaden the spectrum of our gender roles, and invent new ones, we must first surrender to existing prescriptions of social convention. These prescriptive ingredients disrupt our bodies from fully engaging in the creation of a gender-neutral equilibrium.
Within the rituals of our everyday lives, we are left with residual anxiety that consumes our desire to embrace each other as equals and re-imagine ourselves. We must strip to our flesh, express our vulnerability, and remind each other that we are all the same. [...].

The Faraway Nearby: Photographs of Canada from The New York Times Photo Archive. Curators: Gerald McMaster and Denise Birkhofer. Featuring photographs of Canadian subject matter from The New York Times Photo Archive, The Faraway Nearby examines a century of Canada's history and its representation in the leading American "newspaper of record." Taking an expansive view of the many stories that have shaped our national experience, the exhibition highlights images of major political events and conflicts, iconic landscapes across the nation, sports heroes, candid reportage on the lives of diverse communities, and portraits of notable Canadians. The exhibition draws from nearly 25,000 photographs preserved in The New York Times Photo Archive, known henceforth as The Rudolph P. Bratty Family Collection. This extraordinary new promised gift, made by Toronto entrepreneur Chris Bratty in honour of Canada 150, joins the renowned Black Star Collection to further establish the Ryerson Image Centre as a key international resource for the study of press photography. The Faraway Nearby is accompanied by a heavily-illustrated book, to be distributed worldwide by Black Dog Publishing. Texts by an international team of authors explore how Canada's visual identity in the 20th century was constructed – from within and without – through the dissemination of images in this influential media outlet ... more

The exhibition draws from nearly 25,000 photographs preserved in The New York Times Photo Archive, known henceforth as The Rudolph P. Bratty Family Collection. This extraordinary new promised gift, made by Toronto entrepreneur Chris Bratty in honour of Canada 150, joins the renowned Black Star Collection to further establish the Ryerson Image Centre as a key international resource for the study of press photography.
The Faraway Nearby is accompanied by a heavily-illustrated book, to be distributed worldwide by Black Dog Publishing. Texts by an international team of authors explore how Canada's visual identity in the 20th century was constructed – from within and without – through the dissemination of images in this influential media outlet.

The Notman Studio, 1858-1915. Guest curator: Emily McKibbon. This exhibition surveys the diverse production of celebrated photographer William Notman's bustling enterprise, from studio portraiture, to topographical landscapes, to genre scenes of prototypically “Canadian” pastimes. Emigrating from Scotland, Notman opened his first photography studio in Montreal in 1856 and found quick success. Expanding his business to various satellite locations, Notman employed and trained generations of photographers, studio assistants and retouchers. Together they presented a vision of Canada as energetic, young, sublimely beautiful, and deeply wintry, capturing the public's imagination in the years preceding and following Confederation ... more

Larry Towell: Union Station.
For more than 40 years, Larry Towell has documented states of transition around the globe. In 2013, he instigated a documentary project in Union Station, Canada's busiest transportation hub. His photographs are a behind-the-scene look at one of the nation's most complex renovation projects, while passengers continued to use the services of the station. From the excavation to the Great Hall, Towell uses both 35mm and panoramic formats to capture the people working and using the railroad station. Although once the domain of leading photographers hired on public commission, if civic projects today are photographed at all, it is seldom from such a thorough perspective.

Diligence and Elegance: The Nature of Japanese Textiles.
Curated by Natalia Nekrassova.
Diligence and Elegance: The Nature of Japanese Textiles presents over 50 textiles and garments from the Textile Museum of Canada's collection of 19th- and 20th-century artifacts made in Japan for both everyday and occasional use. Luxurious silk and gold fabrics produced in Kyoto's professional weaving workshops are juxtaposed with domestic indigo-dyed cotton, plant-fibre cloth, and silk kimonos crafted in an astonishing spectrum of time-honoured techniques – weaving, dyeing, hand painting, gold foil application and embroidery – that exemplify venerable social and cultural values. The exhibition focuses on the highly refined skills and materials by which textiles have been constructed and decorated over centuries, and on how diligence and ingenuity have shaped their timeless beauty. The persistence of traditions seen in such rigorously executed textiles has come to embody the heart of Japanese aesthetics. Every material, colour and technique has a story to tell.
Diligence and Elegance features the contemporary work of Hiroko Karuno and Keiko Shintani, two Japanese-Canadians whose consummate craftsmanship and philosophies are profoundly connected to the evolution of Japanese textile traditions of spinning, dying and weaving. Their internationally renowned artistic achievements are testimony to the ethics of labour associated with a lifelong investment of time, practice and precision; they position living traditions as opportunities for personal reflection and the acknowledgement of the significance of collective human accomplishments.
The exhibition also features videos provided courtesy of The Japan Foundation, Toronto, the Kyoto Shibori Museum, the Japan Science and Technology Agency, and the Association for the Promotion of Traditional Craft Industries in Japan ... more

Urban Gallery presents Shifting Light, solo exhibition by Allen Shugar.
Artist statement: Colour, light, the cycles of nature (so extreme in our climate), the beauty of the human form: these are the subjects that inspire my paintings. Naturalistic representation has never much interested me. I take, rather, a transformative approach that seeks to capture a purely subjective experience, a state of mind, an evanescent thought. In this respect my work owes as much to musical and literary influences as it does to visual stimuli. My aim is to suggest the extraordinary that lies just beneath the surface of the ordinary.
Biography: Allen Shugar is a Toronto-based artist. As a teenager he attended a Saturday-morning oil-painting class that introduced him to the medium which has remained his favorite ever since. He has also worked, at various times, as a graphic designer, an illustrator and a jeweller. He is currently the curator of Urban Gallery.

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

Frances Ferdinands: Between Latitudes.
Frances Ferdinands is a Sri Lankan-born Canadian visual artist whose exhibition history spans three decades. Her work is usually constructed in thematically based series, and has always been concerned with social, cultural and political issues. Since 2007 her work has gravitated towards Sri Lankan references, and stories related to her own biography, including migration, references to her hybrid identity and childhood memories of trying to “fit in.”
Much of the work for this solo exhibition emanates from revisiting her homeland of Sri Lanka. There she studied with masters in the field of traditional Sri Lankan fine art and craft that is not widely practised anymore in the country. She states: “My intention was to study these old forms and revitalize them through re-interpretation within a contemporary context.”

Coming of Age: Mary Kainer, Ramune Luminaire, Judith A. Mason ... more
Coming of Age: Mary Kainer, Ramune Luminaire, Judith A. Mason.

Coming of Age, as exhibition, reflects the deeply ambivalent social and personal perceptions of aging. Are the senior years a time of completion, reflection and serenity, or of impoverishment, loss and sorrow? Whether glorified or disparaged, aging is buried under a heap of preconceived ideas. Three accomplished female multi-media artists, Mary Kainer, Ramune Luminaire, and Judith A. Mason, each hovering around her 60th year, excavate this messy terrain. They consider age not only as a biological fact, but a cultural – and gendered – one.

Kainer's banner-like quirky mixed-media drawings combine data, collage, biomorphic forms and text. They address a range of health issues for the elderly: dementia, diabetes, cancer, osteoarthritis and vision loss. In them, she confronts the related over-prescription for geriatric, oft ill-defined illnesses and draws attention to individual experiences of deprivation that challenge the formation of existing societal myths around aging. Her accompanying figurative sculptures twist and reach, achingly passionate in their struggle.

A larger than life-sized female form by Luminaire pirouettes and arches her naked body with abandonment as she defies the disparaging descriptive words on the pedestal beneath used, at times, to describe the aging woman. Across the gallery, her floor-to-ceiling full-wall wooden game board – replicating Snakes and Ladders – plays out in surreal drawings an enticing, chaotic game for the over-60s: fall in love, long hospital stay, travel to see Taj Mahal, Alzheimer's!

Mason's evocative, vibrantly rich abstract paintings and mythological drawings combine in triptych form to tell of the not-easily-articulated interior life of the older woman. These triptychs and the accompanying group of felted marionette-like figures restage her original ground – the psychic, physical and material space/places from which her feelings, sensations and sense of self emerged. Her evolving experiences of her familial intimate relationships as content are then exposed as she circumnavigates the terrain through these works (including an opening performance) showing collapse, emptiness, starkness, storms, pleasure, pressure and release.

The three, as generative makers, combine efforts in an attic installation where the detritus of their creative lives is reformed into seductive heaps of objects and materials exposed or partially hidden as memory boxes or illusive reminiscences. A contemporary triad of witches, they hover over a cauldron: oh, let the moment come when I may give myself over entirely to... to what? To art? To life?

Espace plausible ; Plausible SpaceMathieu Léger. Artist Mathieu Léger engages with the visual conventions of land surveillance and cartography as a means to examine geography, boundary, identity, and isolation and belonging. Espace plausible ; Plausible Space features a series of photographs documenting wry and absurdist performances by Léger, where for instance, the artist is seen attempting to move boulders using his own body as leverage. The futility of Léger's labour injects these images with humour, which are accompanied by the more overtly serious wall installation created with maps. Purchased by the artist from a private collection while in residence in Geneva, Switzerland, the maps are pinned to a gallery wall to create peaks and valleys, remarking on the representation of space (cartography) and the space of representation (the gallery) ... more

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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