Mourning and Mayhem: The Work of Adrian Stimson.
Curated by Wanda Nanibush and proudly presented by imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival and A Space Gallery.
Toronto's first solo exhibition of multidisciplinary artist Adrian Stimson, featuring a new performance.
Mourning and Mayhem: The Work of Adrian Stimson is a solo exhibition combining two streams of the artist's multidisciplinary practice: his experience in residential school and his commitment to the spirit of the buffalo. Buffalo Boy is the persona developed and lived by artist Adrian Stimson. Sporting fishnet stockings, a buffalo g-string, corsets, and pearls, Buffalo Boy's transformations and campy shenanigans challenge colonial history as a story of Indigenous disappearance and inferiority. Buffalo Boy's alter ego is Shaman Exterminator who inhabits the spirit of the buffalo here and now as a form of healing and transcendence.
Stimson's installation, photography and performances often enact a reversal of the value system that supports colonialism and the value system that marginalized Indigenous people as uncivilized. Through processes of mourning and mayhem, Stimson's work destabilizes these value systems with wit, irony, and campy humour while at the same time creating symbols of mourning that mark the trauma of colonial history that we wear in our bodies and communities.
Stimson often uses real materials like buffalo hide or the remnants of the actual residential school that he attended in order to ground his camp aesthetic in an actual experience or material reality. It is in the performance of play and the creation of spaces of mourning, in the creation of fictions and the maintenance of alternative histories, in the letting go and holding on to colonial trauma, and the engagement with the sacred and sacrilegious that separates Stimson's from the rest as a radical agent of change and not simply a performer of postmodern puns ... more

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 ... more

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 ... more

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.

Sep 14-Nov 26, 2017 | Fall opening reception Thur 14 Sep, 6-9pm:
Staring Back at the Sun: Video Art from Israel, 1970-2012.
Curators: Ilana Tenenbaum, Sergio Edelsztein, Yael Bartana, Avi Feldman.
Organizing curator: Chen Tamir.
Staring Back at the Sun: Video Art from Israel, 1970-2012 traces the development of contemporary video practice in Israel and highlights work by artists who take an incisive, critical perspective towards the cultural and political landscape in Israel and beyond. Produced and circulated by Artis as an internationally touring exhibition and program (2016-2018), the project showcases the work of 38 artists, including early performances, films and videos never before presented outside of Israel.
Divided into four historical and thematic sections, Staring Back at the Sun focuses on the activist impulse in video art-making in Israel over the last four decades. Informed by the international history of video art, the exhibition traces the development of the medium and explores how artists here have employed technology and material to examine the socio-political status quo, through themes such as the prominence of political conflict in mass media, the liberalization of the economy, and the impact of free market politics on Israeli culture.
Artists: Boaz Arad, Yossi Atia & Itamar Rose, Yael Bartana, Irit Batsry, Guy Ben Ner, Hila Lulu Lin Farah Kufr Birim, Michael Druks, Benni Efrat, Avraham Eilat, Nir Evron, Yair Garbuz, Gideon Gechtman, Moshe Gershuni, Tamar Getter, Dor Guez, Sigalit Landau, Raffi Lavie, Motti Mizrachi, Avi Mograbi, Michal Naaman, Joshua Neustein, Miri Nishri, Dov Or-Ner, Nira Pereg, Gilad Ratman, Roee Rosen, Buky Schwartz, Ruti Sela & Maayan Amir, Henry Shelesnyak, Ran Slavin, Doron Solomons, Micha Ullman, Rona Yefman, Dan Zakhem, Nana & Boaz Zonshine ... more

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. [...].

Sammy Baloji & Filip De Boeck's Urban Now: City Life in Congo offers an artistic and ethnographic investigation of what living – and living together – might mean in Congo's urban worlds. The exhibition explores what "urban" means. Urban living constantly attempts to "suture" the city: finding ways to stitch gains and losses, or pasts and futures together in the moment of the "urban now." Based on their extensive joint field research in Kinshasa and branching out to some other urban sites in the Democratic Republic of Congo (Lubumbashi, Fungurume), the exhibition is conceived around a number of "urban acupunctures," i.e. around explorations of specific sites that form important – though sometimes materially barely visible – nodes within the city ... more

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

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.
Diligence and Elegance: The Nature of Japanese Textiles is made possible through the lead sponsorship of the William R. and Shirley Beatty Charitable Foundation.

Tied, Dyed and Woven: Ikat Textiles from Latin America.
Curated by Roxane Shaughnessy.
From the striking indigo and white geometric forms of a Chilean Mapuche chief's poncho to the delicate zigzag designs of a Bolivian Aymara weaving, Tied, Dyed and Woven presents the conceptual and technical mastery if Ikat dyers and weavers from seven Latin American countries over the last 100 years. Their distinctive designs and methods offer historical clues into the innovative processes underling the development of Ikat practices, and attest to the significance of this resist-dye technique in the continuum of textile traditions.
The origin and history of ikat production in the Americas is not fully known, however there is intriguing evidence that this technique was practised in Ecuador and Peru pre-Conquest. The remarkable evolution of this craft is highlighted through two ikat traditions that exist today: one is associated with the weaving of ponchos in Chile, Bolivia, Peru and Ecuador, and the other with the weaving of women's shawls in Ecuador, Mexico and Guatemala. Used for ceremonial and ritual occasions, ikat cloth encodes identity, history and change, as well as personal and cultural creative visions.
Tied, Dyed and Woven draws from the Textile Museum of Canada's rich permanent collection and features contemporary work by artist Guillermo Bert (Chile), master dyer and weaver Arturo Estrada Hernández (Mexico), and weavers Laura Sánchez and Quispe Huamán Victoria (Peru). The exhibition examines interrelationships among ikat traditions in Latin America and explores the meaning and place of ikat in the design repertoires of these cultures. Beyond its continued importance in encoding cultural values within weaving communities, the technical and visual fluency of these ikat designs have also found popular currency in the global marketplace and in the worlds of fashion ... more

Urban Gallery presents Passages, solo exhibition by Chris Marin.
One brush stroke leads to the next. When I begin a non-objective painting, I do not know where I will go. It's a liberating, intuitive way to paint and to live. In Passages I invite the viewer to take his or her own steps through the paintings.
Artist bio: Chris Marin became intrigued by art after learning intuitive watercolour painting from Dorothy Clarke McClure in 1993. Over time, Chris expanded her interests to include collage, printmaking, acrylic painting, and applying transparent underglazes to her pottery.
One of her paintings is on the cover of What About My Kids?, a book written to help families coping with breast cancer. Chris's painting Home Again is the image in the Port Medway Lighthouse calendar for February 2018, and My Favourite Things was used for the IWK Children's Hospital Fundraising Raffle this year. She contributes regularly to the IWK and ElderDog shows, and her paintings can be seen at Riverbank, Mill Village, and The Port Grocer, Port Medway, Nova Scotia. They also hang in law offices and private collections.
Chris's story, The Edge of Risk is included in the book, Outside of Ordinary: Women's Travel Stories. And her Nova Scotia treetops studio was featured in the Spring 2009 issue of Studio Magazine.
The majority of Chris's paintings arise from the subconscious, whether she is pouring watercolours or sitting at her easel applying paint, simply responding to what she has just done with no end result in mind ... more

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

Xiaojing Yan: Out from among the tranquil woods. Markham-based Xiaojing Yan is known for her intricate sculptural installations that explore the intersections of the natural and cultural worlds. Her work is at once simple and complex, concrete and abstract; personal and universal. The material qualities of her work, significant on both aesthetic and conceptual levels, are at the core of her practice. She transforms lingzhi mushrooms, star anise, freshwater pearls and cicadae, among others, to explore traditional Chinese mythology and folklore. Ultimately, Yan revisits her own identity as a first generation Canadian, while offering contemporary perspectives on issues of mortality, belonging and contemplation.

Present | Perfect | Continuous. To celebrate our 20th anniversary, a year-long rotation of our most popular works by F. H. Varley is 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. This fall, Zev Farber presents Machine Fantasies / Human Events, a project that examines the intersection of art, technology and family memory. Comprised of sound, drawing and sculptural elements, this new site-specific work explores ideas of emission / transmission / reception as a way of collapsing varied moments and narratives from the last half-century ... more

The Look of Things: Murray Favro & Keith Shearsby engage with the idea of usefulness, of functionality, and of value. As such, they complicate the curious relationship between art objects and working instruments, between artistic expression and tools. Each sculptural object in the exhibition can be — or once was — used in a purposeful way to manipulate the physical world as we know it, yet in the gallery it exists as an art object — not to be handled, touched, or manipulated. This is precisely where some of the work's tensions lie with intrigue; though, it does more than that — it also throws uncertainty at the ways in which we perceive and manipulate the tangible world around us, both physically and visually ... more

East Wind is a mural by Maria Hupfield that brings a new interpretation to Tom Thomson's The West Wind and in which, a silhouette of Hupfield has been inserted into the composition. Thomson's The West Wind, on loan from the AGO, is presented opposite of Hupfield's East Wind. Curated by Virginia Eichhorn, East Wind / West Wind explores issues around the idea of nationhood and constructed historical narratives that ignore or obscure different voices – in this case, the narratives of the First Nations peoples and women. Historical and contemporary work from The TOM's collection is integrated in adjacent gallery spaces, and contribute towards multiple discursive dialogues of the themes Hupfield is addressing in this exhibition.
Owen Sound 160 features selections from The TOM's Collection exploring Owen Sound's history since 1857. Curated by David Huff and John Hawksbridge ... more

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.

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

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

Book launch and reception of Sensenomake Circus: a collaboration in mixed media. Sensenomake Circus chronicles a 3-year creative journey completed by visual artists Phyllis Kirk and Bronna Fenichel from 1987-1990. A true collaboration in every sense of the word from concept to execution. Sensenomake Circus satirizes western values using the circus as a metaphor with black and white performance artists juxtaposed on layers of brilliantly colored mixed media backgrounds. The unbounded energy of the circus-based alternative worlds explodes past the confines of the canvas and the addition of unusual materials and text further heightens the satirical expression ... more

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

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.
