Neilson Park Creative Centre (T.O. Greater)
opening reception 6-9pm; artist talk by Ken Lum at 7pm (FREE bus departs 6pm from Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen Street West, Toronto, returns 8:30pm)
Ken Lum: A Matter of Life and Death brings together three bodies of work by internationally established Canadian artist Ken Lum that take up the question of truth in representation, in forms that can be considered a kind of portraiture. The text-based paintings, prints, and sculptures in this exhibition reference obituaries and memorial busts – ways in which we recount, document and celebrate a life lived, but which are only produced and published upon its end. Often a simple recounting of dates, activities and people, obituaries and memorials invite questions: Is this how the deceased would have described themselves? Is this a true accounting of their stories? The viewer is invited to investigate the intersection of the fictive and the biographical, and what constitutes a representation of a life / death, through Lum's signature sly sense of humour. | Nam Phi Dang: Somewhere Else. XIT-RM Project Space. Somewhere Else is a photo essay resulting from Nam Phi Dang's recent trip to Vietnam, the country from which his parents fled years ago. With this series of dream-like yet documentary images, Dang confronts tensions felt by those raised in one country but with cultural ties to another, and explores the disconnect between the perception and reality of ideas of heritage and homeland. | Art of Words. Words of Art. Selected works from the AGM's Permanent Art Collection and the 5th Annual Ink Movement Mississauga Youth Anthology. Four participants from this year's Anthology competition were asked to engage with the AGM's collection and select a work that best reflected or spoke to their submitted piece of poetry or prose. The visual and verbal dialogues created by the four youth participants – Jordan Currie, Diya Jhuti, Abirami Sudharshan and Sonya Zhang – in this exhibition of selected PAC works by Bobs Cogill Haworth, Kim Adams, Carol Martyn and Paul Fournier, reveal that the creative mind has no limits in the connections it can make ... more

discussion 7-8:30pm
Connections: Art and Book Club. Literature and visual arts connect in this unique book club. This month's choice: It's a Good Life, If You Don't Weaken, by world-renowned graphic artist Seth. The discussion will be paired with a tour of PAMA's exhibition Heading to Palookaville: Seth and the Art of the Graphic Novel. In his first graphic novel, It's a Good Life, if You Don't Weaken, Seth pays homage to the wit and sophistication of the old-fashioned magazine cartoon. While trying to understand his dissatisfaction with the present, Seth discovers the life and work of Kalo, a forgotten The New Yorker cartoonist from the 1940s. But his obsession blinds him to the needs of his lover and the quiet desperation of his family. Wry self-reflection and moody colours characterize Seth's style in this tale about learning lessons from nostalgia. This is a FREE event in partnership with the Brampton Library; to register call 905 793 4636 ... more
