Francis Alÿs: A Story of Negotiation.
Curated by Mexican curator and historian Cuauhtémoc Medina, and coordinated at the AGO by Kitty Scott, Carol and Morton Rapp Curator, Modern & Contemporary Art.
Creating art that is equal parts poetic, political, beautiful and absurd, Francis Alÿs (Belgian, born 1959) engages directly with urgent social issues, from the war in Afghanistan to border politics around the world. Organized in conjunction with the Museo Tamayo in Mexico City and making its only Canadian stop in Toronto, A Story of Negotiation surveys some of Alÿs's most significant projects of the last two decades.

Propeller Gallery presents our much-anticipated annual guest curated exhibition, now in its 20th year. Each year Propeller invites a prominent figure within the arts community to contribute their knowledge and experience in developing a theme and selecting works for a completely unique exhibition. This year we have the pleasure of hosting Toronto-based curator Olga Korper and her granddaughter Taiga Lipson, an up-and-coming curator in her own right. The exhibition will feature works chosen by Korper and Lipson from submitted works.

POWER KIDS. Tour the gallery and engage in an art activity inspired by the exhibitions in these FREE art workshops for children ages 7-12. Contact powerkids@thepowerplant.org or 416 973 4949 to register.
26 Mar: Combined Canvases. Latifa Echakhch has created a picturesque sky that has partially crumbled onto the floor of the gallery. The illusion of the sky is broken and mixes with the broken surface of the wall. Taking cues from her fresco painting, participants will create two original paintings in two different styles. Then, we will weave together the pair of paintings, creating an illusion of transformation from one painting to the other and from realistic to abstract. http://bit.ly/2jgW4bX.
2 Apr: Filmmaking by Hand. Jonathas de Andrade, like many other contemporary artists, creates films in the 16mm, a format which dates back to the 1920s! In this workshop, participants will discuss the contemporary use of older media. We will then explore an experimental filmmaking technique, altering 16mm film in any way we can imagine: marking, painting, drawing, scratching and more. At the end of the program, our films will be screened on a 16mm projector. http://bit.ly/2mxpNit ... more

30 Apr: Reduce, Reuse, and Redesign. Kapwani Kiwanga's exhibition highlights how urban spaces are designed to encourage or discourage certain behaviours. We will see evidence of this in Jonathas de Andrade's art as well. In touring both exhibitions, we will discuss how future architecture and design might affect us in positive ways, collectively imagining a city that encourages greener behaviours. Inventing our own imaginative architecture, we will combine our individual ideas to build a small-scale green city. http://bit.ly/2mxdOkO.
7 May: Family Heirlooms. Maria Hupfield's exhibition includes an oil painting by her late mother of a memory that her family holds dear. This landscape painting has inspired the performance and videos that Hupfield has created for this exhibition. We will discover that artwork with personal subject matter is often the most powerful and precious. In this workshop, we will draw upon this personal connection as each child and their parent(s) or guardian(s) create a collaborative painted family heirloom preserving a memory of togetherness for all time. http://bit.ly/2m6yncw.
