Max Dean: As Yet Untitled. Curator: Gaëlle Morel. 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. A primary exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival ... more

Souvenir: Kent Monkman, Caroline Monnet, Jeff Barnaby, Michelle Latimer. Salah J. Bachir New Media Wall. 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. Organized by the Ryerson Image Centre, produced by the National Film Board of Canada and a primary exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival ... more

Retro Oatmeal – The Brown Decades: Kitchenware from 1960-1990. 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 ... more
