Tavis Lochhead: Identity Crisis.
The exhibition showcases seven photographs and one computer screen. It offers colourful abstract compositions of well-known people and is supported by an underlying theme of tension that the internet places on our identities.
Tavis Lochhead (b. 1987) is a Toronto-based visual artist. His current work studies the relationship between the digital and physical space and how today's experiences are curated by online media.

Mary Anne Barkhouse: Le Rêve aux Loups.
Guest curator: Jennifer Rudder.

In her first solo exhibition in Toronto, Mary Anne Barkhouse invokes the animal inhabitants of the land in artworks that reveal the transitory nature of empire, highlighting both the triumphs and betrayals that delineate history north of the 49th parallel. Comprising a series of new and recent sculptures and photocollages, Le Rêve aux Loups reflects on our skewed experience of nature as a resource for human needs, rather than an ecosystem with its own intrinsic value.

Deeply engaged with environmental and Indigenous issues, Barkhouse's artistic practice foregrounds a visual iconography where animals play a central role. She situates her work between the two worlds of the human and the natural, employing the beaver, owl, wolf and coyote as symbols of the ability to adapt and persist, regenerate and repair throughout endless incursions into their environs.

Descended from a family of traditional Northwest Coast Kwakiutl carvers, Barkhouse has always worked within a contemporary sculpture / installation style. Her elegant yet witty works frequently employ popular culture references, while her accomplished handling of traditional sculptural materials such as wood, bronze, porcelain and glass, bring both a refined sensibility and serious tone to her often playful installations. These sophisticated artworks offer a quiet beauty while revealing the difficult struggle over territory that continues amongst humans, animals and the environment.

The Thompson Landry Gallery is proud to present Une histoire en couleur by abstract artist Jean-Pierre Lafrance in the Stone Distillery Gallery. The exhibition's works feature Lafrance's signature style of highly textured canvases offering vibrant and complex gestures of colour. With titles like “Potlach”, “Fort Rouillé” and “Kanadario”, Lafrance pays homage to some of the places and traditions deeply entwined within the history and culture of Canada. And yet, true to the artist's method of working, these creations avoid clear narratives, tending toward pure abstraction.
For more information about the upcoming exhibition or any of our other artworks, please contact the gallery at 416 364 4955 or info@thompsonlandry.com.

Josef Albers, Nedda Baba, Nicole Clouston, Joseph Drapell, Liz Magor, Sheri Nault, Ron Shuebrook, Amber Helene Müller St. Thomas, Erin Vincent, Joyce Wieland, Xuan Ye, and two anonymous artists.
Curated by Belinda Ho-Yan Kwan.
Location: Gales Gallery, 105 Accolade West Building, York University, Keele Campus, Toronto. Gales Gallery hours: Mon-Fri 10:30am-4pm.
In The Writing of History (1988), Michel de Certeau famously outlines how claims to history and truth act as apparatuses for the contemporary acquisition and execution of power. Contemporary historians, active in the process of interpreting traces of the past, unavoidably insert present and personal stakes into distant, once-embodied events. Historiographic operations therefore write their own contemporary narratives, rather than providing clear-cut access to bygone manifestations.
Using de Certeau's insight as a point of departure, art( i f)ACTS examines historiography as a radical practice: an active process with the potential to unfold new possibilities for being and knowing, or an exit strategy in response to institutionalized narratives and power relations.
The exhibition, art( i f)ACTS, emerges as part of the Winter 2017 AGYU Curatorial Intensive, a partnership with York's Department of Visual Art and Art History. Curated by MA Art History candidate Belinda Ho-Yan Kwan, mentored by AGYU staff, art( i f)ACTS examines the AGYU collection as a site of ongoing historiography and a host of varying temporal forces.

Unsettling.
Works by Basil AlZeri, Lori Blondeau, Duorama (Paul Couillard and Ed Johnson), Terrance Houle and Lisa Myers.
Curated by Bojana Videkanic.
Unsettling seeks to trouble the narratives of the 150th anniversary of Canada by presenting alternate stories of national identity. The exhibition explores themes ranging from the indigenous history of Scarborough to the proliferation of modernism, from immigration to urban sprawl, and the underlying tensions between ecology and human intervention. The artists offer works that stand perhaps in opposition to presumptive understandings of what Canada is, and the land on which we live.

Urban 150. Cove Gallery. Mesmerized by the multicultural country that she grew up in, Josephine Condotta has created 12 artworks representing 12 Canadian cities and their electricity. "I've always found the electricity of a city to be a remarkable thing. The charge you feel from that energy of the culture and motion of all the people who live or pass through it is thrilling!" – Josephine Condotta.
