The Nanking Cargo. In December 1751, a ship from the Dutch East India Company left Canton, China, with more than 230,000 pieces of porcelain, textiles and tea for the European market. Less than a month later, the ship sank. Over two hundred years later, Michael Hatcher and his team recovered more than 150,000 pieces of porcelain that became known as the Nanking Cargo. The porcelain was sold in 2,800 lots in a record-breaking sale at Christie's Amsterdam. The Art Gallery of Burlington is fortunate to own 240 pieces and is exhibiting them for the first time in June 2017 ... more

Spencer J. Harrison: Not a Freak Show: Growing Up Gay in Rural Ontario bears witness to the artist's experience using the vernacular of the circus freak show to discuss both exclusion and inclusion. The work takes the form of a large circus tent that can be walked around and gathered within, acting as a catalyst for discourse and assertion of presence.
In conjunction with this exhibition, the AGP has partnered with Rainbow Youth at PARN to present works on representation, identity, and perception by LGBT2SQ youth and young adults from the region.

POWER KIDS. FREE. Tour the gallery and engage in art activities inspired by the current exhibition, Ydessa Hendeles: The Milliner's Daughter, in these art workshops for children ages 7-12.
25 Jun: Rainbow Bodies. Ydessa Hendeles has created an installation titled From her wooden sleep..., in which wooden manikins represent people – some insiders, some outsiders – but the manikins are mostly monochromatic. After discussing the contextual importance of Hendeles' installation, we will design and make marionette shadow puppets out of paper and cardboard using all the colours of the rainbow as a symbol of inclusion! http://bit.ly/2tKo5hp.
27 Jun: Citizens of a Diverse City. Canada is a diverse country – from coast to coast – and Toronto is a diverse city! In these workshops we will look to Ydessa Hendeles' manikins as a springboard for discussion about difference, diversity and community, then we will invent and create shadow puppets inspired by characters and stories reflecting our own experiences of diversity in Canada. This Power Kids program is presented as part of Harbourfront Centre's Here in the Six – Celebrating Multiculturalism. Drop-in sessions will run 10-11am, 11:30am-12:30pm, and 1-2pm. http://bit.ly/2tq46p6.
9 Jul: DIY Wind-Up Toys. Ydessa Hendeles' Aero-Car inspires this STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) program. We will discover how Hendeles speaks to both the past and the future in her work by drawing upon the use of antique toys and futuristic automatons. Each participant will then design and build their own retro-style wind-up toy using springs, thread and cardboard. Once complete, we will wind up our toys and watch them go zoom! http://bit.ly/2rNMCG2.
23 Jul: Manikins Come to Life! The manikins in Ydessa Hendeles' The Milliner's Daughter appear as if they have been frozen in a tableau vivant – a living picture. After viewing and talking about the manikins in the exhibition, we will work in small groups – inspired by performance art – to invent a story, and design and make props from mixed media. Then, using our props, we will pose as living models in our tableaux vivants. Each group will be photographed in one (or more) pose(s), and we will share those pictures with you! http://bit.ly/2rS69Ap.

The 506 Streetcar Show.
Exhibition dates: Jun 28-Jul 16, 2017 | reception Thur 29 Jun, 6-9pm.
Artwork drop-off day: Sun 25 Jun, 4-7pm.
The 506 Streetcar Show asks artists to reflect on Canada's 150th birthday, our history, heritage, determined, in many ways, geographically by a national railroad connecting east to west; describing, in many ways, how we came together as a country. As diverse as it is vast, stories describing oral histories have been shared and continue to be – some heroic, about overcoming great odds, some very sad and tragic, some still being created. A vast country with many stories to describe it, attempting to explain it. The 506 Streetcar route is a snapshot of that east-west travel, rolling through several different neighbourhoods, whose citizens speak many different languages, hold many different religious beliefs, and whose stories may be as different,with perhaps a surprising common link or two.
We are asking artists to tell a visual story that reflects this part of our history, or your personal history; whether it is local or national, and how you relate and identify as a Canadian. Tell us your story.
$25 members / $45 non-members for maximum 4 pieces per artist.
Maximum size: approx. 24" x 24" each.
