first day (see Jun 28 for opening)
Alondra Ruiz Hernandez: Stitching Time. South Gallery. "This work embodies the passage of time. I approach photography the way I approach a painting. The exposures, the figures, and the background or the landscape are manipulated to create an image that wasn't there by rearranging the elements. Every detail has been organized and chosen. I intended for the subtleties of unfamiliarity to draw curiosity in the observer" ... more

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.
