Mary Ann Slater: Under the Dust.
This collection of paintings brings items that we have forgotten in our basements, garages and attics back to the forefront of our minds. The simplicity of the piece turns the focus to the beauty of the object, and helps us rediscover treasures that might be hiding under the dust.

David Kaufman: THE POSTHUMOUS LANDSCAPE: Jewish Historical Sites in Western Ukraine.
Seventy-two years after the Holocaust, western Ukraine is still replete with remnants of Jewish communal life, but the community's history has all but vanished from popular consciousness. Photographer David Kaufman travelled in June 2016 to the cities of Lviv and Chernivtsi, and eighteen surrounding towns, to document the region's abundant Jewish material culture. Kaufman's highly-detailed images depict synagogues, cemeteries, memorials, public spaces and architecture, some functioning, some in a state of ruin. The area's tiny Jewish population struggles today to preserve what it can, with some help from abroad and from local and national agencies.

Jeff Thomas | A Necessary Fiction: My Conversation with George Hunter and Edward S. Curtis.
Curated by Laura Carusi, Curatorial and Collection Coordinator.
A Necessary Fiction extends Jeff Thomas's engagement with image-makers who have used Indigenous people as the subjects of their work, interrogating the relevance of such work in light of today's self-determination movement. Employing the work of both George Hunter and Edward S. Curtis as catalyst, Thomas presents an alternative to the hegemonic and static narratives they both construct and reinforce.
Thomas explores the role such archival images have played in the quest to define his place in the world, and aims to reshape the spac of the gallery and the collections held therein into a locus for reimagining both the representation and lived experience of Indigenous peoples.

Nafiseh Emadmostofi | Burning Desire. XIT-RM.
Nafiseh Emadmostofi's bold figural paintings offer up representative and allegorical examinations of ideological conflict, and the power of art to inspire protest, incite censure, and yet also speak to a collective (and contested) desire to envision a better world. Emadmostofi's work was selected from a call to graduating students from the University of Toronto, Mississauga and Sheridan College's Art and Art History Program.

Power Kids. FREE. Tour the gallery and engage in art activities inspired by the current exhibition, Ydessa Hendeles: The Milliner's Daughter, in these arts & crafts workshops for children ages 7-12. 27 Aug: Rebuilding What's Broken. Ydessa Hendeles is not just an artist, but a collector and curator as well! She often collects objects and then organizes these objects to present a new narrative or idea. In this workshop, we will recontextualize a collection of repurposed children's toys, using them as the base materials for an artwork. Participants will challenge themselves by creating assemblage sculptures with different elements in only one chosen colour. Their sculpture will tell a story or create a larger form that has never existed before. http://bit.ly/2uvQUCt ... 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.
13 Aug: Family Trees. Ydessa Hendeles' The Milliner's Daughter includes a photograph of the artist at age six, taken by her father soon after her family immigrated to Canada. Inspired by the artist's story of migration, this program will reflect your family's growth. Each participant, working closely with their adult companions, will create a colourful tree structure that will grow and change as they learn about their family members. After choosing what kind of tree your family might resemble, use wire and wood to build the main structure and add small leaves or fruits to represent family members. http://bit.ly/2u6lQrY.
