Sammy Baloji & Filip De Boeck's Urban Now: City Life in Congo offers an artistic and ethnographic investigation of what living – and living together – might mean in Congo's urban worlds. The exhibition explores what "urban" means. Urban living constantly attempts to "suture" the city: finding ways to stitch gains and losses, or pasts and futures together in the moment of the "urban now." Based on their extensive joint field research in Kinshasa and branching out to some other urban sites in the Democratic Republic of Congo (Lubumbashi, Fungurume), the exhibition is conceived around a number of "urban acupunctures," i.e. around explorations of specific sites that form important – though sometimes materially barely visible – nodes within the city ... more

Michael Landy's Demonstration invites the public to collaborate in building a "wall of protest" by submitting images, words, texts and slogans that represent their thoughts and feelings – of hope or of despair, on matters small or large, from high to low and across the cultural spectrum – to be transformed by the artist into drawings. With the help of assistants, Landy will create from these submissions red and white drawings of protesters, which will be pinned directly on to the wall of the Fleck Clerestory as they are produced in a continually evolving display. Through accumulation the demonstration will grow, capturing Canada's social and political landscape through the eyes of its inhabitants ... more

Thur 19 Oct, 7-8pm: "Overlooked: Canadian Art in The Shining." Stanley Kubrick's 1980 horror classic The Shining is a covert foray into Canadian art history.

There are many artists to choose from, including Allen, Alexander, Albrecht – drop in and see how far this list goes....

Running until Sat 21 Oct 2017, More Distant Still featuring a collection of recent paintings by Stu Oxley. Oxley has his own take on the colour blue and uses it in extraordinary ways to play with light and the imagery that lies beneath the layers of paint he applies to his canvases. Each work has an energy that commands your attention, yet at the same time, calms and comforts. Like the stillness of the midnight sky ... They are soothing, contemplative, and all encompassing ... more
