Presented by A Space Gallery and ImagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival, in partnership with Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada (AANDC). Co-presented by Aboriginal Curatorial Collective.
Innovation. Adaptation. Experimentation.
These concepts have been inherent in Indigenous worldviews since beyond memory or record. Indigenous cultures have been able to move through time and space with the adaptation of new materials encountered through land migration and colonization. These encounters presented Indigenous peoples with different ways of thinking and creating. The inspired experimentation resulted in advanced forms that portrayed the dynamic and ever-evolving cultures of Turtle Island (North America). Material Experiments explores these forms through selected works of art that are housed at the Aboriginal Art Centre (ACC) at Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development Canada in Gatineau, Quebec. The artists presented in this exhibition have challenged themselves by utilizing new materials, techniques and processes. Through this experimentation these artists have created innovative and thought-provoking works that demonstrate that Indigenous art is not static, but evolves and continues to adapt with its people.

FREE with admission, the series continued the AGO's commitment to bringing live culture into the museum space, offering opportunities for audiences to immerse themselves in diverse expressions, stories and provocations that cross artistic disciplines. Check this page for info on future performances. The Gallery remains open late on nights with or without performances, as do shopAGO and FRANK. www.ago.net/fridaynights.

The AGO Art Rental & Sales proudly presents the work of Zan Rococo in FRANK's Art Social viewing lounge. Rococo is an artist's artist. Never one to give away too much about her pieces, she seeks to make the viewer the subject of her work by putting them in the position to interpret and decipher her symbols and semiotics. Even her titles are obscure, challenging the viewer to put their own experiences and histories into the story. [...] Rococo uses a variety of mediums and tools in her pieces, including layered and sanded latex paint which creates a smooth finish, erasing any hint of canvas beneath. As a means of integrating graffiti-style into her work, she even uses tagging markers, which leave a unique finish and colour. Her experimental methods don't stop here: she also uses trowels and traditional Chinese calligraphy ink throughout her work ... more

at Jackman Humanities Institute, 170 St. George Street, 10th Floor, University of Toronto. FREE. Mon-Fri 9am-5pm: Talking Back, Otherwise.
Curated by cheyanne turions.
Within the Jackman Humanities Institute's 2015-2016 research theme of Things that Matter, this exhibition proposes that one way that things can talk is by virtue of talking back, when they operate counter to our expectations of them, provoking our ire, desire, or surprise. By turns playful and serious, the works in Talking Back, Otherwise utilize this shifting perception of value to comment on the strictures of systems of classifications – poking holes, making fun, resisting. In the oscillation between one way of understanding and another, a critique of the normative world is made possible.

Robert Marchessault: Ambient Trees.
Bau-Xi Toronto is pleased to present Ambient Trees, a selection of new work by Robert Marchessault. The artist's new series references his extensive body of work and confirms his fascination with the tree as subject matter, a symbol that Marchessault describes as a "vessel" for meditative thought. Indeed, Marchessault's scenes are much more than nature studies; the trees we see are imagined, hybrid species, painted from the artist's memory, their surroundings equally constructed in to create each dreamlike composition. Ambient Trees re-inscribes a universal subject with contemporary relevance. Explorative painterly techniques combine with Marchessault's celebration of open space to create works that – while unmistakably of the artist's oeuvre – inspire a distinct sense of "presentness" in their evocations of the complex relationships between a thing and its space, life and environment, time and geography, mind and body.

Katrin Korfmann: Count for Nothing & Ensembles Assembled.
Bau-Xi Photo is hosting a solo exhibition of new works by Amsterdam-based photographer Katrin Korfmann. Korfmann's work is concerned with photographic concepts of framing, perspective, and the social dimensions of perception. The element of time is an important determinant in her work, made visible by presenting different sequential incidents that have been registered within a given period and location in a single spatial arrangement. Korfmann's intriguing large-format photographs can be characterized by a formal level of composition, structure and spatio-temporal experience, which culminate in a visual investigation of social constructions and behavior in public spaces.

Rouzbeh Akhbari: Spoliation.
(Mar 2-12 | opening reception Thur 3 Mar, 6-8pm).
Within the domain of architecture, "spolia" refers to the practice of repurposing ancient building stones for new construction or monuments. Similarly, in the field of forensics, "spoliation" refers to the destruction or material alteration of evidence, or the failure to preserve property for another's use as evidence, in pending or reasonably foreseeable litigation. This exhibition aims to bear witness and trace the declaration and demise of 29 shipping skids as vernacular institutional stabilizers for the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Bank of Nova Scotia.

Michelle Foran: Half a Grapefruit is a Full Circle.
(Mar 16-25 | opening reception Thur 17 Mar, 6-8pm).
Order, like all things, has an anti, which is the dismantling of itself through entropy, like shortcuts, desire lines and IKEA hacking. Using found materials such as industrial piping, plaster and plastics, Foran's work draws connections between the abstract and the factual. These seemingly mundane materials adopt new dispositions through a re-contextualization in the attempt at reversing the role of entropy. The separate pieces in this installation merge together to appear illogical but through their illogical representation become systematic. Half a Grapfruit is a Full Circle transforms found objects using vibrant colour and choreography that results in their new and heightened presence.

Adrian Cohen-Gallant: Inheriting Crisis.
(Mar 30-Apr 9 | opening reception Thur 31 Mar, 6-8pm).
Inheriting Crisis is a series of mechanical demonstrations constructed to investigate the crisis humanity inherits from generations of industrial expansion and resource extraction.

Fifteen Years: Kinngait 2000-2015 ... more
Fifteen Years: Kinngait 2000-2015. The last fifteen years have seen a seismic shift in the Kinngait Studios. Sparked by the success of drawings by Annie Pootoogook and to the delight of a new audience of contemporary art collectors in the south, drawing came into its own. Artists who previously had made small works based on traditional subject matter began to experiment with different scale, media and imagery. Other artists who were never interested in drawing were drawn into the studios by this new sense of experimentation and freedom. This exhibition presents a survey of work from this critical 15-year period.

Land of Allure. Presented by Parts Gallery; curated by Kelly McCray. "These artists entice viewers into phenomenal worlds through seductive imagery that seizes the senses onto a path of fantastical immersion. Melissa Doherty is known for her excruciatingly detailed paintings of trees, either from above or from within the bowels of the bark, and pulls viewers into the heart and soul of the bewitching world that comprises the sanctuary of the tree. Yangyang Pan's intense mash-up collision of textural colours pulls viewers into her world of germinating abstraction only to push our anxieties to outer limits of bliss and utter serenity. Douglas Walker lures viewers into his fantastical layers of wonder through his monochromatic paintings of otherworldly imagery that includes architecture, numerical text and astonishing unexplored lands." Kelly McCray will be in attendance and available for discussion on Wednesdays & Thursdays, 11:30am-2:30pm.

Isabel Rocamora: Troubled Histories, Ecstatic Solitudes.
Curator: Mona Filip.
Koffler Gallery presents the first solo show in Canada of British-Spanish artist filmmaker Isabel Rocamora. Her large-scale video installations consider the performative language of human gesture and its relationship to individual and cultural identity. Troubled Histories, Ecstatic Solitudes includes recent and new films that examine issues of authority, faith, exile, territorial attachment and the intimacy of violence.

Set in the historically charged landscape of the Normandy beaches, Body of War (2010) reflects on the transformation of man into soldier. Punctuated by testimonies of retired and serving soldiers, the film deconstructs, through its rigorous mise-en-scène, the visceral act of hand-to-hand combat – inviting the viewer to engage in the relationship between human intimacy and the brutality of war.

Portrait in Time and Gesture (2005) poetically examines the transformation of the self's core over the course of an individual's history. Referencing photography, which traditionally claims to offer a genuine representation of identity, Portrait looks at moments of inconsistency and oscillations over time, describing a body that is at once separating and re-uniting with itself, betraying feelings of self-multiplication and revealing gaps in self-perception.

Across two enveloping projections and positioned between the fictive and the testimonial, Horizon of Exile (2007) stages female identity at the centre of a poignant meditation on the underlying cultural causes of displacement. Set in vast desertscapes and guided by individual narratives from the Middle East, the film reflects on the condition of women within authoritative societies, employing testimonies and choreographed bodies to consider issues of self-image, belonging and effacement.

Premiering in this exhibition, Rocamora's latest work, Faith (2015), contemplates the conflict between the three dominant religions in Jerusalem, seeking a common ground in the gesture of prayer and its essential humanity. The three-channel film juxtaposes three men – one Orthodox Jewish, one Greek Orthodox Christian and one Sunni Muslim – praying in time and place synchronism. The Judean Desert serves as setting for the intimacy of worship, referencing both the Biblical holy land that nourishes all three religions and a liminal landscape positioned as possible threshold towards a space of communion. Revealing a meaningful similarity of inner state and gestural intention, the film communicates a hope for transcending not only this worldly existence but also our divisive political and territorial debates.

Dora García, I SEE WORDS, I HEAR VOICES. While engaging with a wide range of international authors and theorists interested in the marginal, García's installation also takes up the topic of exile and artistic experience, and includes performance, film and archives.
Carlos Amorales, Black Cloud. A stunning yet terrifying installation of 30,000 paper moths, Black Cloud blurs the boundaries between beauty and awe, calm and calamity, nature and industry.
Mark Lewis, Invention. Centred on three new works shot in Toronto, Invention uses the city's architectural features as a template for an imaginary world, one where society exists on the break of moving-image technology, and seeks to engage with the ways cinema has revolutionized contemporary life.

Home Economics: 150 Years of Canadian Hooked Rugs.
Home Economics explores the unique stories and social histories that have informed Canadian hooked rugs, an iconic form of folk art with roots in 19th-century North America. Highlighting how craft and commerce have been deeply entwined, Home Economics sheds light on two centuries of creative innovation that embraces handmade tradition and individual expression – vibrant evidence of Canada's evolving cultural and economic landscape.
Today, artists and artisans continue to adapt personal experiences and points of view into material culture, part of the new ethos of interdisciplinary creativity in the 21st century. The exhibition features the work of contemporary artists Joanna Close, Nancy Edell, Hannah Epstein, Deanne Fitzpatrick, Heather Goodchild, Barbara Klunder and Yvonne Mullock as well as seldom-seen pieces by Emily Carr, Clarence Gagnon, Florence Ryder and Georges-Édouard Tremblay. Generations of creative entrepreneurship, craft innovation and community development are on view, with over 120 examples from the Museum's rich archive of global material culture as well as private collections.

Jean-Pierre Lafrance: Juxtapositions.
The Thompson Landry Gallery is pleased to present Juxtapositions, an exciting new exhibition celebrating the dynamism and artistic achievement of Jean-Pierre Lafrance. With a career spanning the last fifty years, Lafrance presents a new body of work uniting his classic abstraction of the early 2000s with diverse dimensions, linearity and contrasting colour palettes. Engaging with the viewers' senses, Lafrance aims at drawing the audience into his complex world of juxtapositions; flatness vs. linearity, contrasting vs. complimentary colours, impasto vs. smoothness; while continuing to create works that avoid a narrative. Notably, Lafrance has exhibited for the greater part of the last decade across North America as well as Europe. His works are part of many private and public collections globally. For more information about any of our upcoming exhibitions, please contact the gallery at 416 364 4955 or info@thompsonlandry.com. To see more examples of works by Lafrance, please visit our website at www.thompsonlandry.com.

Urban Gallery presents East Meets West – watercolours by Fariba Mirhosseini and Stella Dai ... more
Urban Gallery presents East Meets West – watercolours by Fariba Mirhosseini and Stella Dai. Fariba Mirhosseini and Stella Dai are Canadian artists both working in watercolour. Their works are based on personal experiences abroad and at home in Canada – and while their styles are different from each other's, their mutual love of colour and form brought them together for this exhibition. From village scenes in the Far East to the streets and landscapes of Canada, the artists capture these moments by painting what they see – and feel – in watercolour, and they hope it engages you to experience these as well.
Fariba Mirhosseini was born in Tehran, Iran. Prior to being immersed into the field of painting and watercolor, she attained her post diploma degree in professional floral arrangement design at Seneca College. A novice in the world of painting and watercolour, her passion for colour combination and mixing of colours brought her to realize her potential as a painter.
Stella Dai was born in Shanghai, China. Drawing has been her hobby since childhood. She studied sketch and coloring from a local art school and art institute in her leisure time. When painting, she immerses herself fully, which helps her relieve daily chaos and work stress. She turns to her painting as an essential way to deliver emotions and reflect her interpretation of life.

Harding Meyer | Archaeology of the Face.
We invite you to experience our highly anticipated solo exhibition for the internationally renowned artist, Harding Meyer. Born in Porto Alegre, Brazil, Harding Meyer currently lives and works in Berlin and Karlsruhe, Germany, where he creates his signature large-scale portraits. Meyer's paintings are captivating yet intimate, not only due to their larger-than-life scale, but through the uninterrupted eye contact between the viewer and the subject. The direct stare coupled with the atmospheric background, gestural quality and treatment of the canvas create a sense of mystification. Simultaneously realistic and surreal. The subjects in Meyer's paintings are unique and unidentifiable.

Erik Jerezano: A Bone Garden and its Communication Tactics.
Contemporary artist Erik Jerezano is enamored by characters in fables and popular tales that have the ability to become something else, to transform into another body. His pale illustrations with muted watercolours and delicate ink lines visit themes of metamorphosis in disjoined tableaux of borrowed limbs and tight-rope walkers, rifle-clad prosthetics, armies of insects and mysterious beasts. Mutation and transformation are current themes in Jerezano's work, as he explores anthropomorphism, fable and the grotesque in ways that offer abstract encounters.

Frances Ferdinands: Lassanai (Beautiful).
The work for Lassanai (Beautiful) emanated from the artist's recent 3-month stay in Sri Lanka. Under the auspices of an Ontario Arts Council Career Development Grant she studied and conducted research under two mentors who are masters in the field of traditional Sri Lankan fine art and craft, which is no longer practiced widely. Ferdinands' vision became a reality through the examination of these old traditions and revitalizing them in a new context of contemporary re-interpretation.

Joanne Filletti: The Space Between.
In collaboration with Space Between, a performance by Rebecca Everett and The Dead Ringers celebrating the release of their new album, Seven Shades, will follow the reception Sat 3 Oct.
Life-changing experiences are just that – they call into question all sorts of familiar ways of looking at the world and responses to how we make sense of it all. Such an experience recently coincided with an internal stirring calling for something "new". It was true for me that with change comes a revamping of old ways, as they don't seem to work anymore.
For this project I recycled drawings from the last 30 years, repurposing them to perhaps find a new way of looking at things, and thus a new way to respond to all that looking, all that seeing.
It's a little frightening, changing, passing from one thing to another, all that vulnerability rising to the surface. It called to mind the tradition of wrapping the body of the dead in a shroud – for protection, for comfort and preservation as the soul passed from one life to the next, wherever, whatever that may be. An appropriate way it seems, to say goodbye to a certain perception – drawings wrapping other drawings, occupying space in some new way, in that space between.
This show is dedicated to John Filletti, 1931-2015.

Marlon Griffith: Symbols of Endurance ... more
Marlon Griffith: Symbols of Endurance.
Symbols of Endurance is the first solo exhibition in Canada by internationally renowned, Trinidadian artist Marlon Griffith. Often taking shape as processions or immersive installations, Griffith's artistic compositions are stripped down to their basic form and abstracted into new ritual dramas. They are indeed symbols that endure in the imagination of participants and spectators long after the projects are finished. Following Ring of Fire, Griffith's procession for Toronto, this exhibition reconfigures the material artifacts of the procession into new constellations of abstract and symbolic forms, and stages the processional as a proposition toward innovating forms of participatory and performative exhibition design. Symbols of Endurance thus continues the procession's movement, providing a synaesthetic experience for viewers while tracing the project's trajectory through a thorough staging of the original source material, sketches, technical drawings, and maquettes that informed the creation of "Toronto's procession." Following the multi-sensorial space created by "playing mas" in procession, this exhibition experiments with new methods of exhibition-making for persons with disabilities as a part of its aesthetic, where visual art is no longer just seen, but also felt and embodied. Symbols of Endurance provides a liminal place of encounter, in-between the "living line" of the procession and a stage-set for the gathering of a new collection of moving subjects – the gallery visitors – who inhabit the performative space of Symbols of Endurance's exhibitionary frame. Curated by Emelie Chhangur.
Camille Turner is on AGYU's Performance Bus helping us celebrate 12 years of mobile performances! On Wed 23 Sep, the FREE Performance Bus departs OCADU (100 McCaul Street) at 6pm sharp en route to the exhibition opening for Symbols of Endurance and returns downtown at 9pm.

For the month of October, N Gallery is proud to début Aurélia Bizouard. In a collection entitled Chromatic Liaisons On Glass, Aurélia's works are a must-see.

Beyond the Pines: Homer Watson and the Contemporary Canadian Landscape. Jason Brown, Jennifer Carvalho, April Hickox, Brian Jungen + Duane Linklater, Gavin Lynch, Reinhard Reitzenstein, and Monica Tap. Homer Watson is considered to be one of the founders of the Canadian landscape painting tradition. He aimed to give a "truthful representation" of the Canadian wilderness in his work, as distinct from the more romanticized style found in depictions of the English and European countryside. Contemporary Canadian artists looking at landscape must also find a way to access the "truth" of a subject that is not only strongly represented in our national artistic history, but one that is both deeply political and personal. Placing contemporary work by emerging and established artists alongside that of Watson illustrates the universality of the quest to appreciate and capture the landscape in which we live.
Tweetgarden | Faisal Anwar. An online, interactive installation in which participants turn private confessions and thoughts into a public artwork. Trees have been sites for people to gather and connect throughout history and mythology in cultures around the world. In Tweetgarden, watch a virtual tree grow – online and in the Gallery – as participants share their thoughts, wishes and confessions. Tweet with the #treeconfessions hashtag to take part in the work. www.tweetgarden.ca.
Sung from the Mouth of Cumae | Mary Grisey. This immersive fibre, ceramic and sound installation references the Cumean Sibyl, a Greek oracle who was said to have sung prophecies from the mouth of a cave. Using destructive processes on woven textiles, Grisey evokes the effects of time and decay on landscape, history and mythology.

Katharine Harvey: WAVES OF LIGHT.
Internationally recognized York Region artist Katharine Harvey's ongoing investigations into the qualities of light reflecting and refracting from the surfaces of water and glass have resulted in lush, acrylic paintings and spectacular site-specific installations comprised completely of recycled plastic. While these sculptures engage the imagination and generate awe, they also function as a warning about our unquenchable thirst for the instant, throwaway culture.

The Photographs of Frank (Franz) Johnston.
Organized by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection with Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.
Curated by Sharona Adamowicz-Clements and Neil David MacDonald.
Through a selection of Frank Johnston's photographs of the Canadian outdoors, some juxtaposed with related paintings from the McMichael, this exhibition examines the relationship between the photograph as source imagery and the final painting. It offers insight into Johnston's working method, how he perceived the world around him through the photography, and how his paintings, which became more realistic over time – were influenced by photography.

This House Was Made For Christmas.
Organized by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection.

This exhibition celebrates the art of Christmas greeting cards, which were designed by seminal Canadian artists of the 20th century. Several members of the Group of Seven, including Lawren Harris, J. E. H. MacDonald, and A. J. Casson, and their contemporaries, as well as aboriginal artists of Canada are represented with works drawn from the McMichael art and archival collections as well as private holdings, some of which have never been displayed before.
The inspiration for this exhibition stems from Pierre Berton's 1956 article "The House That Was Made for Christmas" (Canadian Homes and Gardens magazine), which featured the foundation for the McMichael gallery – the actual home of the founders – as a special place of Christmas spirit. This exhibition reflects on the gallery's tradition of homeliness and neighbourly gathering for holiday joy.

Moving Image: Works from the Permanent Collection.
The RMG Collection, strongly defined by mid-century modernism, holds examples of movement in abstraction – colour and line creating illusions of motion. There are also emotionally moving images, both individual and collective, and, too, the physical movement of animals and humans. Curated by Linda Jansma.

Wear Me: Art | Body | Tech ... more
Wear Me: Art | Body | Tech.
This fall, Station Gallery partners with UOIT's Decimal Lab to expand dialogues around motives of wearable technology. Through this group exhibition we can discover a body that is constantly negotiating demands made by technology – both humanizing and dehumanizing. Wear Me imagines devices and gadgets as agents in dialogue with the human subject / body. It probes relationships between the two such as advancement, collaboration, co-sensing, friendship, imprisonment, nostalgia, parasitism, play, surveillance, interdependence and many more. This display imagines humans and wearable components contextualized within physical, social, political, and phenomenological networks rather than in isolated subjectivity. The intent is to incite artistic exploration through provocative, playful or challenging contributions.

Tom Campbell: Listening to Silence explores precious moments of silence in urban life, our desire to travel to distant lands and escape to wilderness, while at the same time often being unable to truly appreciate silence, as we bring our gadgets and home comforts along. Stratford-raised in a theatre family, Campbell initially studied stage design in London, England before going on to study painting at Camden Arts Centre, then painting and sculpture at Camberwell School of Art and Design. He has worked for television and theatre, and teaches painting at Toronto School of Art and in Ikaria, Greece.

In Spirit.
In Spirit presents the work of Tim Laurin, John Latour and Heather Murray.
Tim Laurin works and plays with family and found photographs that he reinterprets. His practice focuses on identity and memory and how one informs the other and keeps in flux one's sense of self.
John Latour's text-based art, sculpture, and found photography highlight the ways in which we connect with the past, and how this uniquely human activity is mediated through words, objects and images. In some of his recent works, he explores the ideas of spirit communication and physical mediumship as metaphors for communicating with the past.
Heather Murray is influenced by her rural backdrop and creates diligently and enthusiastically out of her haunted historical studio in Owen Sound, Ontario. She is drawn to our collective histories and the imaginary world of those who walked before us. She is a collector of ephemera, memories and rich discards that may (or may not) inform her work.
Co-curated by Virginia Eichhorn, Tom Thomson Art Gallery, and Denis Longchamps, Art Gallery of Burlington.

Thrown.
While the thrown vessel is the most common ceramic form, great skill is required to achieve total control in the medium. Once this level of skill is reached the artist can then either create ever more complex forms or loosen up and relax. Drawn from the AGB's Permanent Collection of Contemporary Canadian Ceramics, five artists – Bruce Cochrane, Reid Flock, Harlan House, Ruth Gowdy McKinley, and Kayo O'Young demonstrate their mastery over the medium.

Click. Clip. Paste.
Jonathan Smith presents fifteen of his photo-collages ranging from the earliest created around 1997, to the latest one hung while the glue was still wet. Friends and family of the artist act as his models in this show. The presence of the artist is suggested through his reflection with his eyeglasses or drinking glasses located in the foreground. Each work follows a set of formal principles: a grid is used for the collage composition following concerns of proportions, dynamic tensions and lines. The photos however were taken without any planned composition in mind. Many are captured at a table sharing a meal, at other times the models pose for the purpose of creating a collage.

Awestruck, Calendar of Ecology – Julie Oakes. [...] | Flower Vases with Flowers in a Vase – Paul Mathieu. [...] | Curated by Christian Bernard Singer ... more
In her new exhibition of sculptures and installations, Awestruck, Calendar of Ecology, Julie Oakes suggests a planetary future of cataclysmic storms leaving "a wounding devastation that is both natural and man-made." Yet, as in all of her work, there is great beauty – even in catastrophe and death. Through her carefully staged scenes of anthropomorphic animal subjects within an idealized natural world, Oakes continues to explore themes of spirituality found in nature while addressing ecological concerns about the sustainability of the planet.
Meanwhile, in Flower Vases with Flowers in a Vase, Paul Mathieu has created multiples of Matisse's 1927 sculpture head "Henriette." Here, he flips the heads over and repurposes them as vases onto which are various reproductions of famous still life paintings of ceramic vases with a bouquet of flowers. Subversion, sacrilege and humour come together in a conceptual exploration that actively challenges the craft and art dialectic as well as the marginal place of ceramics within the art world.

Imitation of Life.
Artists: Lois Andison (Toronto), Daniel Barrow (Montreal), Kota Ezawa (San Francisco), Adad Hannah (Vancouver), Faith La Rocque (Toronto), Lorna Mills (Toronto), Jonathan Schipper (New York), Allison Schulnik (Los Angeles), Skawennati (Montreal).
Imitation of Life is curated by Crystal Mowry and will tour to the Southern Alberta Art Gallery in February 2016.
Imitation of Life takes myriad definitions of "animate" as its point of departure. The works in this exhibition employ technologies that range from manually operated projections to narratives constructed from existing digital worlds, from Second-Life fictions inspired by real history to existential cartoons, from still photos that carefully re-imagine locomotion to kinetic sculpture that prompts rumination on the nature of entropy in human life. In recent years, an understanding of what constitutes life has become nuanced. An emphasis on quality, authenticity, and autonomy has demonstrated that the terms of life are far from a simplistic alive-or-dead binary. Organisms are cloned. Biological phenomena and processes can be simulated through artificial intelligence. Coding enables us to digitally "participate" in the world after we die. A framework for living that was previously predicated on biology is being redefined and renegotiated by technology. The works in this exhibition invite us to think about the alternative options for existence and the complex overlap of theatricality and existentialism that permeate these efforts.

Jinny Yu: Don't They Ever Stop Migrating? Presented and organized by Nuova Icona at Oratorio di San Ludovico, Venice, Italy. Supported by Ottawa Art Gallery. Co-curators: Elisa Genna, Vittorio Urbani, Ola Wlusek. Yu's site-specific painting on fabric and sound installation is a timely meditation about painting and migration. The immersive work explores what is at the core of the refugee crisis along with the fear that host populations feel about migrants, perceiving them not as individual humans, but as swarms, floods, and masses. http://nuovaicona.org.

Under New Management's Video Store Project, various artists. Curated by Suzanne Carte, Su-Ying Lee. Under New Management's Video Store exhibition takes the form of a video rental store that carries artists' videos. The project employs the characteristics of the retail environment to connect to the local community while challenging the gallery's role as an intermediary that delimits the viewer's direct access to art. Video titles in stock are artists' works procured through an open call submission process. "Customers" are asked to pay what they wish, which can be interpreted as cash, a non-monetary exchange, critique, or no remuneration. This facet is in place as an experimental form of engagement, where artists have the opportunity to receive responses directly from viewers. In turn, the viewer has an uncommon channel to the artist. Under New Management (UNM) is comprised of the curatorial team Suzanne Carte and Su-Ying Lee, a collective of cultural producers working in contemporary art. Operating as a mutable entity, UNM re-invents roles and shifts boundaries to inspire production and engagement. Collaboration with new and experimental strategies is at the forefront of our practice. Suzanne Carte is an independent curator and critical art writer. Currently, she works as the Assistant Curator at the Art Gallery of York University (AGYU). Su-Ying Lee is the Assistant Curator at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (MOCCA) and most recently completed a one-year curatorial residency at the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery, funded by the Canada Council for the Arts. Thank you to the George Taylor Richardson Memorial Fund at Queen's University for their generous support of the Video Store Project.

Myth Marks: Pansee Atta.
Myth Marks is a series of short animations inspired by the visual traditions of the Ottoman and Mughal miniature. They explore themes of migration, culture, and belonging in the Canadian landscape, addressing the settler colonial legacies of this land with which Muslim migrants engage in politically complex mediation. By using text as well as still and moving images, these works reveal the ways that art and politics work together to create fearful myths, under the seductive disguises of ornate decoration.
Pansee Atta's practice involves artistic, activist, and academic work, and is often collaborative and community-based. She has been involved as a volunteer at the Modern Fuel Artist-Run Centre, and Union Gallery, both in Kingston, and G101 in Ottawa, as well as various progressive organizations such as Pink Triangle Services, Indigenous People's Solidarity Ottawa, and Food Not Bombs. She is also a member of Turbines Curatorial Collective. She is currently completing an MA in Cultural Studies at Queen's University, examining the decolonization of museums.

EDUCATION & PUBLIC PROGRAMS.

These principles, combined with Creativity and Imagination, reflect our high level of compassion and appreciation for the artist process, provide the highest quality introduction to critical thinking and instruction – for all ages. The AGM is a thinking space to engage with art!

The AGM is a thinking space to engage with art!

Education Philosophy.
The AGM's education and engagement projects and programming aim to contemplate, represent and interact with the vibrant and layered lived experiences of the city – its human geography. As the AGM presents high-calibre exhibitions, it simultaneously recognizes a wide range in the public's visual literacy and art viewing habits and is committed to facilitating equitable platforms that will allow for the full appreciation of contemporary artistic practice by all residents. The Gallery encourages and values difference and the nuances of experience in the pursuit of learning, critical thinking and engagement.

Engagement.
The AGM considers art as an evolving platform for dialogue on contemporary culture and presents exhibitons and programming centred on discussions relevant to its constituents. Informed by these views, the AGM aims to demystify contemporary art as valuable only in the institutional context and to integrate visual arts experiences into the daily life of Mississauga residents. Contemporary art knowledge and "art world savvy" as a final index of "experience" is not required at the AGM – rather, the Gallery welcomes multiple views, experiences and backgrounds to the evolving dialogue on art.

26 Mar: Combined Canvases. Latifa Echakhch has created a picturesque sky that has partially crumbled onto the floor of the gallery. The illusion of the sky is broken and mixes with the broken surface of the wall. Taking cues from her fresco painting, participants will create two original paintings in two different styles. Then, we will weave together the pair of paintings, creating an illusion of transformation from one painting to the other and from realistic to abstract. http://bit.ly/2jgW4bX.
2 Apr: Filmmaking by Hand. Jonathas de Andrade, like many other contemporary artists, creates films in the 16mm, a format which dates back to the 1920s! In this workshop, participants will discuss the contemporary use of older media. We will then explore an experimental filmmaking technique, altering 16mm film in any way we can imagine: marking, painting, drawing, scratching and more. At the end of the program, our films will be screened on a 16mm projector. http://bit.ly/2mxpNit ... more

30 Apr: Reduce, Reuse, and Redesign. Kapwani Kiwanga's exhibition highlights how urban spaces are designed to encourage or discourage certain behaviours. We will see evidence of this in Jonathas de Andrade's art as well. In touring both exhibitions, we will discuss how future architecture and design might affect us in positive ways, collectively imagining a city that encourages greener behaviours. Inventing our own imaginative architecture, we will combine our individual ideas to build a small-scale green city. http://bit.ly/2mxdOkO.
7 May: Family Heirlooms. Maria Hupfield's exhibition includes an oil painting by her late mother of a memory that her family holds dear. This landscape painting has inspired the performance and videos that Hupfield has created for this exhibition. We will discover that artwork with personal subject matter is often the most powerful and precious. In this workshop, we will draw upon this personal connection as each child and their parent(s) or guardian(s) create a collaborative painted family heirloom preserving a memory of togetherness for all time. http://bit.ly/2m6yncw.

Frida Kahlo: An Illustrated Life. At Joseph D. Carrier Art Gallery, 901 Lawrence Avenue West, Toronto.
Famed Mexican artist Frida Kahlo created some of the most iconic and challenging images of the 20th century. Her beautiful and evocative self-portraits have captivated the art world, with fans like Madonna singing her praises. Now, more than 60 years after her death, Toronto artist Franco De Simone reimagines some of Kahlo's most famous – and infamous – works using still photography and mixed-media.
From The Broken Column to Cropped Hair, De Simone's photographs evoke a feeling of having captured Frida during the creation of her own self-portraits... a stolen snapshot taken just as the final brush stroke was completed.
An Illustrated Life features 27 works, a collection reflecting the finest works of the woman whose vibrant and tragic life continues to resonate both within her beloved Mexico and the rest of the world.
Don't miss this unique opportunity to see these photographic interpretations of Frida Kahlo's rich, iconic works. A brief promotional video here: ww.youtube.com/watch?v=OtmQp7mk8PE&feature=youtu.be. www.francodesimone.com.

Tony Paginton and Shahe Sabag are presenting the works of their fathers, George Paginton (1901-1988) and Noubar Sabag (1920-2006). Both fathers were immigrants from very different backgrounds; one from England and the other an Armenian from Syria. Though the two artists did not know each other, their sons met in Canada and are both immensely proud of what their fathers achieved as lifelong active painters despite their challenging beginnings. After their settlement in their adopted home, Nubarr and George fell in love with the Canadian landscape and spent a lifetime expressing it in their respective styles.
