In Dialogue

September 6 – October 7, 2017
University of Toronto Art Centre

Outdoor Opening Reception
Wednesday, September 6, 2017, 6-8pm
Hart House Quad

Organized by John G. Hampton

Co-presented by the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba and Carleton University Art Gallery

In Dialogue is an exhibition structured as a conversation. It invites viewers into intimate discussions that work through new ways of understanding and being Indigenous in contemporary contexts. Moving from spaces of contemplation and reception to moments of excitement and animation, the artists blur borders drawn with invented notions of authenticity and guide us through negotiations between the specificity of personhood and its abstraction into larger groups of belonging. This gathering of work embraces the wildly individualistic tumble of connections and contradictions that constitute contemporary Indigenous identities, opening a dialogue between artists, audiences, and the interconnected mesh-works woven between all our relations.

Making Models

September 6 – October 7, 2017
University of Toronto Art Centre

Outdoor Opening Reception
Wednesday, September 6, 2017, 6-8pm
Hart House Quad

Curated by Yan Wu
Graphic Design by Chris Lee
Exhibition Design by Mercury Bureau

Making Models is an exciting new project that brings together architecture and art. 9 Toronto architecture studios and artist groups have been invited to propose ideas and prototypes in model form that foster analytical, conceptual, physical and tectonic frameworks for inhabiting and constructing urban space and the public sphere. A jury will choose one model to be realized in 1:1 size on site at the Sir Daniel Wilson Quad at the University of Toronto, in dialogue with the Quads' complex network of movement, vegetation, infrastructure, furniture, and architecture.

Far and Near: The Distance(s) between Us brings together several generations of Canadian artists of Chinese descent, offering perspectives onto the Chinese Canadian community’s historical and cultural evolutions and developments. The works included in the exhibition investigate overlooked narratives by exploring notions of distancing and being distanced in relation to race, identity, sexuality and their intertwining with Chinese Canadian history.

Morning Star

September 13, 2017 – June 29, 2018
Jackman Humanities Institute

Opening Reception
Wednesday, September 13, 4-6pm
Jackman Humanities Institute

Curated by Jason Baerg and Darryn Doull

Waabanang is Ojibwe for Morning Star or the planet Venus. Morning Star has been a beacon of light, serving as a navigational entity for Indigenous Peoples for millennia. In response to the Jackman Humanities Institute’s 2017/18 annual theme, this exhibition of works by six Indigenous artists shines light on presence, visibility and agency of personal and collective dimension to renounce naïve impressions of conciliation that continue to be propagated throughout much of the settler culture across Turtle Island. By opening personal, psychic and linguistic pathways that simultaneously guide to one and lead away from another, Indigenous kinship and survivance come into sharp focus.
