Arcadia

You know that the name Stoppard means you’re in for an intellectually dazzling ride. In this case you’re also in for a tale of secrecy and intrigue that’s been hailed by critics as a masterpiece. Set in both 1809 and the present day, it’s a mystery wrapped up in a love story, wrapped up in a scandal. In its unraveling, Stoppard playfully zigs and zags through many realms, including mathematics, poetry, sex and gardening. A roller-coaster ride that is also one of Stoppard’s most moving plays.

011+91 | 011+92

011+91 | 011+92 is a curatorial research project that aims to initiate a critical discourse and presentation by exploring locational identity by artists, some of whom are first and second generation Canadians, who hail from South Asia. What part does a geographical divide play in notions of home, place and being?

Mississauga represents the diaspora of many cultures – an estimated 58% of citizens speak Hindi, Urdu, or Punjabi as a first language. The artists in this exhibition respond to the act of communicating to, from or about home, framing contemporary artists at the forefront of a social conversation where identity may or not be central to the work, whereas life experience and humanistic values are at the forefront. In an age of when we are everywhere at once, how can being and displacement create a homing instinct? In the Canada of tomorrow, home to an ever-increasing global diaspora and to heterogeneous, urban immigrant communities, can the hierarchical, colonial past be erased with emergent identities giving a new face to our nation? With the interface between ethnicity and the arts in Canada in the future being unpredictable, only one reality seems certain: a growing number and variety of artistic expressions of multiple and cross-cultural ethnicities comprise a strong future where a sense of home in conjunction with a connection to the new form a richer construct of self.

Past | Present

Past | Present is the first retrospective exhibition of acclaimed Canadian artist Panchal Mansaram and includes examples from all facets of his career. Tracing Mansaram’s considerable artistic output, the exhibition features more than 20 preparatory drawings, sketches, collage studies and panels relating to his early work from the 1960’s through to 2013. Mansaram was born in Mount Abu, in Rajasthan India. He studied at the Sir J.J. School of Art in Mumbai from 1954 – 1959, and from 1963-64, he attended the State Academy of Fine Arts, Amsterdam, Netherlands on a Dutch Government Fellowship. Mansaram first came into contact with the Toronto art world in the late 1970s, when he also met Marshall McLuhan, and the two formed a life-long friendship built upon ideas, art and dialogue.

The exhibition features several early pieces, among the first of Mansaram’s exhibited works, which offer a glimpse into the artist’s struggle to channel cultural commentary into layered, subversive observations of Canadian life. The exhibition also includes a selection of Mansaram’s collaborations with McLuhan. Drawing on the artist’s interest in the image, palimpsest and colour, the exhibition presents a range of artistic styles and strategies and explores how Mansaram developed dynamic new ideas within the field of digital, painting and collage.

A significant portion of the exhibition is devoted to collages, a medium that in its myriad forms has consumed the artist throughout his career. Produced between 1978 and 2011, this body of work highlights the commitment and vision of a senior artist. The exhibition also includes research material, preliminary sketches, photographs and storyboards related to the evolution of Mansaram with images, pages and publications that reveal the artist’s legacy.

XIT-RM | Alice Wang: The fallacy of misplaced concreteness

The video considers the artist’s family history in China, from her grandfather’s secret operative work for the Chinese government during WWII, with a masquerade of wealth as his cover in Hong Kong, to the violent reforms of the 1960s, and the perception of this privilege that lead to his family’s torment. Memory and history come in and out of focus, across generations. The backdrop of a Cultural Revolution set in Zhenbeibao Western Film Studio, a site of artifice, allows an interrogation of how we see history. A tour of a lens factory furthers this line of questioning, the mechanical construction of sight laid bare before us.
