Minotaur

On the Mainstage | Mar. 24 – Apr. 13, 2014 | Grades 4-8.

The award-winning playwright of The Monster Under the Bed has fused Greek mythology and modern themes to create a high-stakes adventure story. Freddie, a 12 year-old boy, receives urgent, cryptic text messages from his soldier Dad in an unnamed, war-torn country. While he attempts to decipher these messages, an Ogre and the Queen of Minos appear in his backyard, dragging him into the past in the role of Theseus, whose destiny was to slay the Minotaur and save his father, King Aegeus. Freddie accepts the quest believing it is the only way he can help his Dad, who is trapped in a foreign war with no way out.

An “Exquisite Corpse”: Poetry and Chance in Surrealist Drawings

October 26, 2013 – April 13, 2014.

Esther and Arthur Gelber Treasury.

The focus of this installation is a rare cadavre exquis (exquisite corpse) drawing, a remarkable new AGO acquisition made collaboratively by several major Surrealist artists. The creation of cadavre exquis drawings began in the 1920s as a parlour game. One artist made marks on a piece of paper, covered that section, and then passed the paper to the next person. As the paper travelled around the room, multiple artists made additions. The Surrealists were astounded by the powerful results of this activity, which reinforced their belief in “automatism,” the idea that works of art could be produced as expressions of the subconscious, the irrational and dreams. Many artists incorporated automatist approaches into their artistic practices.

Dressing for Downton: Costumes from Downton Abbey

The City of Toronto’s Spadina Museum, in partnership with VisionTV/ZoomerMedia, proudly present the Canadian premiere of Dressing for Downton: Costumes from Downton Abbey, March 11 to April 13, 2014.

The exhibition features costumes and photographs from the series, Downton- themed tours and teas. The tour takes visitors through the museum’s family and servants’ spaces and links the characters and events from the TV show to real Toronto history.

Twenty authentic Downton Abbey costumes from Seasons 1 to 3 have been borrowed from Cosprop, Ltd., the London-based costume house that designs and creates the beautiful clothing worn by the cast of the television show. Nine of the costumes have accompanying hats, from Lady Sybil’s nurse’s scarf, to Lady Cora’s wide-brimmed picture hat, to Lady Mary’s cloche worn with her pregnancy suit. The costumes are all historically accurate, some made entirely of new textiles, and others using a mix of new and vintage fabrics.

Two ticket options are available: Exhibit and Tour; or Exhibit, Tea and Tour. The museum is open from Tuesday to Sunday, and is closed Mondays. Tickets for this exhibition are available for purchase online at www.spadinamuseum.streamintickets.com

Form, Colour, Line

Form, colour and line are three of the most basic elements of a work of art that can be perceived by the senses, but they also offer a rich ground for breaking boundaries and for artists to explore new ideas by departing from convention. Natasha Gouveia and Laura Marotta make bold statements about colour, most notably in their critique of it, and through their process showcase at once intellectual and playful approaches to the constraints of line and form. Where noted abstract painter Ellsworth Kelly envisioned his seminal monograph Line Form Colour as an “an alphabet of plastic pictorial elements,” Form, Colour, Line picks up this notion and carries it forward, into three dimensions and away from traditionally “masculine” forms of minimalism.
