The Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) hosts Mesopotamia in its premiere North American engagement from June 22, 2013 to January 5, 2014. The internationally touring exhibition of the ancient civilization is presented in Toronto by the British Museum in collaboration with the ROM.

More than 3,000 years of accomplishments by the civilization are explored in the exhibition. Widely credited with the invention or development of writing, long-distance communication, law, trade networks, and the first empires, Mesopotamian society also launched and advanced literature and sophisticated art, concurrently with great intellectual, spiritual, and scientific advances. These achievements still influence us today.

Mesopotamia showcases more than 170 priceless objects from the eminent collections of the British Museum. These artifacts, most never before seen in Canada, are augmented by those from the ROM’s own renowned collections and other leading institutions, including the University of Chicago Oriental Institute Museum, the University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (Penn Museum, Philadelphia), and the Detroit Institute of Arts. Presented in a series of well-defined themes, the exhibition features an outstanding selection of artifacts: stunning jewellery, dramatic stone sculptures, and impressive wall reliefs.

Chinese Portraits of the Ming and Qing Dynasties (1368 – 1911)

The tradition of hosting highly visual exhibitions in the Herman Herzog Levy Gallery at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) continues with Faces to Remember: Chinese Portraits of the Ming and Qing Dynasties (1368 – 1911). On display at the ROM from May 18, 2013 to February 23, 2014, Faces to Remember features Chinese portraits created during the Ming and Qing dynasties, and comes from the renowned collections of the Museum’s Far Eastern section.

Showcasing a culturally important, but often-overlooked aspect of Chinese art and culture, the exhibition’s portraits are astonishing in their detail and embedded symbolism. The visual appeal of the exhibition’s 25 works – some remarkably large – is enhanced by a number of sartorial and personal accessories, objects carefully selected for their resemblance to those seen in the paintings.

Dr. Ka Bo Tsang, ROM Assistant Curator, Chinese Pictorial Arts, is the exhibition’s curator. She explains, “Portraits are a way to commemorate people, whether known or unknown to us. The portraits displayed in the exhibition, as well as the personal accessories, provide us with a better understanding of the Chinese people of the past, their aspirations and moral values.”

Kenojuak Ashevak: In Memoriam

September 28, 2013 – June 2014.

Isadore and Rosalie Sharp gallery.

With the passing of senior Inuit artist Kenojuak Ashevak in 2013, the Canadian cultural landscape has been significantly diminished. Over a long and influential career, Kenojuak produced innovative work that inspired her peers as well as younger generations of artists. Her visionary imagery drew on personal experience and reflected deep connections to family, community and her surroundings. Kenojuak’s lyrical animal forms remain, for many, absolutely central to the Canadian story.

Organized by Art Gallery of Ontario.
