“Face to Place,” a photo exhibition at St. Lawrence Market’s Market Gallery, is a raw and nostalgic attempt at capturing urban life in a city that’s constantly changing.
Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss. Mayor Rob Ford’s music-business mission to Austin has been a weird time. Above, a picture of the mayor and Michael Hollett, editor and publisher of Ford-hating NOW Magazine, under the Texas sun. New friends! (Hollett is also a […]
BY: Unknown LOCATION: Unknown PHOTO BY: Mark Beauchamp FIELD NOTES: These bespectacled characters sure make the wall look smarter. We don’t mean IQ smarter—it’s but a myth that glasses make people more intelligent (also, it’s a wall, so no amount of glasses-based graffiti will impact its thinking ability). We mean smarter looking. Gosh they look […]
Crash, the one-woman show by Pamela Sinha, returns to Theatre Passe Muraille to open the fall 2013 season. The unsettling and deeply personal performance was a surprise winner in the New Play category at the 2012 Doras (over the phenomenally popular Kim’s Convenience, which is now being produced for television). Those who’d seen this intense […]
Where can you find over 150 of Canada’s top performing artists under one roof? At the Sixth Annual Global Cabaret Festival, of course.

The third-annual Uma Nota Festival of Tropical Expressions is back in town, which means music lovers will get the chance to explore the sounds of Afro-Brazilian, Latin, and Caribbean performers. This multi-day event will feature artists from across the Americas and beyond, plus some local talent.
It’s early October, but you’d never know it, what with the 20-something-degree temperatures that have been messing with our internal barometers of late. But, on the bright side, this could mean we’re in store for the warmest Nuit Blanche yet—mittens and double-layers of tights be damned! This Saturday, the annual all-night contemporary art event will […]
So, first things first: The “Anthropocene” is defined by Wikipedia as “an informal geologic chronological term that serves to mark the evidence and extent of human activities that have had a significant global impact on the Earth’s ecosystems.” Ivan Jurakic and Crystal Mowry, the curators of Nuit Blanche 2013′s Romancing the Anthropocene zone, have chosen […]
Once a year, Nuit Blanche brings a massive number of people to Toronto’s downtown core to enjoy a night of amazing art. This audience comes to experience, interact with, and become an integral part of a city transformed. Every year there are people who choose to take advantage of this fantastic crowd by bringing their […]
There are only a few events on Toronto’s calendar that bring out the masses like Nuit Blanche does—and the others usually involve some kind of holiday, a procession of floats, a man dressed in a red suit, or men dressed in nothing at all. Curator Patrick Macaulay recognized Nuit Blanche as a kind of anti-parade, […]
Taking inspiration from Marcel Duchamp’s dadaist work, the Off to a flying start zone of this year’s Nuit Blanche, curated by Ami Barak, celebrates the items we see and use in our day-to-day lives. The area around City Hall will be transformed into a more whimsical (and hopefully more thoughtful) version of itself. Here are […]
Sticking to Nuit Blanche 2013′s curated projects means hitting only a fraction of the exhibits and having only a fraction of the fun. With nearly 70 independent projects scattered throughout the festival area, straying from the beaten path will give you opportunities to explore the city, to happen upon unexpected art, and to really scratch […]
Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss. Brian Gilham has created an amazing panorama of graffiti artwork on the construction hoarding next to the West Toronto Railpath. A screenshot is above, but it’s only a tiny segment of the whole thing (the entire panorama would […]
From a distance, the site of the new Toronto South Detention Centre—occupying the same land used for correctional purposes since 1887—is exactly what you’d expect the environs of a prison to look like. Most recently the address of the Mimico Correctional Centre—which officially closed its doors on December 5, 2011—the new, imposing structure at 160 […]
