Don’t miss today’s Artist Studio Visit with @mirloy! This afternoon at 2:00 pm, Mirna will be taking us through a tour of her home studio and answering your questions on Instagram Live. She will also be talking about her recent project "Elegy for The Souls on Hold", a Community-engaged art project devoted to loss and grief in COVID-19 times.

The Elegy for The Souls on Hold is conceived as a new media installation that involves video mapping projection and augmented reality features to showcase our loved one's life stories in photos and griever's voices. The project exhibit aims to deliver a beautiful and unique posthumous memorial that will endure forever in grievers' memories and viewers while exposing the most tragic part of the pandemic restrictions: dying and mourning in isolation. Inspired by Jorge Manrique's Hispanic Renaissance Stanzas on the Death of his Father, this project revisits metaphors of life, memory and resilience.

Be sure to check out tomorrow’s Artist Studio Visit with @mirloy on Instagram Live. Tomorrow at 2:00 pm, Mirna will be taking us through a tour of her home studio, answering your questions, and telling us about this beautiful hammock. You can let us know what objects hold cultural significance for you by posting with the hashtag #EtobicokeCreates to be included as part of our Exploring Community Arts and Culture in Etobicoke initiative. See link in bio for more information.

“This colourful hammock was created in the small town of Tintorero (Venezuela) on a two-thread loom and pedals and woven with cotton wick thread and organic colours. It is big and heavy. We had to ship it from Venezuela within a big box and arrived four months after our landing. Since then, it is our inseparable companion during summertime. To me, as for many Venezuelan, a hammock is an essential part of my life. It connects me with my childhood memories and family. A white cotton hammock was my first sleeping cradle that mom swing while sang lullabies. I did it too with my siblings. There were always two hammocks in our backyard to play and swing or to lay down, read, talk, or escape the hot and take a nap. This hammock is home.”

Join us this Wednesday, April 14 from 9:30 am - 4:00 pm for a professional development workshop on Public Engagement and Your Collection hosted by @ontartgalleries. Executive Director Wendy Rading and Programs and Gallery Manager Akshata Naik will be discussing Bringing Art Collections to Life through Technology and presenting our upcoming Augmented Reality in the Village of Islington project.

Art galleries and museums have been notorious for being spaces where you can look but cannot touch. Housing thousands of works behind glass, institutions have been focused on preservation and collecting rather than being a space for public engagement. How can institutions engage the public in a meaningful and impactful way. This workshop will answer the questions such as, what is the balance between collection-based vs. independent programming? How can broad thematics be used to create a seasonal approach to content, and create dynamic, multiple entry points for new audiences, such as using digital to enhance and increase public interaction with artworks from their collections.

For more information and to register, please see the link in bio.

Don’t miss today’s Artist Studio Visit with @far_stepping! This afternoon at 2:00 pm, Marjan will be taking us through a tour of her home studio and answering your questions on Instagram Live.

Marjan Verstappen’s art practice involves installation, painting, drawing, photography and performance. Through these disciplines she explores biological, economic, and social interventions into natural systems, in order to understand their meanings, machinations, habits, and failures. She makes distinct bodies of work, often speculative in nature, that show us how we shape the land, how we grow and consume food, and how we live with one another.

Notable exhibitions of her artwork include Every. Now. Then: Reframing Nationhood (Art Gallery of Ontario), INSTRUMENTA II (National Gallery of Indonesia, Jakarta) Atlas of Nowhere (Ashburton Art Gallery, New Zealand) and Know The Ways (Flux Factory, NYC). Marjan grew up in New Zealand and moved to Canada in 2012.

"For my object of cultural significance I chose a hacksaw. It's one of the first tools I brought when I moved to Canada because I didn't have much and I needed a tool with diverse utility: something I could use on lots of different things. Most of my art projects begin with experimenting with materials, seeing how they respond to pressure, to hacking. When I make my art I'm constantly learning, I'm always in the position of the non-expert, the hack. With time and patience you can cut through anything with a hacksaw. It's a means of forced entry and a means of escape."

You can let us know what objects hold cultural significance for you by posting with the hashtag #EtobicokeCreates to be included as part of our Exploring Community Arts and Culture in Etobicoke initiative. See the link in bio for more information.

Don’t miss today’s Artist Studio Visit with @sunainaart97! This afternoon at 2:00 pm, Sunaina will be taking us through a tour of her home studio and answering your questions on Instagram Live.

Sunaina Khandelwal is a multimedia artist from India and has graduated with an MA in Fine Art from the University of the Arts London, UK. She is residing in Toronto and her practice explores the meaning of colour within the western art world. Khandelwal believes that colour is perceived merely as a picture making tool whilst the significance of its pre-existing histories are overlooked. As a result, her work is concerned with how the pigments we painters use today are contemporary re-enactments of their historic selves by manifesting an essence of a cultural past that is embedded within their materiality.

Be sure to check out tomorrow’s Artist Studio Visit with @sunainaart97 on Instagram Live. Tomorrow at 2:00 pm, Sunaina will be taking us through a tour of her home studio, answering your questions, and telling us about her Mangalsutra.

“This is a Mangalsutra (auspicious thread) and I hold an emotional connection with it since the necklace was given to me by my Mother and Father on my wedding day. My husband and I were unable to have a traditional Indian wedding and this piece of jewellery made me feel deeply connected to my cultural roots, whilst reminding me of the homely memories that were made out of a simple occasion. Made from a string of black and gold beads, the Mangalsutra is commonly used in the Indian culture as a piece of bridal jewellery that signifies an auspicious bond between the husband and wife. The husband puts the necklace on his wife in order to symbolise a protected and happy marriage.”

Mixed media on canvas

2020

David Chinyama is a Toronto based multi-disciplinary visual artist whose work is inspired by color, form, movement and texture. His work is a representation of personal fascinations and experiences often shaped by his upbringing and cultural memories of different African traditions. Working in multimedia, he explores subject matters centered upon aspects of identity, socio-economic, political and religious connotations. These compositions are made out of found fabrics and recycled fibers that are cut, stitched and painted together on canvas to form varying patterns and shapes. His practice can best be described as a form of adaptation and response to influences of various cultures within different urban settings. Working in a spontaneous approach, he experiments with the use of unfamiliar materials on how they relate to each other when placed in different frames that assign to them a new function.
