09/13/2016 00:00:00 The Idea of the North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris Downtown $20 - $29

As the leader of the Group of Seven, Lawren Harris first rose to national prominence while living and painting in Toronto. The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) welcomes his paintings home this summer—following a critically acclaimed trip across the United States—with The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris. The AGO's installation of this exhibition tells a much bigger story about art in Toronto, highlighting Harris's early streetscapes, his iconic northern landscapes and his lasting imprint on Canadian art and identity. It also examines Toronto's historic Ward neighbourhood—captured by Harris in his paintings and by archival photographers—and features reflections on the city's history by several contemporary artists.

When I moved to Jimei 9 months ago, I was not familiar with the place. I got used to it after half a year. According to one of my neighbors, “Some part of Jimei is nice, some part of Jimei is disgusting”. Not for only once, when I walk along some beautiful quiet streets of Jimei, I feel the beauty of it and feel like in the heaven. Even till now  I am still not familiar with it, but when the bus drives along the bridge and I look at that place, I know I do know something about this place and it is part of my memory for ever. And just before the Chinese new year, I hear the song composed by one of the Jimei people. “最美是集美,集天下之美”.
