Luminous, takes the dark street scenes of SoTeeOh's urban landscapes as a backdrop for the infamous one-liner face portraits of graffiti artist Anser.

11/15/2016 ROM Speaks: 11th Annual Eva Holtby Lecture on Contemporary Culture Downtown

Going Dark Since 9/11, the impulse to protect “national security” has led democratic governments to become increasingly secretive. With many of their most consequential decisions—about war, interrogation, detention, and surveillance—being made behind closed doors, democratic governments are “going dark.” Should we accept official secrecy as a necessary response to new security threats—or has official secrecy itself become a threat? With new wars abroad, and new surveillance programs at home, the question is more pressing than ever. Discover what the shift towards official secrecy means for us as a society and as individuals, and what's at stake.

11/15/2016 00:00:00 Form Follows Fiction: Art and Artists in Toronto Downtown Free

Presenting a thematic clustering of works by eighty-six artists, Form Follows Fiction is premised on the tendency of artists in this city to favour performative and allegorical procedures to articulate their sense of place. Four gestures – mapping, modelling, performing and congregating – serve as guideposts to a diverse array of artistic practices. The exhibition is a constellation of symbolic forms, or memes, that repeatedly appear in the work of artists of different generations; it presents a panorama of the blueprints that artists have drafted over many decades to give form to life in one of North America's largest cities.

The Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA)

The Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA) will create jobs, strengthen economic relations and boost Canada's trade with the world’s second-largest market. CETA is a progressive free trade agreement which covers virtually all sectors and aspects of Canada-EU trade in order to eliminate or reduce barriers. For example, prior to CETA’s entry into force, only 25 percent of EU tariff lines on Canadian goods were duty-free. Upon CETA’s entry into force, the EU will remove tariffs on 98 percent of its tariff lines. Once CETA is fully implemented, the EU will have eliminated tariffs on 99 percent of its tariff lines.

11/12/2016 Cinderella Downtown

When is a fairy tale not a fairy-tale? That is one of the questions Prokofiev set out to explore in his 1944 ballet Cinderella. And it is also a question that The National Ballet of Canada's 2004 version of the ballet asks. Choreographed by James Kudelka, the National Ballet's Cinderella utilizes the popularity and irresistible narrative pull of the original fairy tale to the fullest and both preserves and enhances its romantic, satiric and comic elements. But, at the same time, it subtly subverts the conventional rags to riches theme, the traditional idea of a young girl's search for fulfillment in simply marrying well and ascending the power structure.
