Stunning views of New Mexico by Adams, as well as nudes and portraits of O’Keeffe by Stieglitz, are additional highlights of this breathtaking artistic journey.

Manasie Akpaliapik was born in 1955 in a hunting camp near Ikpiarjuk (Arctic Bay), Nunavut, on north Baffin Island. He spent his youth in Arctic Bay, relocated to Montreal, then settled in Toronto where he created all of these carvings. Now based in Ottawa and Montreal, Manasie is known for his animated and ambitious sculptures that sympathetically utilize the unique material and structure of bone, ivory and stone. Deeply connected to the culture and traditions of the Arctic, his works reflect a concern for the vulnerability of his homeland. They offer unflinching depictions of social ills that have impacted northern communities and reflect the belief that humans must live in balance with and respect all living things.
Organized by the Art Gallery of Ontario. This exhibition is included with general admission.
What's in a name, especially when that name is Canada? What images come to mind? What histories? And above all, who gets to shape and tell these histories? With his new series of works, Mark Lewis engages in a filmic meditation on the idea that is Canada, staging encounters between the camera and the built and natural environments, where the latter becomes the subject of the films as well as the background against which human presence is placed.
As always with Lewis's moving image work, the camera is a character itself, guiding the viewer's inquisitive gaze while creating dynamic relationships revelatory of the subject under consideration.
