The Canadian Art School Hop is an important youth initiative aimed at providing education and outreach to Toronto’s secondary-school students. In the face of reduced funding for extracurricular activities and diminished focus on art education in public schools, this free half-day program offers a unique opportunity for a younger generation to participate in the cultural landscape of Toronto.

Since 2003, this semi-annual program has hosted an ever-increasing number of students (approximately 1,500) at Toronto studios and galleries on tours led by local artists and curators. The program provides free bus transportation, pays for artists and curators to lead discussions with students, and gifts each participant with a current issue of Canadian Art and a sketchbook to continue their explorations.

In this program, participating students are exposed to different artistic practices from diverse cultural backgrounds. They visit commercial galleries and artist-run spaces, and they meet professional artists and curators. The program encourages a free exchange of ideas about art, culture and society, and it establishes a historical context for approaching contemporary art practices.

School Hop gives priority and vital program access to the most needy schools in the region, with more than half of the participating Greater Toronto Area schools coming from low-income neighbourhoods or including at-risk youth. Through continuous feedback from teachers and galleries, we are constantly improving the program, its accessibility and its ability to meet crucial needs of the community.

Spring 2016 School Hop Dates

Images Festival: April 19 and 20, 2016

Contact Photography Festival: May 3, 4, 5 and 6, 2016

To register your class for a School Hop, fill out our online registration form.

Apply by April 2.

The post Call for Applications: 2016 Editorial Residency appeared first on Canadian Art.

]]>
We are now accepting applications for the 2016 Canadian Art Foundation Editorial Residency.

The residency is a national prize awarded annually to a current undergraduate, graduate or other post-secondary student with an interest in developing expertise in the realm of professional art-magazine publishing.

Founded in 2004, the prize offers an 11-week summer residency at Canadian Art, along with a $7,000 prize. The winner will hone writing and editing skills while learning production procedures for online and print media at Canadian Art.

This introduction to art-magazine publishing and writing is intended to foster new editorial and critical talent, and to provide hands-on experience working in the field.

Past residents have gone on to work for e-flux, Afterall, the Banff Centre, Blouin Artinfo and MOMUS.

The 2015 residency was won by Jaclyn Bruneau, who said of her experience:

“The Canadian Art Editorial Residency gave me a birds-eye view of the nation’s artistic practices, providing new insight into movements, trends, regional traits and Canada’s bearing in the global conversation. Canadian Art’s editorial team is brilliant, specialized and supportive. They invited me into their practices as much as having become part of mine and put forth a stimulating set of challenges and opportunities. It was invaluable to get acquainted with the pulse of an arts publication and follow through lines in both in print and online. I walked away with a fresh toolkit for thinking about writing, editing and collaborating and an undying devotion to see exhibitions.”

To apply, prepare a 500-word review of a contemporary-art exhibition, a list of titles of recent academic and/or professional writing on art, a cover letter, and a one-page CV (PDF files only).

Send these four items (review, list, cover letter and CV) to residency@canadianart.ca by 5 p.m. EDT on Saturday, April 2, 2016.

Canadian Art kicks off this year’s International Artists Series with an exclusive conversation on visual art between Man Booker Prize–winning British author Julian Barnes and curator and critic Sarah Milroy.

Julian Barnes is any gallery-goer’s dream docent. Celebrated for his unselfconscious and individual approach to art criticism, Barnes tells stories about pictures with lucidity and intimacy. In conversation with acclaimed critic and curator Sarah Milroy, Barnes will share his accessible approach to looking at art—an authentic, intellectual and individual one in the age of the blockbuster exhibition. His dazzling new collection of art criticism, Keeping an Eye Open, draws on images, histories, opinion and biography—a series of compelling essays about art by one of today’s most acclaimed novelists.

“It is a rare picture which stuns, or argues, us into silence. And if one does, it is only a short time before we want to explain and understand the very silence into which we have been plunged.”—Julian Barnes, Keeping an Eye Open

JULIAN BARNES is the author of 20 previous books, including, most recently, Keeping an Eye Open: Essays on Art. He has received the Man Booker Prize, the Somerset Maugham Award, the Geoffrey Faber Memorial Prize, the David Cohen Prize for Literature and the E.M. Forster Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters; in France, the Prix Médicis and the Prix Femina; in Austria, the State Prize for European Literature. In 2004 he was named Commandeur de l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French Ministry of Culture. His work has been translated into more than 40 languages. He lives in London, England.

SARAH MILROY is a Toronto writer and curator. She is the former editor and publisher of Canadian Art (from 1991 to 1996), and served as chief art critic of the Globe and Mail (2001 to 2010). Milroy has contributed scholarly essays to many museum catalogues, including publications on Canadian artists Greg Curnoe, Jack Chambers, Gathie Falk and Mary Pratt. In 2015, Milroy presented her exhibition “From the Forest to the Sea: Emily Carr in British Columbia”—at the Dulwich Picture Gallery in London, England, and the Art Gallery of Ontario. She is currently at work on an exhibition of British modernist painter Vanessa Bell, scheduled to open in February 2017, as well as an exhibition on Canadian artist David Milne for London in 2018.

Taryn Simon
‘s work results from rigorous research and investigation into the power and structure of secrecy and the precarious nature of survival. Combining photography, text and graphic design, her conceptual projects address the production and circulation of knowledge and the politics of representation. Simon’s images and texts reveal the invisible space between language and the visual world—a space in which multiple truths and fantasies are constructed, and where translation and disorientation continually occur. In her work, history—its classifications, its contents—seems the stuff of projection.

Simon was born in New York, where she currently lives and works. Her work was most recently shown in a solo exhibition at the Jeu de Paume in Paris. She is also a Guggenheim Fellow.

Hito Steyerl‘s video installation Factory of the Sun—a spoof video game that includes a Deutsche Bank predator drone and a YouTube dance star—was one of the most talked about works at this year’s Venice Biennale. Steyerl is a leading voice in the age of mass surveillance and omnipresent media technology. One of the most critically acclaimed artists in the field of video, she is a distinguished writer and speaker whose practice reveals our shared implication in the battlefield of the image.

Born in Munich, Germany, Steyerl is currently a professor of New Media at the Berlin University of the Arts. Her work has been shown internationally, with a recent survey exhibition at Artists Space in New York.

Janice Kerbel is internationally renowned for her playful and inventive use of existing systems of information to create what she terms “strategies of deception.” Her work takes the form of elaborate instructions, theatrical and radio plays, detective stories, maps and scientific diagrams, all of which turn familiar narrative formats into new and fantastical realities. From producing an exhaustively researched manual for robbing a branch of a London Bank for Bank Job in 1999 to her “play for stage lights” as the sole means to present a dramatic narrative, Kerbel will have you wondering what is blank, what is missing and what needs to be filled in.

Kerbel was born in Toronto, and lives and works in London, UK, where she also teaches at Goldsmiths College. She has exhibited internationally, and is currently nominated for the 2015 Turner Prize.

Galerie Hop Montréal : samedi 25 avril 2015

De l’art. Des présentations. Des visites.

Click here for the English Montreal Hop page.

** Nous n’acceptons malheureusement plus les inscriptions car les autobus-navettes sont pleins. Vous êtes invités à vous joindre au groupe au premier arrêt des visites.

Rejoignez-nous pour Galerie Hop Montréal, organisée par la Canadian Art Foundation, en partenariat avec RBC.

Les visites seront guidées en français et en anglais par des écrivains, des conservateurs et des critiques. Les guides se pencheront sur les thématiques des expositions de chaque galerie et institution artistique visitée, afin de faire découvrir aux participants les œuvres d’art de chaque espace d’une manière enrichissante et conviviale.

Cette année, Galerie Hop Montréal a lieu conjointement avec la foire Papier15. Nous tiendrons un stand à Papier15, où vous pourrez en apprendre davantage sur tous les événements de Hop MTL. Le départ des visites et des présentations se fera depuis la foire.

Lors de Galerie Hop Montréal, rencontrez les artistes et les experts en art associés au projet Artistes émergents RBC. Chaque arrêt affilié est signalé par un astérisque.

Table ronde : Œuvres sur papier, œuvres en cours
En anglais
De 12 h à 13 h
Papier15, Complexe de Gaspé, 5445, avenue de Gaspé

Pendant une grande partie de l’histoire de l’art, les œuvres sur papier ont été considérées comme des objets préparatoires, plutôt que des produits finis. Cette présentation, animée par Caoimhe Morgan-Feir, rédactrice intérimaire de la version en ligne de Canadian Art, se penchera sur les versions contemporaines du caractère provisoire du papier. Les photographies non traitées, les images par addition et les croquis effacés d’aujourd’hui renferment-ils des indices sur l’histoire et le potentiel de cette forme d’art?

Visites et présentations
de 13 h 30 à 17 h
Différents lieux à Montréal

Prenez part à une visite guidée des nombreuses galeries et institutions artistiques montréalaises. À chaque arrêt, un expert en art vous présentera l’exposition à l’affiche. Les visites se dérouleront en français et en anglais.

Fête de clôture
De 17 h 30 à 19 h

Dazibao, 109–5455, avenue de Gaspé

Galerie Hop Montréal s’achèvera par la fête de clôture de Canadian Art. Nous présenterons le numéro de printemps 2015 de la revue, tandis que la collaboratrice Isa Tousignant expliquera comment sa collaboration avec BGL s’est déroulée dans le cadre de ce numéro et Marc-Antoine K. Phaneuf partagera son expérience en tant que sujet d’un article. À l’occasion de Galerie Hop Montréal, les abonnements seront proposés à un tarif préférentiel.

Micah Lexier: Finder Keeper
Directors: Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier

Micah Lexier: Finder Keeper is a short film about artist Micah Lexier’s ongoing cardboard-collecting project, which began in the late 1990s. “There is no story behind the collecting—it was just that I had always taken photos of things like this, and one day I got up the nerve to go through the garbage and cut out those things I wanted. I think it had to do with getting older and realizing that no one cares what you do, so you might as well do what you want. I wanted to remember these things, so I started taking them home.” (ML)

The film is co-directed by Jennifer Baichwal and Nick de Pencier and produced by Mercury Films, in consultation with Sarah Milroy. It was made possible with a grant from Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts and is a prototype for a series of short films on Canadian visual artists.

This short film will be screened before each screening during the Reel Artists Film Festival.

The RBC Canadian Painting Competition, established in 1999, is produced with the expertise of the Canadian Art Foundation. The competition seeks to support and nurture the next generation of Canadian artists by providing them with a forum to display their talents to the country. Finalists are selected by three regional juries, comprised of experienced gallery directors, artists, curators and industry leaders. Jurors choose five paintings from each of the three regions, narrowing down the selection to 15 finalists.

The three juries convene for a two-day deliberation, and determine one national winner and two honourable mentions from the shortlist. The national winner receives a purchase prize of $25,000, the two honourable mentions each receive $15,000 and the remaining 12 finalists each receive $2,500.

The top three works become part of the RBC Corporate Collection, which holds more than 4,000 works of art collected over the past century.
