When you put perfectly cooked slices of Indian-spiced lamb into sandwich form with pickled eggplant chutney, housemade paneer and watercress ($14) you get a lambwich so delicious it makes naan bread cry.
Join us on June 28 between 7-10pm for the opening reception of our 3rd annual Pride exhibition That’s So Gay. Exploring notions of queer gender identity and objectification through many diverse lenses, here’s a look at Kyle Lasky whose work is featured at That’s So Gay on the 3rd and 4th floors.
Kyle Lasky is a Toronto-based artist studying Photography at Ryerson University with a background in Film, Video and Integrated Media from Emily Carr. Major themes found throughout Kyle’s work include: gender, identity, wholesomeness and overall awesomeness.
Jonathan McCabe’s Into the Colourflow
Three processes interact to make this animation. A spontaneous differentiation due to a multi-scale Turing instability causes the development of dots and lines of various colors. Each color is also a movement, leading to a compressible flow which smears and obliterates the dots and lines. The third process is an overall exponential growth or inflation. Small structures expand, and the Turing instability causes sub-structures to form.
Antoine Morris is one of the founders and principals of The Practice of Everyday Design, which was started in 2009 to engage in installation art, product design, and building design. The Practice is committed to forming new design opportunities by merging seemingly irreconcilable ideas. A strong conceptual framework forms the foundation for their explorations in design, each piece stemming from a simple idea or story then taking on a life of its own.
Here are his top picks of local happenings:
1. Taking advantage of his membership, Antoine heads to AGO pretty much every Sunday and likes to think of it as an extension of his living room. Him and his girlfriend recommend choosing a couple of rooms to wander through, never too many, and then ending up at the upper cafe with a couple of good books.
2. “Getting out to the island is pretty unbeatable. Even if just for a couple of hours, I instantly feel like I’ve just gone on vacation.” And we tend to agree.
3. Karaoke in Koreatown. Antoine suggests any of the free places as the main event, or the postscript to a long and eventful evening.
