Art and Innovation: Traditional Arctic Footwear

327 Bloor Street West

At the top of the world, the Arctic seems harsh and inhospitable, yet over forty distinct culture groups have thrived there for centuries. Among the most beautiful and innovative is the diverse footwear and clothing created to meet environmental challenges and express culture meanings. Drawing from the BSM's extensive circumpolar holdings and building upon information gathered during the Museum-sponsored field research trips to all Arctic nations, Art and Innovation showcases a vast variety of footwear, garments and tools, highlighting the artistry and ingenuity of the makers, and revealing different cultural identities, crafting techniques and spiritual meanings.

Eaton's Goes to War: Family, Memory & Meaning

55 John Street

The First World War transformed Canada. During that war, 3,327 Eaton's employees enlisted to fight. Each time one of them was shipped overseas, a photo was displayed prominently in the Toronto store just steps from Mackenzie House. 2,000 of these portraits survived and have become part of the T. Eaton Company records at the Archives of Ontario. In commemoration of Canada's 150th birthday, Mackenzie House staff have been actively searching out accounts of the lives of these men and urging the public to come forward to share their stories of the soldiers with us. Who were these men and their families? Come to our exhibit and find out. This exhibit is presented as part of TO Canada with Love, the City of Toronto's year-long program of celebrations, commemorations and exhibitions honouring Canada's 150th birthday.

Maple Leaf Forever: Toronto's Take on a National Symbol

100 Queen Street West

Graphic Liberation of Gender: Eiko Ishioka Poster Exhibition

2 Bloor Street E

Although the late Eiko Ishioka (1938-2012) established her fame as a designer in films in North America, she was also an art director and graphic designer in Tokyo before she moved to New York City in 1980. Her achievements in graphic design had impact and influence from the viewpoint of gender history in Japan. Since the establishment of her own independent studio in 1970, her design fully blossomed, particularly in her works for PARCO, a chain of shopping complexes. In these image-inspiring poster works, women do not dress to please men any more. Self-awareness of womanhood was called up by the posters. When women were aware of the beauties of their own identities, they positioned themselves much closer to the liberation of their gender.

Les Zinspirés: six degrees of separation

There's a popular theory that says six steps connect all living things to one another. Theatre tells us that words can bridge the distances that separate us. As vehicles of emotions and thoughts, no matter how brutal, disjointed or oddball, they communicate our vision of the world ; and bring us closer to each other. Five young authors have set out to “bridge the gaps” in this sixth instalment of Les Zinspirés. Director Chanda Gibson returns to orchestrate this production of texts developed through a competition coordinated by Pierre Simpson. Show in French with English Surtitles available

Le Menteur (The Liar)

New to Paris, Young Dorante is immediately lifted into a world of gallantry and prestige. Intoxicated by this new environment, he invents a fictitious identity. But a misunderstanding about two young women’s names, Lucrèce and Clarice, together with his father’s wish that he marry one of the two, leads to a tangled web, in which truth and lies are lost in fantasy. A baroque comedy by Corneille, Le Menteur invites us to reflect on the role truth and lies play in social interactions. The play highlights the strange peculiarities of the young Parisians living in the golden era of the 17 th century. With humour and subtlety, this timeless classic offers lively language of rare virtuosity. Show in French with English Surtitles available
