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.

Struggle & Story: Canada in Print - Fisher Library Sesquicentennial Exhibition

120 St. George Street, Toronto, ON

The documents in this exhibition – manuscripts, printed books, engravings, and photographs – tell the story behind the making of a nation and the hope that is a constituent part of our national character – a character born as a result of struggle. Since that character is partially determined by what we are not – neither European nor American – these documents also reflect our ongoing endeavour to define ourselves for ourselves. In the 150 years since Confederation, much has indeed changed, but much remains very much the same. We are still a nation of immigrants, a place where compromise and accommodation are the keys to our prosperity and stability, making us the envy of so many other less fortunate places on the planet.

Tirgan Festival

235 Queens Quay West Toronto, Ontario Canada M5J 2G8

Perhaps the singular characteristic that distinguishes Persians from other ancient cultures at the dawn of civilization is the nomadic nature of a multicultural, pluralist society that culminated in the flatland of Iran. Benevolence, the unifying and principal thesis underlying the ancient cylinder of Cyrus the Great, heralded a major turning point for humanity. The elegant simplicity of Benevolence was the essential currency to help small, nomadic tribes in their struggle for survival. Good thoughts that would lead to good utterances to achieve good deeds. Tirgan celebrates this historical tradition and the richness and diversity of Iranian culture.

Belle and Sebastian

1 Front Street East, Toronto, ON M5E 1B2

The best pop groups want to change the world. They want to leave an imprint that no one forgets, to do more than check out as a minor statistic in the Guinness Book of Hit Singles. They want to change the world of pop, and to engage with the politics of pop. Belle & Sebastian have re-invented the pop festival; they signed to a tiny independent label but still beat Steps to a BRIT, before sweeping into the Top 40, then the Top 20. They’ve brought their lost sixties heroine, Evie Sands, over to play a show in Glasgow. They’ve sold out a concert at the Hollywood Bowl. And, in 2014, they cut an album – their ninth – called Girls in Peacetime Want to Dance, that blends electro-glide, baroque balladry, and giant-sized Europop hooks. They deserve several accolades, each of which are rare for any band in 2017 – Belle & Sebastian are unique, unpredictable, and fiercely loved.
