  3. Ai Weiwei takes over Berlin

    Spanning 32,300 square feet in Berlin’s Martin-Gropius-Bau, this blockbuster show traces Ai Weiwei’s latest and most controversial work to date. Most of the works are new, tracing the time since his relationship with the government went sour ahead of the 2008 Olympics. They also tend to take a more personal tone, playing up (for better or worse) the celebrity status that he has garnered, particularly since his arrest, and which has since clouded much of the judgments of his oeuvre.

  4. Celebrating Yayoi Kusama

    "My art originates from hallucinations only I can see. I translate the hallucinations and obsessional images that plague me into sculptures and paintings." - Yayoi Kusama

    A famously provocative avant-garde artist, Yayoi Kusama is best known for her works featuring psychedelic imagery that evoke themes of psychology, feminism, obsession, sex, and intense self-reflection.

    After representing Japan at the Venice Biennale in 1993, Kusama’s work received newly heightened recognition from the international art world and in 2008, Kusama became the best-selling living female artist, with works breaking record prices at auction.

    Today marks her 85th Birthday, let’s celebrate this unique and visionary artist!

  6. Burmese Spring

    With Burma largely cut off from the west during the last 50 years, the local art scene became the “Galapagos Island” of the art world, evolving in isolation and in its own directions. Now, with the improving political environment, art lovers are once again being captivated by the remarkable artistic talent that exists in this fascinating county.

    Now, Ontario’s East Gallery, in conjunction with First Canadian Place gallery, are showing a group exhibition featuring six of the leading, internationally-established painters who are working in Burma today.

    Don’t miss Burmese Spring, which runs from March 3 through April 25..
