Hey! Modern Art & Pop Culture
Our mission is to provide a resilient platform to publicize and promote revolutionary theory and action. I decided to focus my research on the architecture of the schools as it is an aspect of the schools that has long lasting effects even after they close down and it is a constant for all of the schools, thus providing a criterion to compare and contrast all 48 schools in my project. Architecture was also the most reliable aspect of schools in terms of finding data, as the archives of a lot of the schools have been lost or destroyed throughout the years.

Our mission is to provide an excellent education for our students within a stimulating learning environment that will enhance their development and potential for success in society. With the most beautiful campus in Quebec, as well as unrivalled student services, John Abbott College is the ideal setting for your post-secondary or continuing education. In my experience, that business has been a store specializing in unflavoured rice cakes and saltines. But at the last moment a Korean film came along that impressed me with its personality and charm, that being the period actioner Kundo. We believe in strength of global idea sharing and the power of education, so we work and develop the ReadkonG © to help people all over the world to find the answers and share the ideas they are interested in. Narrative seen in this way moves towards encompassing the heterogeneity of knowledge.
Here’s to hoping fetishists don’t wait another half-century before they can live in peace and bondage. And, it unfortunately needs to be said, at no time was the integrity of the RCMP compromised. Because there are fetishists everywhere in society—right now—doing their jobs just fine. The media, instead of questioning the legitimacy of the claims made against the officer, grants almost all of its resources to perpetuating lies and misinformation based on long-outdated values. Adding to the fun and debauchery, DeAnne chooses an audience member at each show to give “sweet life treatment” to for an extra special experience. She’s leaving the details of what this all entails to our imaginations, but stresses that it’s not a bad thing to sit in the front row. As if you weren’t already partied out, there’s a full-on, 10-hour long dance party to close the festival on Sunday. Starting at 2pm at the Grand Place, this non-stop house music marathon features the likes of Spanish superstar DJ duo CHUS & CEBALLOS and celebrity remixer and producer David Morales.
In doing so, these bonds that transcended the film inadvertently inspired Hsiung to courageously break her own silence of childhood sexual abuse and while filming her case went to court. Several of the projects involved game theory, hypertext treatments and other interactive or activated text-based approaches. Sam Strong, our resident expert in this area helped students resolve technical issues in the mechanics of code writing and site design. Sam’s knowledge of web-development helped the students push the boundaries and potentials in web-art and text-based approaches. Sam’s experience, ciufeministnetwork.weebly.com skill, and personal philosophy of code writing practice allowed the students to find ways to tell and understand the stories they were working with as they explored old and new digital territories, interfaces and innovative approaches. For the past five years, filmmaker Tiffany Hsiung has been working tirelesslyon a National Film Board feature documentary about these women and their stories entitledThe Apology. When it comes to art intersecting with activism and politics, a lot happened last month.
Workshop: Queerer Than Queer @ Qaf 2021workshop: Queerer Than Queer @ Qaf 2021
Just as Toronto Pride was forced to backtrack, Fierté needs to be forced to take a stand against a government that is trampling the rights of others in the name of “democracy and citizenship”. Any organization which claims to represent people historically marginalized by governments and police must not stand idly by while regressive laws are enacted against fellow citizens. Long-gone are the days when the parade was a political act of asserting your right to live as you are, free from discrimination. As mainstream acceptance of gays grew—and with it a larger cash payout—Fierté was able to cut itself off from the very roots on which it was founded.
- “They wanted to survive, they wanted to thrive and they would do that by any means necessary.”
- With gender expression holograms, musical visions, and stories of our queer descendants, this is a night of performance and visual art exploring queer futures, utopias, and dystopias that resist assimilation and explore the great queer unknown.
- She believed we as Black Canadians have stories to tell about ourselves and relentlessly created spaces in which we could celebrate our joys.
Elisha holds a Masters of Fine Arts in Criticism and Curatorial Practice at OCAD University and a Masters in English Literature from the University of Toronto. From photography and video to sculpture, the selected artists work in a range of media and draw on various creative practices, such as upcycling, auto-ethnography and appropriation. Exploring themes of displacement, immigration and diaspora, the artists use irony, humor and experimentation to navigate between public and self-representation, national and global identity, the familiar and the unfamiliar.
