In 1957 an international competition was held for a design of a new city hall. A total of 520 designs were received from 42 different countries. The winner of the competition was Finnish architect Viljo Revell. In 1965 Toronto's fourth city hall opened and still serves as the home of the city's council. The 27 storey east tower and the 20 storey west tower surround the saucer shaped council chamber. The saddest part of the history of our current city hall is that Revell died of a heart attack at 5... [more]

Like a fault line in the surface of appearances, photo collage opens up in periods of social stress and political obfuscation. In the 1880s, the playful cut and paste of Victorian albums betrayed a skepticism about photography’s ability to sustain memory and maintain the connection to a tradition that technology was rapidly effacing.
In the 1920s and ‘30s, collage mobilized images against themselves, recombining th... [more]

Licensing art has become a very big business indeed - for some. But it's one that as artists we all need to pay careful attention to, as it can so easily become overwhelming and leave you wondering if you've been taken advantage of while innocently attempting to advance your career. This is actually the second time I've encountered this type of licensing dilemma, but on this occasion the stakes were considerably higher, so much more dilemmery, if you will. A couple of years ago when the first... [more]

Mungo Thompson fancies himself clever. He thinks that public affirmations of private struggle are curious, and can’t wrap his pretty little middle class head around the idea that they might be empowering.
He likes Bruce Nauman’s neon spiral form… he likes the idea that it takes up a commercial vehicle to advertise non-commodity slogan. He thought it would be cute to rifle through self-help books and AA 12-step guides, pick out phrases, and pay somebody to fabricate neon spir... [more]
“123 Kartal-Beşiktaş” is the name for the bus line which ended its 30-year adventure upon being cancelled in 2005. As a result of its route, it was a bus line frequented by middle class Istanbulites such as students, workers, bankers, teachers.
According to the theories of the sociologist Jürgen Habermas, IETT bus corresponds to the “Sociability” model. Intercommunication within the bus is both existent and non-existent. Travellers establish a dialogue or make an eye... [more]
