Everywhere you turn there is something to buy, sniff, gnaw on, or run your finger along the sides of that has that certain smack of the real, that kind of chewy, overripe... [more]

Editor's Note: In honor of the opening of ArtSlant Toronto, we dug through our archives of Toronto reviews from the past few years. We're featuring the following review from David Yu, for its particular celebration of the Toronto scene, which remains cutting edge and experimental.   I’ve been away from the Toronto art scene for a number of years and was looking forward to revisiting the city that served as backdrop to the cultivation of my love for contemporary art. What I miss most about the T... [more]

Evidencing truths and questioning commonly held beliefs in modes that vary from reportage to activist response, the works in Material Witness offer distinctive, often critical views of current affairs and cultural memory. Goya's famous series of eighty-fiv... [more]

Though this theme has been well e... [more]
