So FUCKING HARPER changed citizenship law so that people who are born in Canada have a different citizenship status than those who immigrated here or came as refugees. Among other things, people who came to Canada and then got their citizenship can still be deported, regardless of their status as Canadians. Literally how absolutely fucked up is that?!
Huck Finn goes up to the counter and orders a latte, a drink he used to hate. While he’s drinking it, he realizes that he likes it after all, and that he’s been wrong all along about lattes. When he finishes it, however, he forgets his life-changing lesson and lights out for the territories.
This Is Not A Toy, curated by John Wee Tom and DX Associate Curator Sara Nickelson with Guest Curator Pharrell Williams, is the world’s first exhibition featuring a collection of contemporary sculptures, figurines and artworks created by artists including Takashi Murakami, KAWS, FriendsWithYou, Coarse, Huck Gee, and Frank Kozik.
The exhibition explores the conceptual toy – a form made solely as an expression of an aesthetic, concept or idea – as an art and design object as well as a contemporary cultural signifier. On display until May 19, visitors dive headfirst into the realm of designer toys as the Exhibition Hall is transformed into a vibrant and whimsical environment, filled with forms ranging from tiny trinkets to enormous free-standing pieces.
