Given the current situation I think that now is the time for me to start this off. I’ve had it for a while, and I’ve been waiting for the right moment to get it out and give it a try. That moment is now.
Before going to this exhibition I didn’t know very much at all about these artists or the movement for that matter. Whilst this was a relatively small exhibition it was really well described and curated, and the audio guide was very helpful too.
This is a beautiful place. I was only in Toronto for a few days but this was on the top of my list of my places to go. My visit was back in July and it was really hot and humid, which was another great reason to go to the gallery as it has great air con!
I wasn’t really interested in the European art there, and much keener to see that First Nation art on show. I wasn’t disappointed. There are some stunning pieces there, and the volunteer guide who showed a group of us around was very good and had a lot of information on hand.
The Rebecca Belmore exhibition was stunning, and at times, disturbing. Whilst I can’t say that I enjoyed all of her work, I can say that it gave me more insight into First Nation issues.
NinerPaint was a totally amazing app for Palm OS. It was one of the best Palm OS apps around. Now it’s coming to iOS, and, it’s coming back to Palm OS as well. This is brilliant news. As soon as it’s available I’ll let you know.
