Into the colourful air – En los vivos colores del aire
From September 29 to October 11
Opening exhibition of the 23rd Edition of the Festival of Images & Words: Shared Spaces: Ibero-Pan-American Connections
Daniel Tomasini, artist from Uruguay
Opening reception: September 29 from 6:30 pm to 9:00 pm
Any Tomasini painting is intended to embody a pure expression of colour aiming to spark the spectators’ emotions. His half-abstract style, inspired by Canadian forests in autumn, involves using a spatula to intuitively apply thick layers of colour. The sensation inspired by colour guides him in centering the spectator’s attention on the world of nature. For Tomasini, art is the product of emotion and sensitivity, and comes from the heart. He creates a dialogue to be shared with people from all around the world.
Presented by the Cultural Celebration of the Spanish Language (CCIE) in collaboration with Ibero-American Consular Corps.
From October 21st to November 22nd
Opening: October 21st from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm
Saturday November 1st from 11:30am to 1pm: Artistic brunch
Conversation between Philippe Blanchard and Geneviève Thauvette, a young up-and-coming professional artist based in Toronto and member of the programming committee of Le LABO.
For this new exhibition, Philippe Blanchard continues his explorations using computer-controlled lighting and sculptures made out of screen prints to generate the illusion of movement and to explore animation as an installation medium. Two new works will be presented: a room-sized sculptural installation and a collage imbedded in the wall, both inspired by architectural structures relating to light or fire.
Presented by: Le Labo – Toronto’s Francophone Media Arts Centre.
Supported by: Trillium Foundation, Ontario Arts Council, oronto Arts Council, Canada Arts Council.

The main objective of this exhibit project is to link and diffuse the different pieces of artistic research developed by eight francophone artists working in Québec and in Ontario. They carry cultural baggage filled with references and reflect on the multiple factors defining women today.
The exhibition proposes a diversified and multi-sensory vision which is projected and questioned by female artists in order to better understand women’s reality in Canada. It will put into perspective various paths of reflection touching various aspects of life such as the social environment, the work life, or the individual landscape. Villes doubles, femmes dédoublées /Reflected Cities, Reflecting Women, offers a multi-faceted view of the feminine landmarks of today.
Supported by the Ontario Art Council.

The Glendon Gallery of York University has invited the PADEJO Collective to create an ephemeral installation in the lobby of the Centre of Excellence situated at the entrance of the campus. High school students specializing in visual arts will be able to use Sous-pression V1 – Les fils d’Ariane as an artistic education in French.
The three artists perceive their installation entitled Sous-pression V1 – Les fils d’Ariane as the next step in the synergistic fusion of art, myth and education. Since the work will be created onsite, the installation will give the opportunity for all interested parties to help the artists in the creation and installation of the piece.
Event presented in collaboration with Glendon Student Recruitment and Applicant Relations. Supported by the Ontario Ministry of Education.
