Op-Ed: Aga Khan Museum opens in Toronto Special

Toronto - After 18 years, the dream of an Islamic centre for art and community has become a reality — not, as originally intended, in London, England, but in Toronto.

Op-Ed: Behind-the-scenes at the Royal Ontario Museum Special

A visit to the conservation labs at the Royal Ontario Museum is an unusual opportunity to see how artifacts look in a state of “undress”. Here, in the laboratories, conservators work to keep the objects intact, but they also solve mysteries.

Op-Ed: Winter Solstice Festival in Kensington Market, Toronto 2013 Special

Toronto - The Winter Solstice celebration in Kensington Market has been a tradition in Toronto for 24 years. Winter Solstice (sometimes called Saturnalia or Yule) is the pagan festival that ancient peoples of Europe celebrated on the shortest day of the year.

Patti Smith: An unrepentant iconoclast plays in an iconic venue Special

Toronto - I missed Patti Smith’s Camera Solo show, and the sold-out First Thursday concert at the AGO in March, but Friday night’s concert at Massey Hall was a blast! Here are my impressions of the concert - and a postscript about the venue.

BuskerFest Toronto 2013: Scenes of Wonder and Delight Special

Toronto - The Scotiabank BuskerFest (organized by Epilepsy Toronto) includes street performers of every sort - and the performances are enthralling, thrilling and surprising.

Wikwemikong Cultural Festival and Powwow Special

Wikwemikong Cultural Festival and Powwow on Manitoulin Island, Canada, is held every year on the August Civic Holiday Long Weekend. Very few foreign tourists know about the festival, but it is great fun, and well worth the time it takes to travel to it.

Review: Ai Weiwei — According to What? Special

Toronto - Ai Weiwei is a genius, a clown, and a provocateur, but at his core he is a humanist. His retrospective show at the AGO Toronto, "According to What?" is now open to the general public. I highly recommend it.

Review: Ancestry and Artistry — Maya textiles at the Textile Museum Special

Toronto - Ancestry and Artistry: Maya Textiles from Guatemala celebrates the inventive skills of Maya women's craft. This exhibit displays huipiles and other types of clothing from over a period of nearly 50 years, and the evolution of style both local and global.
