Long Live David Cronenberg!

Evolution

Same picture – different faces.

TIFF’s first major original exhibition, David Cronenberg: Evolution, parallels David Cronenberg’s evolution as a filmmaker with his longstanding fascination with the possibilities and perils of human evolution itself. The exhibition launched November 1, 2013 and will continue till January 19, 2014.

If you’re a big Cronenberg fan, you’ll be happy to know that the exhibition covers each of the prolific director’s films, from 1969′s Stereo to 2012′s Cosmopolis. Naked Lunch is well represented with sketches and props, like the typewriter bugs, a sexblob and a recreation of a mugwump at a bar, that guests are invited to pose with for photos.

Pedestrian Sundays @ Kensington

Kensington

I have done quite a few Pedestrian Sundays at the Kensington Market over the last few years. Every one of them brings something new and unique. The spontaneity of it all is one of those things that makes it so much fun.

There must have been something in the air or just the realization that this was the second last Pedestrian Sunday of the year and people were out really soaking up the vibe. Bands of every genre on the corner of every block and not one were without a throng of watchers enjoying their music.

Midnight MRKT – review

Midnight Mrkt

Midnight Mrkt

Last Friday, Sept the 20th, my friends and I went to the Midnight MRKT.

What is it you ask? It’s Toronto’s night market pairing music, drinks and street style food with local retailers. It is a reoccurring event and the locations always change. Last one took place at 461 King St. West.

Cabbagetown Festival

Cabbagetown Festival happens every year and for the past few years it seemed to be the same old with nothing new to offer. This year though it was quite the surprise! New vendors, new energy and a lot to see and do.

It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon and we strolled through the park admiring some really amazing art work. I would like to mention some of the artists on here as I feel they really stood out from the rest. Please visit and share their websites.

The first artist, who really stood out to me was Floyd Elzinga. His work was breathtaking and unlike nothing I have ever seen before.

Floyd Elzinga

He explores traditional metal working techniques to create textures, colors and depth the same way a painter would use a paintbrush. Current themes in his work focus on broken landscapes, portraits of trees and the aggressive nature of seeds.
