Creative Events – May 4 Weekend

If you’re anything like me you want to be making interesting, fun, creative use of your time over the weekend but it’s really hard to find something to do. Have no fear, we’re here and every
Thursday we’ll be providing you with news about what’s happening on the creativity front over the weekend.

This weekend is a great start – Toronto is a city of summer festivals and an amazing one kick off this weekend.

The Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival is the world’s largest exhibition of photographic art. This year’s theme is Field of Vision. As artistic director Bonnie Rubenstein puts it, 2013 is about considering how the photographic frame extends sight. Using a wide variety of approaches and venues that include museums, public transport and outdoor space the festival considers society’s ongoing obsession with images and shared knowledge. The festival opened last night and runs until May 31.

Under The Ground is set in the sewer system of Canada's cities.  Exhibitions includes this 2010 work, Ruisseau Denis storm drain, Montreal. The work is by Toronto photographer and video artist Andrew Emond.

If you’re looking for more variety in terms of media there’s also the Beach Studio Tour. Wander the east end of the city on the shores of Lake Ontario in this weekend’s sunshine and discover the studios of jewellery designers, painters, sculptors, glass and textile artists. The tour runs from May 3-5 and admission is free.
