MUSEletter - Week of October 10, 2022

 SHORT WEEK SHARKS

In case you're having a little long weekend recovery, we have a couple reminders for you.
First of all, it is Tuesday (instead of our usual Monday MUSEletter) and there's lots of fun stuff to squeeze in before Friday.

Secondly, at any given moment, there's a shark behind you. It may be a thousand miles away, but it is always behind you. Additionally, they are TOTALLY behind you. They want you to succeed and accomplish everything you set your mind on this week.

U of T & Beyond
BEING LEGENDARY


Acclaimed Cree artist Kent Monkman’s major solo exhibition Being Legendary will open to the public on October 8, 2022, running to March 19, 2023, at ROM (Royal Ontario Museum).

Years in the making, Monkman created this new body of work in direct response to artifacts and natural history specimens in ROM’s permanent collection. Through his paintings and other artworks, Monkman reframes history through his Cree perspective to interrogate the role of museums and ask crucial questions about how collections are presented in the 21st century.

SIDEWALK STORIES

Explore over 150 years of unique architectural history in and around the University of Toronto’s St. George campus, delving into how architects have worked around, added to, repaired, adapted, and even relocated some of the earliest structures in the area. Play a game of Heritage Bid as you tour through one of the most remarkable architectural collections in Canada, taking stock of buildings such as the Royal Ontario Museum, the Faculty of Arts and Science, and Robarts Library. Led by Joël León of the Toronto Society of Architects, this walk will challenge preconceptions of what heritage is and raise questions of how to preserve our past while meeting the needs of the future.

Developed in collaboration with the Toronto Society of Architects.
