As the city of Toronto continuously shuts down shelters and emergency services to our friends in homeless or low-income situations, and as rates and rent rise unrelentingly amidst a city bursting with wealth and austerity, we turn to community to help in hard times. We hope to see you soon, and with peace to all. Please spread the word and let your friends and family know!"

* This is a student-run initiative, three years running, which #ocaducampuslife is pleased to help promote.

Labyrinth of the heART

Labyrinth of the heART by Maria Gabankova
Saturday, January 12, 2008 - 5:00am to Sunday, February 3, 2008 - 5:00am

Loop Gallery is pleased to announce exhibitions by OCAD Professor Maria Gabankova, entitled Labyrinth of the heART.
Labyrinth of the heART is a selection of drawings and paintings featured in a recently published book body broken body redeemed on Maria Gabankova's art. Published by Piquant Editions in Great Britain, this second volume in the VISIBILIA series of 'visual biographies' features over 50 full-colour reproductions of paintings and installations by Czech-born Canadian artist Maria Gabankova. Introduction by John Franklin.
The exhibition presents a large copy (94" x 108") of the Crucifixion panel of the Issenheim Altarpiece by Matthias Gr'newald, a work which Gabankova travelled to Colmar, Alsace, France to study at the Unterlinden Museum in 2003. She was commissioned by the Biblical Museum of Canada in Vancouver, B.C. to paint a copy of the Crucifixion panel, which she completed in the summer of 2007. The painting has had a profound influence on Gabankova's work and its spiritual content and expressive power relates to the themes of her previous work.
The exhibition's title pays homage to a literary allegory Labyrinth of the World and Paradise of the Heart by the 17th century Czech philosopher, educator and theologian Jan Amos Comenius.
