Toronto, June 2022, The Bloor St. Culture Corridor

Happy June!

Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema

Hot Docs Cinema kicks Summer off with films fresh off Hot Docs Festival 2022, including Best International Feature Documentary Award Winner Blue Island, about Hong Kong’s recent protest movement; Beautiful Scars, an intimate portrait of singer-songwriter Tom Wilson; and the provocative Deconstructing Karen, where a group of white women are invited to sit down to wine, a meal, and a radically honest conversation about racism and privilege. Celebrate Pride with A Divine Double Bill, featuring the camptastic cult classic Pink Flamingos and I Am Divine. Revisit peak '90s rap with the new series Wu-Tang Forever: The Art and Legacy of Shaolin’s Finest, a cinematic celebration of the ground-breaking group. Join writers Robyn Maynard and Leanne Betasamosake Simpson for the Toronto premiere of Rehearsals for Living, a revolutionary collaboration about the world we’re living in now. Watch Homeroom, a moving portrait of the senior class at Oakland High as they navigate a moment of profound social change, and stay for the post-screening panel to learn about the challenges facing Toronto’s public education system.

Toronto Reference Library

A new exhibition in the TD Gallery at Toronto Reference Library, Consulting with the Ether, places original artworks by students in 4th Year Indigenous Visual Culture courses at OCAD University alongside curated materials from Toronto Public Library’s Special Collections. This strategy is meant to guide the viewer in rethinking and reimagining their relationship to the materials. It offers a view into how each artist researched and engaged with each material. This work is never disconnected from place, from this land we live on. It necessarily engages with questions of how we meaningfully and ethically work within institutions on Indigenous land. Admission is free. Plan your visit: tpl.ca/tdgallery.

Royal Ontario Museum

On view through September 25, 2022 is Kore 670.
This remarkable figure of a maiden, or kore, is one of the most intricate and highly decorated statues from ancient Greece. This kore, named Kore 670, created between 520-510 BCE, is considered one of the most important sculptures from the Acropolis in Athens because of its fine detail and preserved colour. This exquisite statue, which rarely leaves its home at the Acropolis Museum, will be on display on the main floor at ROM. Learn more here.

Soundstreams has two special events this June. Celebrating R. Murray Schafer takes place June 5 at 4pm. Legendary composer R. Murray Schafer died last August. He was arguably the greatest composer the country has ever produced. Soundstreams commissioned and produced several of his largest and most significant vocal works. This concert is produced by Soundstreams with free admission as a gift to the community, and is in collaboration with Schafer's wife Eleanor James, Grace Church on-the-Hill, and the Canadian Music Centre. Then on June 25 at 8pm is Percussion Theatre. Percussionist Noam Bierstone was the winner of the competition for Soundstreams' "New Voices" Curator Mentorship Program and developed his proposal for premiere on Soundstreams' Main Stage. The program showcases the fascinating concept of 'instrumental theatre,' wherein music does not accompany an action; rather, music is the action, a natural focus given the choreography inherent in percussion works. Find out more at their website.

Together, the Bloor St. Culture Corridor organizations employ more than 5,500 culture workers and generate more than $629,500,000 in economic impact each year.
