People talking about this city's buildings and what they mean to us. In a city where the landscape is constantly changing, there just aren't too many of these stories around. There are bright lights and tall buildings -- all the stuff big cities are made of -- but stories that shed light on our city's past and provide us with some common narrative seem pretty hard to come by. Even harder to keep around.
Dear Art Gallery of Ontario, The week of October 20, while walking past the Drake Hotel in Toronto, one of your employees handed me a unibrow and a card that said I should wear it in order to get 50 per cent off the price of admission to your exhibit "Frida and Diego: Passion, Politics and Painting." I am glad that Frida Kahlo's work is here in Toronto, but I can't help but think this stunt isn't how Kahlo would have wished to be remembered.
