Intersection is an annual new music and arts festival hosted by Contact Contemporary Music, held at various venues including a daylong happening at Yonge-Dundas Square.

Dates: September 5, 6, 7

We are looking for contributions for September 6 at Yonge Dundas Square

To apply: Please send your proposal including audio/video link(s) to info@contactcontemporarymusic.ca   by June 1, 2014

Aptly named for its crossroads of both music and traffic, Intersection is a new/experimental/creative festival anchored by a daylong music marathon in the heart of Toronto at Yonge-Dundas Square. Intersection transforms Toronto’s busiest street corner into a mecca of music and sound art. The main stage hosts a variety of performances by Toronto’s most innovative music creators and performers. An interactive marketplace featuring music organizations and local businesses fill the grounds of the square. Unplugged intimate performances create a “Music Circus” in the square during set changes on the featured stage. The marathon creates an environment where eyes and ears are opened, conversations are had and awareness is created. People are free to experiment, discuss and partake in the music and activities around them.

 

  • Sotheby’s Institute Semester Programme in Art Museums, Galleries and Curating

Art Museums, Galleries and Curating is a full-time semester programme at Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London designed for students and professionals considering future careers in art museums and art galleries. The programme is thematically structured to investigate a wide variety of approaches to the subject, from the largest questions about the social and cultural roles of art museums and galleries, to issues concerning the presentation and interpretation of art objects within them. The programme explores current debates about art museums and galleries in the context of the history of collecting, care and exhibition of works of art from the sixteenth-century onwards. Key components of modern art museum and gallery practice, such as acquisitions and collecting, collections management, display methods, exhibition planning, conservation, learning and interpretation are all critically examined.

Through the prism of historic and contemporary practice, the programme also considers the position of the gallery curator at the centre of a complex and fluid network of professionals. It will explore the dynamic working relationships that are so fundamental within museums and galleries, and provide students with a window into these vital and otherwise unseen communities.

First-hand encounters with art works and exhibition spaces are an integral part of the learning experience. London is a major centre for art collections and art institutions alike, and faculty-led visits to museums and galleries are fundamental to the framework of the programme. There are day trips to venues such as Cambridge (Kettle’s Yard, the Fitzwilliam Museum and the New Hall Art Collection), Chichester (Pallant House Gallery and Chichester Cathedral) and Aylesbury (Waddesdon Manor), and a European field trip is also included in the cost of the programme.
