Here's a round-up of outdoor art fairs in Toronto this spring and summer.
Simply titled Art Shows in Toronto (artshowstoronto.ca), the project is "just getting things underway," but you can get a good look now at what the listing site is all about: one tab lists upcoming exhibits including OCAD's GradEx (though MOCCA's Contact opening, for instance, is currently missing), while ongoing shows covers everything from Basquiat at the AGO to Hoda Zarbaf at Walnut.
Nearly 2,300 spectators braved the wet and muddy conditions to pack the White Big Top to take in the elaborate set design and choreography featuring more than 70 horses, acrobats and musical performances. It's a sight to behold even if just for the how-did-they-do that flips, jumps and other super-human body contortions.
Check out a selection of scenes from the show in our photo gallery.
Cartoonist Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal created one of the most successful Kickstarters of all time for the game, which combines cats, explosions, and laserbeams in a quest to save innocent cartoon kitties from, well, exploding.
