Kensington Market Jazz Festival at Kensington Market, Toronto
Friday, Saturday, Sunday September 14, 15, 16, 2018 Mark your calendars! The third annual Kensington Market Jazz Festival will be the best one yet. Deemed by Brad Wheeler of The Globe and Mail as “wildly successful,” the new kid on the Toronto jazz festival block is the brainchild of founding director, acclaimed musician, philanthropist and Officer of the Order of Canada, Molly Johnson. Born in Kensington Market, she dreamt of creating this festival for years as inspired by playing European festivals. Since the spring of 2016, with the help of musicians Ori Dagan and Genevieve Marentette, and social media maven Céline Peterson, Johnson has been spearheading an annual celebration of Toronto culture and talent.

The Ancient and Medieval Heritage of Ethiopian Art at Art Gallery of Ontario, 317 Dundas St. W., Toronto
Join scholar Meseret Oldjira for a talk exploring the artistic achievements that characterize the ancient and medieval heritage of Ethiopian art while highlighting the Ethiopian artworks on view at the AGO. The adoption of Christianity as the state religion of the Aksumite kingdom in the 4th century prompted the rise of a rich Christian literary and artistic tradition in Ethiopia. Today, the surviving churches, wall paintings, illuminated manuscripts, and painted icons attest to Ethiopia’s development of a strong local tradition of artistic production as well as its active participation in global artistic exchange in the medieval and early modern periods. This is a free event. Your ticket guarantees your seat up until 10 minutes before the start of the event. After 10 minutes prior to the start of the event, any unclaimed seats will be given to those in the Rush Line.

Complementing Transforming Fashion, this immersive installation invites you to imagine and explore what architecture might look like in the future. Merging chemistry, artificial intelligence and encompassing soundscapes, Beesley and his collaborators in the Living Architecture Systems group create a visually stunning, interactive environment that surrounds you like an enchanting artificial forest.

Merging chemistry, artificial intelligence and encompassing soundscapes, Beesley and his collaborators in the Living Architecture Systems group create a visually stunning, interactive environment that surrounds you like an enchanting artificial forest.

Studio 54 at Hot Docs Ted Rogers Cinema, 506 Bloor St. W., Toronto
Step inside New York’s most legendary nightclub and learn the true story behind Studio 54. Opened in the late 1970s by Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager, two friends from Brooklyn, this exclusive hotspot became the city’s ground zero for disco, drugs and debauchery before closing down after only three years. A wild space that welcomed queer culture at a time of rampant homophobia and made headlines with its celebrity guestlists, Studio 54 came to symbolize an entire era. Director Matt Tyrnauer (Citizen Jane) peels away the myth and reveals the ins and outs of the club’s short lifespan and lasting legacy. October 12 - 24
