  • Canadian Artist TALWST is excited to present ‘NUBIANS’ in joint efforts with TD’s Then & Now Series, to help spread knowledge of Black history and identity through visual art. On February 12th, 2015, and for one night only, join TALWST at the Drake Lab for the chance to open, close, and closely inspect the artist's incredible new series of hand-held dioramas.

    Guests are to arrive between 6:30-9:00 pm, where they will be assembled and escorted in small groups to the exclusive showing of ‘NUBIANS.’ This will be a unique opportunity for audiences to engage with the artist and his work, which places itself against the traditions and trends in Western art both artistically and conceptually. This project subscribes to the apt notion that a little can go a long way.

  • Dedicated to creating a new groove-based music, THE DIGS embody the unique perspective of diversity that could only come from Canada's multicultural melting pot, Toronto. To dig is to extract from the ground by breaking up earth, and The Digs are a band reaching down into the roots of American pop music and pulling up a vibrant sound that is an organically constructed embarrassment of riches.

    Ultimately, The Digs consist of close friendships built upon the love of music, and the love for one another, and it is this dedication which gives them a consistently renewed energy with each jam-packed gig, each infectious groove, each funky beat. Catch The Digs while you can!

    A Trinidadian-Canadian identity ignites provoking work from Toronto-based artist, TALWST, who explores the Black identity in North America and Western Art. The collection of hand-held dioramas, housed in reclaimed ring boxes, work their way through what it has meant to be ‘Black’ throughout history. This body of work meticulously and thoughtfully seeks to revoke the notion of Black as ‘other,’ as it has been repeatedly presented and accepted as norm in Western art tradition. Through the artist’s use of a monochromatic palette, the viewer must train the eye to ascertain the Black figure within the compact work. TALWST elaborates, “Through the primary use of various tones of black in my work, I seek to demonstrate and celebrate the very depth of ‘Blackness,’ in homage of the many great artist that have come from the African diaspora.”

    A love letter to lavish, bygone European hotels. Wes Anderson’s The Grand Budapest Hotel owes much to this Golden Era-Hollywood film, featuring luminaries like Greta Garbo, John Barrymore and Joan Crawford in a big and brassy melodrama on the affairs of the rich and not-so-famous.
