• See real robots such as iRobot’s floor-cleaning Roomba, an industrial robot from Fanuc Robotics, research robots from the MIT Museum, and a third-scale replica of the Mars rover from Cornell University’s Center for Radio Physics and Space Research.
• Images from Photo Researchers, Inc., NASA, and others illustrate the variety of robots in use today.
• Video clips show robots in action, including industrial robots, Honda’s service robot ASIMO, a Chinese entertainment android, and the latest robotic vehicles from the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge.

Gestures: Illustrations of Catastrophe and Remote Times
January 18, 2008 - May 11, 2008
Heather Pesanti, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at Carnegie Museum of Art, guest-curates the exhibit titled illustrations of catastrophe and remote times.
“The title and theme of the exhibition, illustrations of catastrophe and remote times, refers to a page from a larger collaborative essay, ‘The Domain of the Great Bear,’ written by the artists Robert Smithson and (Pittsburgh-native) Mel Bochner in 1966, describing an apocalyptic landscape in poetic and dramatic prose,” explains Pesanti. “The artists in this exhibition were asked to read and respond to this essay through site-specific installations, to whatever degree and in whatever manner they choose.”
“The participants in this show represent a wide spectrum of creative fields, techniques, media, ages, and perspectives, ranging from visual and performing artists to an experimental band and a robotics professor. Many are individuals with whom I’ve made studio visits or encountered in galleries or universities throughout the city,” says Pesanti. “They are all unbelievably talented and creative, and I am looking forward to seeing the final product of their individual and collective efforts.” -Heather Pesanti

Images of animals have been increasingly prevalent in contemporary art recently... you can't spit at an art fair without hitting two deer, a bear and probably a sasquatch. Exploring the urgency animal representations have had recently, this show includes works that explore several different aspects of the relationship between animals and culture.
Deer Art: Animal Imagery in Contemporary Art
December 15th - February 3rd 2008
Opening Saturday December 15th
Programmed by Janine Marchessault and Scott McLeod and presented by Prefix Institute of Contemporary Art in association with the Visible City Project and Archive of York University.
The Urban Field Speakers Series centres on the role of art in transforming the experience of the city. Through lectures, audio-visual presentations and discussions, it explores how creative practices can help improve the quality of urban life and planning in Toronto and around the world. This series of monthly events brings together an array of international and local participants, including artists, architects, curators, designers and scholars, who are working at the intersections of technology, communications and aesthetics. Reflecting a broad range of perspectives and practices, the events build upon each other to inspire dialogue on the role of the city in art, and art in the city.

Screen Deaths: Visitations
January 20 - April 13, 2008
A new installation for the PMCA Project Room by Los Angeles-based artist Dane Picard, this exhibition fuses aural sensation with the cinematic themes that arise from Picard's other career as a filmmaker.
Focusing on the blurry lines between fiction and the personal narrative, the work questions the narcotic emotional escapism of movies, as well as the unreal notions about living and dying as adopted by popular culture. By consolidating a multitude of "screen deaths" within the installation, the artist creates a consciously constructed database of responses to the natural condition of death.
"In conjunction with the SB International Film Festival, CAF will feature:
Sounds Like The Sound of Music
about the BLOOM PROJECTS series
Bruce Yonemoto’s Sounds Like The Sound of Music (2005) draws from two distinct and seemingly unrelated Hollywood film classics, George Lucas’ Star Wars trilogy (specifically, the Reagan-era Return of the Jedi) and Robert Wise’s 1965 musical, The Sound of Music. Both films express Hollywood’s associations to political narratives of their times: The Sound of Music dramatized Post-War nostalgia for European ideals at the dawn of the Nazi regime; and Star Wars’ depiction of the “good vs. evil” ethos surrounding the final years of the Cold-War era.
Filmed in Cuzco, Peru, Yonemoto’s video recreates the opening sequence from The Sound of Music, replacing the Austrian Alps with the Peruvian Andes, the village of Salzberg with Incan ruins and Julie Andrews with a young Andean boy. Sweeping aerial views and a solitary figure accompany the soundtrack, sung by the Andean boy. Yet the language is probably best known through its place in popular culture as George Lucas’ villain Jabba the Hut. These relationships to war and cultural imperialism are of great interest to Yonemoto, especially when filtered through the Hollywood entertainment machine."
