Taxed Out | Until Friday December 14 | Urban Space Gallery | Hours | Phone 416-595-5900

The Ryerson City Building Institute has released its analysis of the devastating impact that high property taxes are having on small and independent businesses in the downtown core. Sub-titled “Can Toronto Retail Main Streets Survive?” it shows how the downtown is being eviscerated from its small businesses and how jobs are lost.

The report is also a photo exposition at Urban Space Gallery at 401 Richmond Street West (at Spadina). What could be a dry statistical comparative analysis, is actually an engaging display of the challenges faced and asks the question about how lively do we want our streets to be.

Anthropocene | Until Sunday January 6 | Art Gallery of Ontario | Hours

Anthropocene dramatically illustrates how we, individually and collectively, are leaving a human signature on our world. World-renowned photographer Edward Burtynsky and multiple award-winning filmmakers Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier have created a powerful series of new photographs, including larg-scale murals augmented by film extensions, film installations and augmented reality (AR) installations, that take us to places we are deeply connected to – but normally never see.

The artists travelled to countries on every continent, save Antarctica, documenting irreversible marks of human activity. Informed by scientific research, powered by aesthetic vision, inspired by a desire to bear witness, they reveal the scale and gravity of our impact on the planet.
