How has video art functioned as a form of gossip in the Toronto art scene, and how might tracing this gossip contribute to a social history of the medium? I am particularly interested in how video was used to catalyze, fabulate and process sexual experimentation and desire in artists’ scenes in the 1970s and into the 1980s. Friends and lovers, tight-knit groups of artists here and elsewhere performed in and helped produce each other’s tapes, attended openings and screenings, and then wrote critically about the works afterward.

 Old buildings are graceful, functional and downright cool. So how do architects go about transforming an older building into the newest urban hot spot?  We'll discuss the various approaches for heritage conservation, including the process and primary considerations for understanding and transforming older buildings. A few case studies will illustrate the simplest repairs, more extensive treatments, and new research that is helping old buildings perform as well or better than new construction.
