    Reinventing the Classics: Contemporary Responses to Old Master Prints is an exhibition featuring the work of six contemporary artists, who work in a variety of media and styles, and who are responding to two old master prints depicting Classical art and architecture.

    The earlier print is an engraving published in 1533 picturing an antique portrait bust of the philosopher, Aristotle. The later print is an etching by Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1729-1778) of the Aqua Vergine aqueduct in Rome, which is part of a series of prints after Roman ruins, published in 1756. Both prints show antiquity through the lens of their times and were originally produced primarily as souvenirs.

    Award-winning filmmaker Kevan Funk ('11) debuts his next short, Bison, at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF). 

    From the TIFF site: Set on a rural Saskatchewan ranch during the annual branding season, Bison follows a young man who heads to the country for a guys’ weekend, but is profoundly unsettled after he makes a disturbing discovery. Kevan Funk’s follow-up to Yellowhead is a disquieting study of the continued colonization of the West.
