TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 07/09/14 -- Editor's note: There is one image associated with this press release.
PATTISON Onestop celebrates the Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival Toronto with a specially commissioned exhibition, Confluence: Shifting Perspectives of the Caribbean, bringing together a group of works produced by artists with cultural ties to the Caribbean.
From July 25 - August 29, Confluence: Shifting Perspectives of the Caribbean will appear every 10 minutes on PATTISON Onestop subway platform screens across the city and shopping malls screens across Canada, as well as on PATTISON billboards along the Gardiner Expressway from July 21 - August 3 bringing the Caribbean Carnival to the daily commuter.
Curated by Pamela Edmonds and Sally Frater of Third Space Art Projects, Confluence: Shifting Perspectives of the Caribbean highlights the work of Nicole Awai, Sandra Brewster, Charles Campbell, Delio Delgado, Polibio Diaz, Zachary Fabri, Jerome Havre, Karyn Olivier, Sheena Rose, Wayne Salmon, and Natalie Wood.
"The opportunity to work with Third Space Art Projects and PATTISON's Arts in Transit is a unique opportunity for the Scotiabank Toronto Caribbean Carnival," said Denise Herrera Jackson, Chief Executive Officer, Festival Management Committee. "Ours is a street festival that takes place in several public spaces, so why not use transit and other spaces to reveal our creativity."
"This is the first time ever that PATTISON has partnered with the Caribbean Carnival Toronto and we are very pleased to be able to bring such a unique arts exhibition to this major international event," said Sharon Switzer National Arts Programmer and Curator, Pattison Onestop.
Drawing inspiration from the geographical term that references the meeting of two or more bodies of water, the artists in Confluence: Shifting Perspectives of the Caribbean address myriad subjectivities and concerns, yet all in some manner or form embody the notion of movement. The artists have roots in Jamaica, Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, the Dominican Republic and Martinique. Their works touch on themes such as hybridity, the performative, migration and transformation, highlighting the notion of a space that is always in flux, refracting and shifting to illuminate new perspectives.
Confluence: Shifting Perspectives of the Caribbean is a co-presentation of Scotiabank Caribbean Carnival and PATTISON Onestop, and was commissioned as part of PATTISON's ongoing Art in Transit programme.
A special sneak peek of Confluence: Shifting Perspectives of the Caribbean will take place on Thursday, July 24, 2014 from 6:00pm - 8:00pm at BAND Gallery and Cultural Space located at 1 Lansdowne Avenue, 2nd Floor (Queen St. West/Lansdowne Ave.).

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market? In his general session at 18th Cloud Expo, Nara Rajagopalan, CEO of Accelerite, explored the challenges in deploying, managing, and getting adoption for a private cloud within an enterprise. What are the key differences between wh...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Big Data engines are powering a lot of service businesses right now. Data is collected from users from wearable technologies, web behaviors, purchase behavior as well as several arbitrary data points we’d never think of. The demand for faster and bigger engines to crunch and serve up the data to services is growing exponentially. You see a LOT of correlation between “Cloud” and “Big Data” but on Big Data and “Hybrid,” where hybrid hosting is the sanest approach to the Big Data Infrastructure pro...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
