DECEMBER 11 TO APRIL 13  Step inside an imaginary world—several worlds, in fact—as the Textile Museum of Canada welcomes Fictions and Legends, an installation that weaves a fanciful tapestry out of the creative energies of Toronto-based artists Heather Goodchild and Jérôme Havre. Enter the phantasmagoria of the former’s circus-like central room, from which five other exhibits branch like portals to different realms. Patchwork figures, strange beasts, and textiles depicting all shapes and shades of scenes await within. Combining Havre’s experimentation in texture and form and Goodchild’s subtly mixed imagery, the exhibition guides visitors through a compelling visual narrative spun from collective cultural myths and experiences.  —Sara Burnside Menuck
