Burlington, Ont.’s Royal Botanical Gardens is one of 12 gardens worldwide showing a new, immersive exhibition called “Seeing the Invisible” (on now until Nov. 6). While wandering Hendrie Park, guests use a companion app to view contemporary art created with augmented reality (AR) tech, including works by the likes of Ai Weiwei, Sarah Meyohas and Mel O’Callaghan. For Thursday nights, you can also book tickets for RBG After Dark and enjoy the art alongside live music, food trucks and beer.

Art beyond borders

Paris in 1924 is often considered the birthplace of surrealism as a cultural movement, which quickly expanded far outside the city. Coming soon to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, “Surrealism Beyond Borders” (Oct. 11 to Jan. 30, 2022) considers the movement through a global lens — covering nearly eight decades of work across 45 countries.

Music to your ears

Montreal’s biggest music festival, Osheaga, was nixed last year, but a special mini edition, “Osheaga Get Together” (Oct. 1 to 3), is set to play on this fall. The program will spotlight a wholly Canadian roster on two outdoor stages at Parc Jean-Drapeau on Île Sainte-Hélène, with Charlotte Cardin, Jessie Reyez and Half Moon Run as headliners.

Destination dining

The next “rising star on the global dining scene” is Ikoyi in London, England — according to the American Express One to Watch Award 2021 (part of the World’s 50 Best Restaurants program). It’s not exactly an unknown: Ikoyi has earned a Michelin star and other raves for its tasting menus, which highlight “micro-seasonal” ingredients and West African spices.
