This exhibition features modern masterworks from 1909 until 1971. It was a period of great change in the world: the rapid rise of the car, the Great Depression’s economic turmoil, the devastation of two world wars, the advance of television and computers, the civil rights movement. Living the seismic shifts that surrounded them, the artists in this exhibition experimented with unique ways of seeing and explored new ideas about the nature of materials and the nature of artmaking itself. Artists expressed their inner visions, investigated social issues and created new languages of visual expression, with each generation ambitiously building upon and challenging the art that had come before.
With events for all ages, we combine the excitement of all the arts on the last Sunday of the month from October to March with interactive, innovative family activities to engage and delight all ages throughout the studio and gallery.

This exhibition invites you to explore ongoing research into five works of art from the Thomson Collection European Art at the AGO. Although each one is more than 500 years old, much remains to be discovered about these rare medieval carvings. Prized for their exceptional skill, craftsmanship and artistry, these mysterious objects inspire a range of questions: Who made it? How was it carved? Who owned it? How was it used? Constantly seeking answers, AGO curators and conservators closely examine the works, comb through primary documents and travel internationally to scrutinize related objects and research materials. They also deploy scientific technologies, such as X-radiography (X-rays), micro-computed tomography (CT scanning) and radiocarbon dating. New and in-depth research findings lead to a deeper understanding of these works and, consequently, the history of human creativity.
