Shift: Highlights of Modernism from the AGO Collection

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.

one of a kind spring show and sale

Similar to most brilliant ideas, the One of a Kind Show was born out of a simple desire for something more. Premiering at Toronto’s Queen Elizabeth Building in December 1975, the “craft show” was the brainchild of Steven Levy, Martin Rumack and June Bibby. June (herself an artisan) couldn’t find a place to sell her work before Christmas, so the three friends decided to create their own holiday shopping venue. After a great deal of leg work and countless all-nighters, the trio launched the first One of a Kind Show, which encompassed 25 000 square feet and 80 participants.

The One of a Kind concept expanded in 1979 to include the One of a Kind Spring Show. Attracting over 200,000 visitors annually, our two Toronto shows have become a Canadian shopping tradition for those in search of the unique, handcrafted and the fantastic.

Investigating Miniature Ivory and Boxwood Carvings

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.

From Renaissance to Rodin: Celebrating the Tanenbaum Gift

Joey and Toby Tanenbaum’s dedication to the European Collection at the Art Gallery of Ontario is palpable in each of the works that they have donated since 1985. Each betrays a love of richness and visual depth, an interest in the tension between pleasure and morality, and a dedication to the needs of their city public. The sensuous marble surface of Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s bust of Pope Gregory XV (1621) proclaims Rome’s papal authority, while the panel The Expulsion of the Money-Changers (1480-1500), attributed to the anonymous Master of the Kress Epiphany, teaches about the boundaries between the sacred and secular with a riot of figures and movement. Hendrick Andriessen’s Still Life (Vanitas) (c. 1637) uses an array of fascinating objects, richly rendered, to warn its viewers of the impermanence of the senses and life. All the Tanenbaum gifts offer AGO visitors a window into the dynamic and exciting history of early modern Europe. Come explore this unique collection and share Joey and Toby Tanenbaum’s passion for the richness and beauty of European art.
