Francis Bacon and Henry Moore: Terror and Beauty

Francis Bacon and Henry Moore: Terror and Beauty brings together two giants of 20th-century British art in a major exhibition of sculpture and paintings. Organized by the AGO in conjunction with the U.K.’s renowned Ashmolean Museum, this exhibit will feature over 60 works by the two highly influential artists as well as a number of photographs and archival materials dating from the Second World War. Contemporaries but not friends, Bacon and Moore shared an obsession with expressing themes of suffering, struggle, and survival in relation to the human body. They survived the Second World War and were subsequently haunted by the conflict, which they represented through manifestations of the body in various states of contortion. Drawing on their personal experiences from the London Blitz, this exhibit demonstrates how the two artists reflected differently upon psychological torment. This is the first Canadian exhibition of Bacon’s work and the presentation also includes rarely-seen Moore artworks.

April 5 to July 20, 2014.

Art Gallery of Ontario — 317 Dundas St. W.

TICKETS: Tickets for Francis Bacon and Henry Moore: Terror and Beauty are $16.50 for students and youth ages 17 and under, $21.50 for seniors, and $25 for adults. Admission is FREE for AGO members and for children ages five and under. AGO members also have access to an exclusive advance preview of the exhibition from April 2 – 4, 2014 before it opens to the public.
