Ultimate Dinosaurs: Giants from Gondwana

Forget about the dinosaurs you know… this is a whole new breed of beast. Mark your calendars for the biggest and best dinosaur exhibition ever mounted in Canada!

Ultimate Dinosaurs: Giants from Gondwana features dinosaurs you’ve never seen before, displayed in ways you’ve never seen before. Created by the ROM, this new exhibition makes its world premiere in Toronto on June 23.

This scientifically rigorous, cutting-edge exhibition is based on ground-breaking new research and takes you on a journey through the ancient land of Gondwana. Meet the world’s largest and strangest dinosaurs as you journey back in time to the Mesozoic era and learn how continental drift supported the evolution of these bizarre creatures in what is modern-day Africa, Madagascar and South America.

Not only will you experience new dinosaurs – you’ll experience them in new ways. This exhibition includes cutting-edge augmented reality technology, that layers virtual experiences over the real environment. Three innovative iPad stations allow you to experience dinosaurs in surprising ways, including virtually fleshing out a dinosaur skeleton.

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.
