There’s never a shortage of things to do in Toronto, especially if culture is your thing. That said, if you’re in the city this winter/spring, the following shows look promising.
ABOVE: Diane Arbus, A young man and his pregnant wife in Washington Square Park, N.Y.C., 1965, gelatin silver print, 20 x 16 inches (sheet), private collection, Toronto, copyright © The Estate of Diane Arbus
BELOW: Aude Moreau, Waiting for Landing, 2015, digital print, 28 x 42 inches, collection of the artist
Art Gallery of Ontario (March 12 – May 29)
A selection of art misfits – including Diane Arbus, Kenneth Anger and Nan Goldin – comes to the AGO this month. Given the current state of U.S. politics, this show promises to be more relevant than ever.
Angell Gallery (April 9-23)
Not a lot of info available on this (no artists listed), but I’ll give this gallery the benefit of the doubt and expect a good showing.
The Power Plant (January 30 – May 15)
If you dig panoramas and cityscapes (I do), then this exhibition is for you. Several cities, among them Toronto and Montreal, are included.
Royal Ontario Museum (November 21, 2015 – March 20, 2016)
The world’s longest-running nature photography competition comes to Toronto with 100 stunning photos. You don’t have to be an art junky to love this.
