There's a huge Pablo Picasso exhibition opening in Toronto next month
On the heels of a number of high profile announcements of immersive art experiences in the city, The AGO is reminding everyone they'll be displaying a massive exhibit featuring the works of Pablo Picasso next month in Toronto.
Picasso: Painting the Blue Period will be the first exhibit in Canada to focus on the artist's earlier years of his work from 1901-1904, while he moved between Paris and Barcelona. The exhibit will feature more than 100 objects from 15 different countries.
Some of the work featured will show Picasso's responses to the social and political events that inspired him to create pieces on uncomfortable issues such as poverty and war.
Admission to the exhibit is free for visitors 25 years old and under, AGO members, and annual pass holders. Tickets and reservations must be purchased online in advance as there is a timed entry.
The exhibition is open to AGO members on Oct. 6, annual pass holders on Oct. 9, and to the general public on Oct. 26 and runs through to Jan.16.
