AGO Friday Nights: Celebrating New Exhibitions
Join the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) for a museum-wide celebration as we welcome new and give a nod to current exhibitions with an evening of talks, tours and live music. Don’t miss the chance to hear artist David Ruben Piqtoukun speak within his Radical Remembrances solo exhibition. Meanwhile, artists Laurie Kang and Aaron Jones, two of the ten artists featured in We Are Story: The Canada Now Photography Acquisition, speak about their works in this exciting new group exhibition. Inside Denyse Thomasos: just beyond, Trinidadian jazz saxophonist Jesse Ryan will perform, and in Walker Court, DJ Vibrant Matter aka Kieran Adams will spin tracks. Cash bar available.
