Join Audrey Hudson, Associate Curator, Schools & Early Learning Programs engage a round table discussion on how to speak about anti-black racism with the art in the AGO's collection as an entry point. The panel will include community members, artist educators, teachers and activists.
EXHIBITIONSToronto artist June Clark's powerful work explores the intersection of family history, Blackness, recollection and identity. In 2018 we connected with Clark to learn more about her series Whispering City.
COLLECTIONContemporary artist Kara Walker’s black paper-cut silhouettes, paintings, installations and films explore race, gender, sexuality, violence and cultural identity. You can see these themes in a recently-acquired print, Resurrection Story with Patrons.
Even from a distance, art can bring us together. The support of our community has inspired the AGO in these unprecedented times, and by opening the virtual doors of the Gallery, we continue to share the joy and wonder of art. We are also working to safeguard and conserve our remarkable collection while preparing for future exhibitions and special programming.
