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.
Philanthropy has always been and remains critical to making this possible. Please click below to make a special gift in support of the AGO and making art accessible.
The Contemporary collection includes painting, sculpture, immersive installation, works on paper, photography, performance, video and sound art from international artists since 1960 and Canadian artists since 1990.
The library’s 380,000+ volumes include Rare Books and Artists’ Books ranging from folios and art historical books from the 17th century to the present, illustrated books and magazines, travel guides, art sales catalogues, and artists’ books and multiples.
