Close Looking: Tim Whiten's After Phaeton

Join us to see the ways art reveals and shapes the world in which we live. Close looking is an online monthly series that invites people to spend time with artworks from the AGO Collection - observing their details, discussing its creation, its history and the artist’s intention through multiple senses and perspectives.

Join Renata Azevedo Moreira, Assistant Curator, Canadian Art, for a closer look at the sculpture After Phaeton (2013), by American-Canadian artist Tim Whiten. The handcrafted glass chariot is now on view at the McLean Centre for Indigenous & Canadian Art, on Level 2 of the AGO. Its title comes from the tale of Phaeton, a Greek myth about power, legacy, and the place of humanity in the world, which has fascinated a great number of artists throughout history.
