AGO Next events are open to current AGO Next members. Find out more about this philanthropic program.


Join us for a virtual discussion about the fascinating years-long process by which exhibitions are planned and presented at the AGO. AGO Next members will get a behind-the-scenes look at the making of Painted Presence: Rembrandt and his Peers with speakers Adam Harris Levine, Associate Curator, European Art, Art Gallery of Ontario and Suzanne van de Meerendonk, Bader Curator, European Art, Agnes Etherington Art Centre, Queen’s University.


From the Bader Collection at the Agnes Etherington Art Centre, the AGO welcomes a remarkable selection of seventeenth century Dutch paintings. Shown in dialogue with paintings from the AGO’s European Collection of Art, at the centre of this focused installation are seven artworks attributed to Rembrandt van Rijn (1606-1669), shown together for the first time. Featuring intensely observed still life paintings, detailed interiors and mesmerizing portraits, these striking artworks offer a rare glimpse of Dutch artistry at work. This exhibition is co-curated by Adam Harris Levine, AGO Associate Curator European Art and Suzanne van de Meerendonk, Bader Curator of European Art, Agnes Etherington Art Centre.
