Members' Access: Life Between Islands: Caribbean-British Art, 1950s to Now

Wednesday, December 6 - Friday, December 8, 2023
Art Gallery of Ontario

Join us for exclusive Members’ Access from Wednesday December 6 - Friday, December 8, 2023 to mark the opening of Life Between Islands: Caribbean-British Art, 1950s to Now.  

Heralded as “Exhilarating, mighty, radical, tender” by The Observer and an “unmissable testament to creativity” by The Guardian, and showcasing 70 years of art from and inspired by the Caribbean, this landmark exhibition from Tate Britain makes its North American debut at the AGO.

Presenting visionary paintings, documentary photography, film and sculpture, Life Between Islands: Caribbean-British Art, 1950s to Now traces the extraordinary impact of the Caribbean diaspora in Britain, and their defiant creativity, as well as the region as inspiration and catalyst. 

Members always see it first! Simply show your digital Membership card to enter the Gallery and at the exhibition entrance to see the show.
