At Work: Hesse, Goodwin, Martin

September 22, 2010 to January 2, 2011

“absolute standout”Toronto Star

This fall, the fourth floor of the AGO will feature three linked yet unique exhibitions presented under one title. At Work explores very particular aspects of the remarkable work of three major international artists: Eva Hesse (1936-1970), Agnes Martin (1912-2004) and Betty Goodwin (1923-2008).

While their artistic vocabularies are diverse, presented together in At Work, the installation will tell a compelling story of the labour of art and provide new insights into these artists’ dedicated and focused work in the studio. Major works by each will be presented alongside their writings, studio and archival material, as well as documentary video and photography.

For a behind-the-scenes look at the production of this exhibition, visit Work In Progress, an AGO blog by Museum Studies student Kendra Ainsworth.
