Two on the Scene is an exhibition of photographs by Michel Lambeth and Tess Taconis from our permanent collection. This installation captures the mood and conveys a sense of the era of The Isaacs Gallery in the 1960s and 1970s, as well as reveals some of the key personalities associated with the Gallery, including artists, writers, musicians, collectors, dealers and art critics. The key role of the Gallery and the artists associated with Av Isaacs will be celebrated, explored and revisited in Isaacs Seen at the AGO, University of Toronto Art Centre, Hart House and Textile Museum of Canada throughout the Summer.
