Duration: 41:31

A conversation with AGO insiders about how the Contemporary Collection came to be.

Connected to Paralleling the Permanent Collection, an eye-opening new series of exhibitions that reveals how you can own art by the same artists whose works grace the walls of the Art Gallery of Ontario. Starting with the Contemporary Collection, AR+SG illustrates how the Canadian art icons are not unattainable.

Featuring:

Shiralee Hudson, Interpretive Planner,
Maureen Boles, Acquisitions Assistant, Curatorial Affairs
Yael Dunkelman, former AGO Contemporary Curatorial Committee member
