Art Gallery of Ontario
McCaul Street Entrance
Celebrate the exhibition opening of the AGO's latest special exhibition with a special event just for teachers. Join David Wistow, exceptional speaker and AGO Interpretive Planner, for an engaging introduction to The Great Upheaval. Hear more about this exceptional chapter in European and world history, that ushered in sweeping social change, technological developments and scientific advances.
The Great Upheaval spotlights the dynamism of this fertile period – as artists hurtled toward abstraction and the ultimate “great upheaval” of a catastrophic war – while presenting some of the foundational modern masterpieces that shaped the art of future generations. After the talk enjoy coffee and tea with fellow educators before visiting the new exhibition.
This exhibition is ideal for school groups as it has curriculum links to visual arts, social studies, Canadian and World Studies, languages and technology & society.
