The JUNO Tour of Canadian Art. And Henry Moore too!
February 16 to August 31, 2011
To mark the 40th anniversary of the JUNO Awards (March 27 in Toronto), the Canadian Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences (CARAS) and the AGO are kicking off an innovative project pairing great Canadian art — and the AGO’s great collection of Henry Moore sculptures — with great Canadian music. JUNO Award–winning musicians Alpha Yaya Diallo, Buck 65, Dan Hill, Gord Downie, Hawksley Workman, Jane Bunnett, Measha Brueggergosman and Tanya Tagaq visited the AGO and chose artworks with particular meaning for them. Their recorded responses — along with a piece of their music that they feel resonates with the art — can be found, and heard, next to the art. In the Canadian collection and in the Henry Moore gallery. Until August 31.
