The Thomson Collection at the AGO Art Experience
Visitors to the Transformed AGO will discover the Thomson Collection set in 30 remarkable galleries on three levels. The Canadian galleries - which run nearly the whole length of the building - have a marvellous sense of space with superb daylight and yet retain a sense of intimacy.
The suite of European galleries offers an exhilarating discovery of materials and a voyage through centuries of superb craftsmanship enhanced by a simple and elegant setting with superb lighting. The ship models are set within an innovative installation with curved glass cases that echo the sea. This not only highlights their history and their artistry but also reveals their exquisite craftsmanship and detail, which so captivated Ken Thomson.
