Watch This Space: Contemporary Art from the AGO Collection

Until Summer 2013

“But, after all, the aim of art is to create space — space that is not compromised by decoration or illustration, space within which the subjects of painting can live.”

– Frank Stella (1986)

Watch This Space: Contemporary Art from the AGO Collection invites visitors to consider how the universal concept of space has inspired artists and how it affects our own lives. Compelling works in a variety of media by both Canadian and international artists explore issues and ideas related to space — be it physical locations, psychological realms or the interstitial places that exist somewhere between the real and the imagined. The installation includes longstanding collection favourites as well as new acquisitions.
