The Art Gallery of Ontario is showing the major exhibition Picasso: Masterpieces from the Musée National Picasso, Paris until August 26. At the same time, the AGO has delved into the gallery’s own history with a side exhibit based the hugely successful 1964 exhibition Picasso and Man, shown at the then-named Art Gallery of Toronto. Picasso and Man was at its time one of the largest art exhibitions ever held in Canada — over one hundred thousand people viewed the show’s five-week run.
Look Again: Picasso and Man runs until September 30 and is the first of a series of exhibitions that will look back at the gallery’s own history. It includes footage of the uncrating of works for the 1964 exhibition, candid photos, and other archival materials. For more about the Look Again show, visit the Art Gallery of Ontario.
