Challenge AbEx is a test of wit, skill and ingenuity. Four challenges, each one more difficult than the last, will be set during the final three weeks of the Abstract Expressionist: New York exhibition. At each stage of the contest there are great prizes to be won, and one lucky player will also be crowned the Ultimate AbEx Challenge Champion. Find out more about Challenge AbEx

CHALLENGE ONE IS NOW CLOSED: CONGRATULATIONS TO LAURALEA RIVET WHO WAS CROWNED CHALLENGE CHAMPION

Challenge One: 
Difficulty level EASY


We’re making Challenge One nice and easy for you. We’re easing you in gradually. Playing nicely. It’s so unchallenging; it’s barely a challenge at all. The winner of the first Challenge AbEx Challenge will receive a fantastic AbEx prize pack and a pair of free tickets to come and experience the show and the rest of the Gallery. Ready? Here’s what you have to do…

  • Join the Art Gallery of Ontario on Facebook

  • Tag us* in the following Facebook status update “I’m taking part in Challenge AbEx at the Art Gallery Of Ontario.” (You can add more words if you feel like it)

  • You have 24 hours to take part in Challenge One. (Although we hope it won’t take you 24 hours to complete)

*To tag us use the “@” key immediately followed by Art Gallery of Ontario (@Art…) You should be able to select Art Gallery Of Ontario from a list once you begin typing.

Easy, right?

Competition closes at 12:00 Wednesday 17 August & we’ll be announcing the winner later that day. The winner will be picked at random from those who successfully tag us. Good luck to everyone taking part!

Don’t forget that whoever performs the best across all four challenges will be crowned the Ultimate Abex Challenge Champion. The Champion will get a bumper prize pack including a family/dual AGO Membership, a night for two at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel, AbEx goodies and more.
