Snow in July

July 19th, 2012

A crowd gathers in Walker Court the evening of July 18, awaiting the arrival of artist Michael Snow.

After winning the 2011 Gershon Iskowitz Prize, renowned artist Michael Snow is exploring the art of looking with an exhibition at the AGO. On from July 18 to December 9, 2012, Michael Snow: Objects of Vision highlights Snow’s continuing contribution to Canadian art and his ongoing investigation into visual perception.

On the evening of July 18, the Gallery held a public reception and artist talk to celebrate the exhibition’s opening. Snow, along with AGO CEO and director Matthew Teitelbaum, Gershon Iskowitz Foundation chair Jeanette Hlinka and AGO curator Georgiana Uhlyarik, spoke to a buzzing audience in Walker Court. Afterward, Snow and the AGO’s Gillian McIntyre stood surrounded by his sculptures in the Signy Eaton Gallery and discussed the work. See more snapshots from the event below!
