This March the AGO’s Prints and Drawings department invites you to join them for a Date with Dada, the newest edition of its monthly Date with [Art] series.

Each Wednesday throughout the month, stop by the Marvin Gelber Print & Drawing Study Centre for the Open Door program, running from 1 to 8 p.m. Enjoy tours of the Study Centre and see original works by original works by Dada artists including Jean Arp, Max Ernst and Marcel Duchamp. Before 5 p.m., you can even ask staff members to bring specific works out from storage for viewing.

“Kicking the Traces: Dada 1916-1923” is the title of this month’s Second Friday Talk, happening on March 14 at 11 a.m. (the Study Centre doors open at 10:30 a.m. for viewing works). This is a free talk by one of our wonderful Prints and Drawings volunteers, featuring original works by Dada artists.
