To celebrate the launch of the AGO’s major fall exhibition, Anthropocene, visitors during Nuit Blanche Toronto will be invited to contemplate how all of us (individually and collectively) are leaving a profound human signature on the planet.

Through video installation, the artists behind Anthropocene - Jennifer Baichwal and Nicholas de Pencier will create a compelling immersive experience in the AGO’s Walker Court, offering visitors the opportunity to experience both old growth forests and deforestation on Vancouver Island, and to consider pristine environments and our impact on them.

Anthropocene is organized in partnership with the Canadian Photography Institute of the National Gallery of Canada, in partnership with Fondazione MAST, Bologna, Italy.

The Art Gallery of Ontario is one of the largest art museums in North America. The AGO’s collection of nearly 95,000 works ranges from cutting-edge contemporary art to European masterpieces, and from works by the Group of Seven to established and emerging Indigenous and Canadian artists, with a photography collection that tracks the impact of the medium and focused collections of Western and Central African art. Drawing on this collection—and collaborations with museums around the world—the AGO presents diverse exhibitions and programs that bring people together and spark timely conversations.
