Toronto’s own Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) is set to bring a show-stopping set of avante-garde artwork from some of the world’s most prominent collections. The Great Upheaval: Masterpieces from the Guggenheim Collection, 1910-1918 features close to 70 pieces from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation’s collection in New York, City including perfect paintings and spectacular sculptures.
The exhibition will be on view at the AGO from Nov. 30, 2013, to March 2, 2014. The website has stated that the installation will encourage visitors to explore “a time of tremendous creativity and artistic innovation, as artists grappled with themes of social fragmentation, technological development and the spectacle of the changing city.”
The exhibition is displayed chronologically and includes works by renowned artists who helped form the artistic avant-garde movement including, Pablo Picasso, Paul Cezanne and Paul Gauguin. The exhibition will include:
- Picasso’s ‘Le Moulin de la Galette,’ 1900
- Vasily Kandinsky’s ‘Blue Mountain,’ 1908-09
- Piet Mondrian’s ‘Summer, Dune in Zeeland,’ ca. 1910
