Francis Bacon and Henry Moore: Terror and Beauty 

April 5-July 20 at AGO

With more than 130 artworks, including paintings, sculptures, drawings, photographs and archival materials, this art exhibit draws on the artists’ experiences during times of conflict and violence.  Each piece examines how the two artists reflected differently upon torment. This is the first Canadian exhibition of Bacon’s work and includes rarely seen Moore art pieces.

China by Scott Conarroe

April 5-May 3 at Stephen Bulger Gallery

The third solo exhibit by Canadian photographer Scott Conarroe showcases China against the backdrop of a railway expansion that rivals America’s Interstates in both scope and intent. With imagery from this ongoing study, some earlier impressions, and a surprising new strain of street work, “China” describes a vast historical moment shot with human-scale dramas.
