April 2015 – I went to see the Jean-Michel Basquiat exhibit at the AGO.  It was my first visit since the museum’s reopening in November 2008.

The building itself is magnificent (Frank Gehry design)!  The museum offers great exhibits (I also visited Art as Therapy, and an Emily Carr exhibit was just about to start). The permanent collection offers an impressive collection of works by Canadian artists, the Group of Seven amongst others. The Henry Moore sculpture centre is stunning (picture). And talk about a great place for coffee (picture)!

Easy access : Dundas street, downtown Toronto, close to Chinatown. Great restaurants on Baldwin street just North of the museum.  A Toronto must-see!

Un magnifique musée qui vous permettra de découvrir les peintres et sculpteurs canadiens (Borduas, Groupe des 7, Moore, etc.) et de visiter des expositions temporaires des plus intéressantes! Facile d’accès, au centre-ville de Toronto, tout près de Chinatown. Plusieurs bons restos tout près, sur la rue Baldwin. À voir!
