Thursday Jun 29, 2017 to Sunday Feb 18, 2018
10:30 AM until 05:30 PM


The Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) marks Canada’s 150th anniversary with Every.Now.Then: Reframing Nationhood, a dynamic contemporary exhibition that aims to address the mistakes of the past, rewrite and reclaim history, and articulate the need to take certain moments to stop, reflect, question and analyze as we move forward as a country. This exhibition critically explores three urgent questions through the eyes of some of the country’s best emerging and established artists: where has Canada come from, what it is now, and where is it going? The multimedia installation features 33 projects by artists from across Canada. The artworks featured engage with a broad range of cultural, traditional, spiritual and land-based stories, bringing together both the familiar and the unexpected with strong Indigenous voices running throughout. Every.Now.Then: Reframing Nationhood is the anchor of the AGO's ambitious slate of offerings that observe the Canada 150 moment, which will also feature a range of smaller exhibitions, installations, digital initiatives and special programs. For full line-up of programming, visit Tickets for the exhibition are included in the price of general admission and can be purchased at, in person and by phone at 416-979-6648. Tickets are $11 for youth ages 17 and under, $16 for seniors and $19.5 for adults. Admission is free for children under 5 and AGO Members.
