AGO purchase 2010 10 29

Sample Project1

Toronto’s AGO announces acquisitions:

Ten works by four contemporary Canadian artists will be joining the collection of the Art Gallery of Ontario after an evening of important acquisitions at the annual art fair’s Opening Night Preview. Four works by Kingston-based artist Mike Bayne, four works by Montreal-based artist Adad Hannah, and a work each from Toronto-based An Te Liu and Vancouver-based Ron Terada were purchased with funds raised at the preview, a benefit for the AGO.

The four works by Adad Hannah are video-recorded tableaux vivants of models holding poses for extended periods and are drawn from his 2010 Traces series.
