Virtual Tour of “A Like Vision”: The Group of Seven at 100 with Jon Sasaki: Homage
12:30 to 1:30 pm
About the tour
Follow along on a virtual guided tour of “A Like Vision”: The Group of Seven at 100, which celebrates the centenary of the Group of Seven’s first exhibition. Revisit old favourites and experience new surprises, including a look at the new exhibition Jon Sasaki: Homage. Beginning on June 20, this virtual tour will also explore Sasaki’s suite of photographs that depict petri dishes with bloomed bacterial cultures derived from swabs of the palettes and brushes used by members of the Group of Seven and Tom Thomson. These large-scale works reveal microscopic details and affirm a playful reverence towards the Group’s legacy while reframing the genre of landscape painting through the lens of photography.
This free interactive experience provides our visitors with the opportunity to examine images of artworks up close while remaining responsibly distanced in their own homes.
