Virtual Tour of “A Like Vision”: The Group of Seven at 100 with Jon Sasaki: Homage


Sundays


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. Each 60-minute virtual tour will be limited to 40 participants per session to allow for questions and discussion, so please register to ensure your spot.

An internet connection, microphone and camera-enabled computer, tablet or smartphone is required. The virtual tour will be delivered via the video conferencing app Zoom. You do not require a Zoom account to participate; the link to access the class will be sent to you in advance.

How to join: Once you have registered for the tour you will be sent an email with all necessary information and details about how to access the class online. If you have any questions please contact our Creative Learning Department.
