A gallery is transformed into a basketball court at the AGO in Brian Jungen Friendship Centre
Air Jordan sneakers transformed into masks, golf bags into totems, a whale skeleton made of patio chairs, a gallery resembling a gymnasium – Brian Jungen’s singular vision has returned to Toronto in a compelling major exhibition at the AGO. Brian Jungen Friendship Centre explores this internationally renowned artist’s unique approach to sculpture and large-scale installations made from everyday objects. This exhibition includes a broad range of Jungen’s work, including sculpture, painting, drawing and film, and offers a revealing look into his personal archive. The exhibition is on view now until August 25th.
