Struck by Likening:The Power & Discontents of Artworld Analogies

19 August – 2 December 2017

Guest Curator:  Mark A. Cheetham (Professor of Art History and Senior Fellow at Massey College, University of Toronto)

This exhibition explores commonplace declarations such as “Tom Thomson is the Van Gogh of Canada” and Norval Morrisseau is “the Picasso of the North” and the many issues raised by such comparisons. Works of art in the exhibition are drawn from the historical, modern and contemporary collection of the McMaster Museum of Art, and loans from the Art Gallery of Hamilton, the Art Museum at the University of Toronto, Museum London and the Corkin Gallery, Toronto.

CURATOR’s TALK - Getting Some Distance on Likening:  Wednesday October 4, 12:30 – 1:20 pm
