Diane Arbus in 2020: AGO Presents First Major Canadian Solo Exhibit Of The Artist In 30 Years

2020 is off to the right start with a spectacular new Diane Arbus exhibit coming to the AGO.

Diane Arbus: Photographs, 1956–1971 will chronologically span the storied and engrossing career of this Guggenheim Fellowship-winning NYC photographer, who revolutionized portraiture through her expansive range of subjects, before her death by suicide.

Arbus turned her lens on nudists, suburban families, circus performers and celebrities alike; all with a single, probing intensity. Diane Arbus: Photographs, 1956–1971 features 150 photographs and is curated by Sophie Hackett, the AGO’s Curator, Photography. The exhibit will also feature a special screening of A Slideshow and Talk by Diane Arbus on February 21st, offering a unique opportunity to hear the late, famed artist discuss her own work. 

Diane Arbus: Photographs, 1956–1971 opens up on Feb. 22nd and runs through May. Get the details here.
