In 100 Years: The Group of Seven and Other Voices, the AGA will present the works of some of Canada’s most celebrated artists—The Group of Seven. On May 7, 1920, the Group of Seven held their first formal exhibition at the Art Gallery of Toronto (now the Art Gallery of Ontario), initiating the first coordinated Canadian art movement. 100 Years commemorates the anniversary of the Group of Seven and charts their development from the early 1910s to the middle of the 20th century. This exhibition also includes work from the AGA collection by artists who were mentors, colleagues and students of the Group, or who worked entirely independent of their influence, offering a more expansive view of Canadian art from this period.
