AGO CINEMATIC INTERVENTION

AGO Cinematic Intervention
Installed at the AGO for the 'First Thursdays' event as a cinematic intervention in the Canadian collection.
2013

"Toronto artist Layne Hinton's Projector No. 1 has been positioned in relation to Emily Carr's Indian Church and two paintings by Lawren Harris to establish a temporary dialogue between three iconic static objects and a contemporary machine that struggles to focus as it produces a fleeting, unstable rendering. Positioning new work by young Toronto artists in relation to the permanent collection is an emerging curatorial strategy in the AGO's Canadian department. Through such interventions, we look to provoke a renewed engagement with the collection and to also de-familiarize well-known works."

- Andrew Hunter, the AGO's Fredrik S. Eaton Curator, Canadian Art.
