Our ability to perceive time and our desire to define it is part of what makes us human. Time permeates how we think and talk about our daily lives: never enough time, being on time, family time, taking “time” for yourself, having the time of your life. This exhibition explores sculpture’s relationship with time, featuring recent acquisitions and major works from the AGO’s collection. These dynamic artworks do not just occupy space, but also time. They invite visitors to think of art as more than an inert image or object, but also as a personal experience lived through time. Just like no two people experience time in the same way, art also changes with each visitor who encounters it.

Featuring works by major Canadian and international artists such as Geoffrey Farmer, Joseph Beuys, On Kawara, Jonathan Monk, Rachel Harrison, Rafael Lozano Hemmer, Micah Lexier, Kelly Richardson, Simon Starling, Kelly Mark and Tino Seghal.
