Taking over the entire fourth floor of the contemporary tower, the AGO’s exhibit "Every. Now. Then: Reframing Nationhood" explores three main questions: Where has Canada come from, what it is now and where is it going? The installation opens June 29 and features 33 projects created by artists from across Canada. "At the heart of this exhibition is our fundamental belief that Canada is a dynamic work in progress," says curator Andrew Hunter.
