About the exhibitions:
A CULTIVATING JOURNEY: The Herman H. Levy Legacy
This exhibition examines and celebrates the collection of significant European historical and modern art donated to the McMaster Museum of Art by Hamilton businessman Herman H. Levy in 1984. Featured are paintings by Claude Monet, Gustave Caillebotte, Gustave Courbet, Camille Pissarro, Chaim Soutine, Vincent van Gogh and more.
STRUCK BY LIKENING:
The Power & Discontents of Artworld Analogies
Guest Curator: Mark A. Cheetham
This exhibition explores commonplace declarations such as “Tom Thomson is the Van Gogh of Canada” and Norval Morrisseau is “the Picasso of the North” and the many issues raised by such comparisons. Works of art in the exhibition are drawn from the historical, modern and contemporary collection of the McMaster Museum of Art, and loans from the Art Gallery of Hamilton, the Art Museum at the University of Toronto, Museum London and the Corkin Gallery, Toronto.
SIMON GLASS: The Ten Commandments / Prohibited Weapons and The Thirteen Attributes of God
An exhibition of Simon Glass’s photo-hybrid series from the collections of McMaster Museum of Art and the Art Gallery of Hamilton. Simon Glass is an artist and educator based in Toronto. In his artistic practice, archival and original photographic imagery is combined with mystical, biblical and liturgical Hebrew.
