The Great Upheaval: Masterpieces from the Guggenheim Collection, 1910–1918 showcases the art made before and during World War I that initiated modernism with a bang. It presents more than 60 paintings by such great artists as Marc Chagall, Vasily Kandinsky, Henri Matisse, and Pablo Picasso, who all emerged during that exciting period. The work is evidence of the styles that were born during that time, but also of the social, political, and technological changes that were occurring in the world. The collection, which is on loan from the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, will be displayed until March 2. The Art Gallery of Ontario is the only Canadian host on the exhibit's journey.

Admission for students and youth aged 6–17 is regularly $16.50. Admission is free for children aged 5 and under. Tickets also include general admission to all of Art Gallery of Ontario's permanent collections and exhibitions. Current highlights include Just Like Me: Explore, Imagine, Create, which examines sculpture and art from the point of view of children. There's also Light My Fire: Some Propositions about Portraits and Photography, an examination or portraiture, of which the Toronto Star said "if you can’t find a spark for yourself here, then maybe photography, simply, isn’t for you." Finally there's Modest Livelihood, a collaborative film on use of native land made by a pair of indigenous artists.

Art Gallery of Ontario

Art Gallery of Ontario may house a collection of more than 80,000 works created between 100 AD and the present, but the building isn't just a 583,000-square-foot space to display art. It's a work of art itself. Renowned, Toronto-born architect Frank Gehry designed the museum's revamped and expanded look, which blends a modern aesthetic with the building's original stately façade. Memorable architectural elements include a spiral staircase, as well as the Galleria Italia, which runs the length of an entire city block The contrast between the warm Douglas-fir accents and the massive glass windows complements the museum's overall mission to expose the public to both classical and contemporary art.

Such art includes an ever-changing assortment of special exhibitions, as well as the thousands of noteworthy pieces showcased in its permanent collections. The Canadian galleries emphasize artistic creations from Toronto and Ontario in particular. One of the crown jewels of the collection is its immense assortment of contemporary Inuit art, including Manasie Akpaliapik's sculpture made of materials such as whalebone, horns, and baleen. Looking beyond Canadian borders, the gallery also proudly displays exhibits ranging from 19th-century French impressionism and 17th-century Italian paintings to traditional African sculptures and prehistoric Australian Aboriginal artifacts.

Great guided tours.

It's very warm in most of the rooms, so it's better to layer up than wear something too warm which can't be taken off.
