Apollo

Diane Arbus: Photographs, 1956–1971

Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto

NOW CLOSED

With an eye that captured the uncanny in the everyday, the American photographer documented the broad sweep of life in New York in the 1950s and ’60s. This exhibition of 150 black-and-white portraits is drawn from the landmark acquisition of 522 works donated to the Art Gallery of Ontario in 2016. Find out more from the AGO’s website.
