Ago First Thursday: What Now says
Has 2016 been the worst year of our lives? From the untimely deaths of too many artists and icons to the rise of nationalism, xenophobia and oppression across the world, for many, the answer is clearly yes. So, how to move forward? How to find hope? How to heal? The December First Thursday brings a group of artists together to think and feel our way toward new realities and new beginnings. After the deluge, let’s come together and move.

+ Zebra Katz, the Brooklyn-based artist, rapper and producer is our headliner,
+ Projects by Lisa Smolkin, ReBaie by Rebée and Yuula Benivolski,
+ First Thursdays partners with Canadian Art for a series of talks presented in conjunction with the launch of their winter issue, themed on “Futures.” Speakers include Merray Gerges, Erdem Taşdelen, Kai Cheng Thom and Syrus Marcus Ware.
+Out of the Vaults display devoted to Annie Pootogook with a pop-up talk on the artist by Wanda Nanibush, AGO Assistant Curator, Canadian and Indigenous Art
+Artist-designed program by Maggie Groat and Jimmy Limit
