Sold Out Curator’S Talk: Andrew Hunter On Lawren Harris And The Ward says
Presented in conjuction with the exhibition "The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris", opening July 1:

Andrew Hunter, the AGO’s Fredrik S. Eaton Curator of Canadian Art, explores the historic Toronto of Lawren Harris: a city, in the 1910s as today, of great diversity and dense urban growth. Harris often painted in the Ward (St. John’s Ward), a downtown neighbourhood bordered by College and Queen, University and Yonge streets. The Ward was of deep significance to First Nations communities; it marked the end of the Underground Railroad for many fugitive slaves; it housed the city’s first Chinatown; and was home to the immigrant poor of Europe and the United Kingdom.
