The Doris McCarthy Gallery kicks off the 2010/11 season with a new exhibition, Traffic: Conceptual Art in Canada 1965 - 1980.

Co-presented across the University of Toronto Galleries, this is the first major exhibition to present a comprehensive showing of Conceptual Art works from across the country, bearing witness to the emergence of a cheeky, intellectually powered, no-holds-barred global phenomenon. Traffic includes work in a diversity of media by over 70 Canadian artists, many of them internationally renowned. Concerns with place and geography inform the structure of the exhibition, which is organized around urban and regional centres and some of the lines of traffic in between.

At the DMG, we will be presenting the Toronto / London / Guelph exhibitions, including works by Ian Carr-Harris, Robin Collyer, Carole Condé and Karl Beveridge, Greg Curnoe, General Idea, Arnaud Maggs, Michael Snow, Lisa Steele, Joyce Wieland and many others.

For more information on the exhibition, and its other venues, please see our website -

Traffic runs to November 28, 2010. As always, admission is free and everyone is welcome.
