Chihuly at the Royal Ontario Museum, Toronto, ON, Canada, June 25 – January 2, 2017
Chihuly is Dale Chihuly's first public exhibition in Toronto. The exhibition is housed in 17,000 square feet of exhibition space in Garfield Weston Exhibition Hall and includes new and early works representing the breadth and scope of the artist’s vision over the last four decades.
The exhibition features eleven installations designed specifically for the Royal Ontario Museum. Ten installations are on view in the Garfield Weston Exhibition Hall and one installation is located in the Gloria Chen Court.
“Chihuly is a mesmerizing exhibition highlighting the monumental works of this singular artist. His stunning installations transform the Royal Ontario Museum - encouraging us to think differently about both art and nature”, said Josh Basseches, ROM Director and CEO.
Diane Charbonneau, the guest curator of Chihuly at the Royal Ontario Museum commented, “A key figure in the realm of studio glass, Dale Chihuly executes works that reveal a fertile imagination expressed through an extensive vocabulary borrowing freely from nature, his main source of inspiration. His wondrous pieces are the result of a perceptive exploration of colour, form, light, and space. To experience Chihuly’s installation works is a must!”
Chihuly at the Royal Ontario Museum is on view until January 2, 2017.
