This special Access tour offers an opportunity to explore works from the Gallery’s permanent collection, featured in the exhibition Kids Take Over and Restless: Recent Acquisitions.

On these tours, participants will discover the tactile and sensorial aspects of artworks by Guud San Glans Robert Davidson’s monumental painting Octopus (2014) and Gathie Falk’s playful ceramic fruit stacks, to Chantal Gibson’s radical modifications of historical books and Annie Pootoogook’s touching family portrait Listening to the Radio (2005-06), as well as works by Evelyn Roth, Kimsooja, Paul Wong and more.
