AGO Aboriginal Art Exhibition ReviewAn exhibition displaying various artworks by Aboriginal Artists from The Great Lakes region opened several weeks ago at The Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto. The exhibit, Before and after the Horizon: Anishinaabe Artists of The Great Lakes, is a wondrous and bold exhibit that looks to change how Canadian art history is presented.
