AGO's Toronto: Tributes + Tributaries, 1971 - 1989 Exhibition ReviewPhilosopher George Santayana famously warned that "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it." As I wandered through the AGO's Toronto: Tributes + Tributaries exhibit, Santayana's quote kept echoing through my mind. The exhibition gives visitors a glimpse into the gritty history of Toronto's art world from 1971 - 1989 and the emerging artists that pushed the boundaries of 'conventional art'.
