Links as Bones: Sorel Etrog and the Fragile Body

August 5, 2021 – May 15, 2022

Location: Third Floor

In 1967, while living in Italy, the Jewish Canadian artist Sorel Etrog was involved in a life-threatening car accident, breaking both legs and injuring his right hand. Shaken by the accident, Etrog began to explore the fragility of the human body through his artworks. Exhibiting more than half of AGW’s collection of Sorel Etrog’s work with loans from The Estate of Sorel Etrog, the show is the first exhibition to date exploring the impact of these life events on Etrog’s artistic practice, allowing viewers to consider a powerful body of work with new understanding. It is also the first exhibition in over 20 years to focus on Etrog's paintings and drawings, revealing another facet of this important artist's career.
