There’s extra time to consort with monsters at AGO’s Guillermo del Toro exhibit

If you feel like getting arty for the holidays, two Toronto galleries are expanding access to two popular exhibits.

The Art Gallery of Ontario is keeping its Guillermo del Toro: At Home With Monsters exhibit open evenings after Christmas to allow more people to see it before it closes Jan. 7.

And the Aga Khan Museum is holding over HERE: Locating Contemporary Canadian Artists for a week, also closing Jan. 7.

HERE, a collection of video, textiles, painting and sculpture from more than 20 artists that examines the complexity and diversity of Canadian identity, and celebrates Canada 150, was supposed to close New Year’s Day. Now the show will not only extend into the new year, the museum says it will include a “surprise closing collaboration,” with details yet to be announced.

At the AGO, At Home With Monsters features paintings, photographs, curiosities, movie props, film clips, costumes and more from and inspired by the horror and fantasy collection of director del Toro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Hellboy), whose Toronto-shot The Shape of Water has become an awards season contender.
