Immersive exhibits are an intriguing new way to experience art. The Immersive Van Gogh exhibit has been drawing crowds and interest for over a year and is a must-see.

04. Picasso: Painting in the Blue Period
Currently, the AGO has an exhibit on Picasso, during his revolutionary Blue Period. The exhibition explores his evolution, influences and talent as an artist. Interestingly, some of his canvases were reused and painted over. This exhibition uses state-of-the-art technology to dive into what those hidden paintings are and what their relevance is. This exhibition is a fascinating way to explore Picasso’s work outside of his more well-known eras. The exhibition is on until January 19, 2022.
