The Art Gallery of Ontario is presenting a massive new art exhibit combining Indigenous traditions with modern art, pop culture and basketball . 49-year-old B-C artist Brian Jungen is known for large-scale installations and sports-inspired sculptures, including a series of masks made from ripped-apart Nike Air Jordan sneakers. The exhibit is named after Jungen’s piece Friendship Centre, in which he has transformed one of the A-G-O gallery rooms into a colourful basketball court. It opens to the public on Thursday through until August 25th.
