Thomson was a contemporary of the Group of Seven who died mysteriously on Canoe Lake in Muskoka at the age of 39.
The exhibition takes a critical approach to the country’s fascination with Thomson. It takes cues from the eye of Joyce Wieland, who pointed out in the 1970s that “Thomson is Canada.”
The exhibition runs through November and spans four galleries at the McMichael in Kleinburg, Ontario.
