Visitors won’t believe their eyes (or they’ll at least do a double-take) this summer as the AGO offers a magical new way to experience art. From Toronto-based digital artist Alex Mayhew comes ReBlink, an innovative augmented reality experience that taps into the power of leading-edge technology to give visitors the chance to see works from the AGO’s Canadian and European Collections in a whole new way. 

Using a custom app for smartphones and tablets, visitors use their device’s camera to unlock Mayhew’s modern twists on historical works of art. Mayhew highlights how much we have — and haven’t — changed over time, inviting visitors to look at paintings such as Evisceration of a Roebuck with a Portrait of a Married Couple, Drawing Lots and Marchesa Casati through his unique 21st century lens. By looking at a selected work using a smartphone or tablet, visitors will see something unexpected – the painting’s subjects coming alive, reflecting a vision of our daily reality in the 21st century.
