Across North America and abroad, cultural organizations have been asked to present solutions to help eradicate the systemic racism that exists in our societies and institutions. At the Art Canada Institute we are listening. We recognize that art history has obscured and overlooked artists who are Black, Indigenous, and people of colour. This online exhibition celebrates the works of fifteen Black Canadian artists—historical and contemporary—to help change the conversation and build a multi-vocal narrative. In addition to this list there are many more names to know—they are essential to redefining how we understand and appreciate this country’s art.
