  • Rebel Image Makers at the AGO Outsiders: American Photography and Film 1950s–1980s features more than 300 works by some of the world’s best-known artists. As co-curator Jim Shedden said in an interview with NGC Magazine, the works in the exhibition “capture something of the real human energy that was in America then, in subtle and radical ways not represented by the mainstream.”
  • Origins and Ancestry: Abraham Anghik Ruben

    Narratives permeate the sculptures of Canadian artist Abraham Anghik Ruben, telling tales of war, trade, hunting, spirituality, and ancient Inuit and Viking beliefs. Ruben is the subject of an exhibition at the Museum of Inuit Art in Toronto: Beyond Aurora Borealis: Abraham Anghik Ruben, which features a collection of new, large-scale sculptures.

  • Barnett Newman: The Late Work

    In 2015, the Menil Collection in Houston, Texas, mounted an exhibition on Barnett Newman’s final five years, a period that includes Voice of Fire. The exhibition catalogue, Barnett Newman: The Late Work, 1965–1970 — featuring paintings and sculpture from several institutions, including three works from the National Gallery of Canada — is a spare and elegant tribute to one of the most important American artists of the mid-twentieth century.

  • Jewels from the McMichael Collection

    When Sarah Stanners assumed her current role as chief curator at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection last spring, she made it a priority to explore the gallery’s hidden gems. One of her discoveries was “a treasure trove” of works on paper, stored in a special climate- and light-controlled vault. The find was especially fortuitous, given Stanners’ personal fondness for such works.
