Collection of the Canada Council Art Bank
17 Aug 2013 – 10 Nov 2013

Founded in 1972, the Canada Council Art Bank purchases contemporary art and rents it to federal government offices. Among the aims of the Art Bank are the support of Canadian artists through purchases, broadening the audience for contemporary art, and representing the national visual imagination.

The Art Bank in the 21st Century is intended to expose a composite Canadian identity. The exhibition contains drawings, paintings, photographs and mixed-media works acquired since 2001, when special efforts were made to solicit art from under-represented groups. Selected according to the gender and cultural identity of the artists, the exhibition showcases recent works by women, Inuit and persons of First Nations and immigrant descent.

The 24 artists taking part include Sonny Assu, Kristin Bjornerud, Brendan Fernandes, Susanna Heller, George Littlechild and Ramona Ramlochand.
Support from the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts council and Kingston Arts Council is gratefully acknowledged.
