The Art of Canada: Director’s Cut – on now at the McMichael

Ian Dejardin, Executive Director of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, has made a personal selection of works of art from the gallery’s vaults to showcase in the exhibition, The Art of Canada: Director’s Cut. This is Dejardin’s first curated show since taking the reins of the gallery this past April.

His dip into the treasures of the McMichael collection, a display which sprawls across four of the gallery's exhibition spaces, features artworks by Tom Thomson and the Group of Seven, Emily Carr, Norval Morrisseau, David Milne, Christiane Pflug, Alex Colville, and some less familiar names. Dejardin promises many classic favourites, some that have been rarely seen, and others that might surprise an audience already familiar with Canadian art. For those visiting from abroad, this display acts as the perfect introduction to the beauty, diversity, and artistry of The Art of Canada*.

Through these choices, Dejardin takes visitors on a storytelling journey, revealing a lot about himself and how he fell in love with Canada along the way, and most importantly, showcase his deep appreciation for Canadian art. In this show he highlights the strength and depth of the gallery's core collection—a collection which continues to grow and provide a unique arts and cultural experience for the public.
