Canadian Art magazine is published by the Canadian Art Foundation, a national non-profit organization. Our print, digital, educational and programming initiatives empower diverse audiences to understand, debate and be inspired by art.
What We Do
Your gift shapes a national conversation about art that’s incisive, intelligent and inclusive.
We rely on the generous support of individuals and organizations to publish Canadian Art, Canada’s most widely-read visual arts magazine, and to sustain educational programs for the public.
Who we are
Artists tell stories about their stories—write about idiosyncratic histories, side interests or obsessions, curiosities and unknowns. Lateral, divergent thinking can produce ideas that change course, that shift the direction of a project or a practice. All the stories in this issue are written by artists: some detail the day-to-day aspects of one’s personal life; others mine obscure archives to find meaning. These oblique, seemingly tangential, interests offer different ways of understanding artists and their objects of study, especially in a time of flux.
