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
This issue is about the structures and systems that influence how the art world works and how artists connect with each other. We can cite sources, name those who came before us, make clear references to the work we love, but influence isn’t always apparent. It’s often ephemeral, shifting with changing tastes. Many artists in this issue—including Deanna Bowen, Ron Terada, Zachery Longboy, Aiyyana Maracle, Sara Cwynar, Elizabeth Zvonar and Hazel Meyer—address power relations and influence, working to remind us that history rarely operates in a linear fashion.
