An artists’ project conceived by Yvonne Lammerich and Ian Carr-Harris

The present is hollow without a future aware of its past. Fifty years ago, in 1967, the National Gallery hosted 51 artists in Toronto’s Nathan Phillips Square in a groundbreaking look at what contemporary art could mean for a public looking to artists to help define a national historical narrative. That narrative continues to be defined today.

In a link to that exhibition, Voices: artists on art presents a series of deeply insightful interviews that open a door into 51 studios of artists currently working across Canada in 2017, while also reminding us how powerfully expressed were the thoughts of those 51 artists in 1967.

This project is comprised of two components: a rare opportunity to access the 51 video interviews and to present artists’ multi-media installations that bridge the historical with the contemporary.
