The National Gallery of Canada unveils the largest display of Canadian art in the world with Our Masterpieces, Our Stories. In the newly designed Canadian and Indigenous Galleries, visitors will discover the history of art in Canada, from its earliest beginnings to 1968. Photographs and Indigenous art will be integrated into the Canadian collection and displayed side by side to better represent the complete narrative of art in Canada.

The narrative will continue into the Contemporary Galleries to cover 1968 to the present day, and will feature highlights from the Gallery’s world-renowned collection, exploring major themes and artistic movements in modern and contemporary art in Canada. The interactive educational hub will offer immersive experiences for visitors of all ages and interest levels.

Programs and activities are designed to help visitors connect with the national Canadian and Indigenous collections in ways that are personally meaningful.
