Created by the National Gallery of Canada, this exhibition has already toured several Canadian museums: the Vancouver Art Gallery, the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Glenbow Alberta Institute, the Edmonton Art Gallery and the Saskatoon Gallery and Conservatory Corporation. The exhibition was organized by Charles Hill, Assistant Curator of Post-Confederation Art, and includes more than 100 works. For the abbreviated version at the Musée d?art contemporain, 55 of these works were selected. The bilingual two-volume catalogue includes seven studies. On November 29, 1975, the Musée d?art contemporain will present a series of films on artists such as David Milne, Lemieux, Lismer and Pellan. Illustrated by F.H. Varley?s Dhârâna (1932).
