150 Years 150 Works: Canadian Art as Historical Act

From the Galerie de l'UQAM at the University of Quebec at Montreal comes 150 Years 150 Works (150 Ans 150 Oeuvres), a virtual exhibition of "works that have in some way shaped or changed...[Canada's] history over the past century and a half." This virtual exhibition, which is available in French and in English, features one artwork created in every year between 1867 (Jean Paul Lemieux Charlottetown revisitee) and 2016 (Kent Monkman's The Daddies). These selections are culled from a number of "major museums, university galleries, and private collections" across Canada. As explained on the exhibition's homepage, visitors may explore this exhibition in a variety of ways. Those interested in exploring the art chronologically can do so via a timeline that runs vertically along the left side of the exhibition's homepage. Alternatively, visitors can also explore this collection through four themes: Representing history, Making history, Expanding history, and Reopening history. Each selection is accompanied by a short description and information about where the artwork is held.
