VOICES: ARTISTS ON ART | 2017-1967

Voices: artists on art | 2017-1967 is an artists’ project with publication conceived and curated by Yvonne Lammerich and Ian Carr-Harris.

 

In 1967, the National Gallery of Canada hosted 51 artists in Toronto’s Nathan Phillips Square in a ground-breaking look at what contemporary art could mean for a public looking to artists to help define a national historical narrative. Fifty years later, commemorating that exhibition, Voices: artists on art presents a series of deeply insightful interviews that open a door into 51 studios of artists working across Canada in 2017.
