Collection Count + Care with Sarindar Dhaliwal, Edmund Yeamans Walcott Henderson and Joyce Wieland

Collection Count + Care seeks relationships within and conversations across the collection. What stories does the collection tell?

Prise en compte, prise à cœur cherche à tisser des liens et des dialogues entre les œuvres de la collection. Quelles histoires la collection raconte-t-elle?


Alicia Boutilier, Chief Curator/Curator of Canadian Historical Art introduces Collection Count + Care. Curated works in twos and threes hold space, or “take the stage,” for biweekly intervals from 14 June to 4 December 2022, as we say goodbye to them temporarily.
