About the Art Canada Institute
The Art Canada Institute (ACI) is a dynamic, educational arts organization, dedicated to making Canadian art history a contemporary, multi-vocal conversation. With a digital library of more than forty expert-authored books, a robust online art education program, and a dynamic homepage, the ACI publishes original content online, in English and French, on the multifaceted artists who define this country’s visual landscape. In a few short years, this young not-for-profit organization has become the go-to digital resource for educators, museum-goers, art lovers, and aficionados. In 2021, ACI is launching the Redefining Canadian Art History Fellowship Program, an initiative to revisit and redefine the framework of art history in Canada through studies on Canadian and Indigenous artists whose lives and works are underrepresented.
