The Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute

     The Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art was established in 1998 through the generous financial support of Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky. The Institute seeks to advance the greater appreciation and richer understanding of Canadian visual culture of all eras. To accomplish this goal, the Institute:

  • Supports research on Canadian art for the professional scholarly community, for pedagogical purposes at all levels of education, and most importantly for the general public.

  • Produces scholarly materials in print and electronic formats such as monographs, journals, bibliographies, catalogue raisonnés, films and videos.

  • Maintains a broad and ongoing dialogue within the academic and museum communities on the evolving nature of studies in the visual arts in Canada.

  • Collaborates on projects and publications with educational and cultural institutions, as well as the private sector.

  • Establishes links to national and international art communities through public events such as conferences and lectures.
