Exhibition Schedule

Indigenous and Northern Affairs Canada was the first federal government institution to support the development of Canadian Aboriginal art in the 1960s. The more than 4000 artworks in the INAC Aboriginal Art Collection were obtained through various acquisition and exhibition programs, as well as gifts and donations. The Collection is one of the most important and comprehensive art collections of contemporary Canadian Aboriginal art in Canada.
