The McGill Visual Arts Collection is committed to strengthening local, contemporary Indigenous art practices in Canada and is actively working to increase the diversity and visibility of Indigenous art – modern and contemporary – across all campuses. This interactive map provides an overview of the curated spaces and other installations that feature Indigenous art at the University. If possible, we encourage users of this map to visit the physical locations to appreciate these artworks first-hand.
The McGill Visual Arts Collection is located on land which has long served as a site of meeting and exchange amongst Indigenous peoples, including the Haudenosaunee and Anishinabeg nations. The McGill Visual Arts Collection honours, recognizes, and respects these nations as the traditional stewards of the lands and waters on which it stands.
The McGill Visual Arts Collection would like to thank the generous donors that have helped expand our selection of artworks by Indigenous artists, as well as those whose support helps make the research, conservation, and diffusion of Indigenous art at McGill possible.
