We launched ourselves in 2013 because there was no organization in this country exclusively dedicated to Canadian art history research education and promotion. Also, before us no organization was creating a comprehensive web resource on the subject. The ACI is a not-for-profit educational organization based at Massey College at the University of Toronto. We are a registered Canadian charity.
We are dedicated to making Canadian art history a contemporary conversation. We promote the study of an inclusive multi-vocal Canadian art history to as broad an audience as possible, in both English and French, within Canada and internationally..
