How does Canadian art history connect with contemporary Canadian art? Under the Influence answers this important question by exploring the practices of today's leading artists and revealing how their work has been shaped, inspired, and grounded by Canadian art history. The first program of its kind, ACI explores how contemporary Canadian art is deeply referential and reverential of the nation's past.
