Unapologetic: Championing Canadian Art in the World

Canadians are infamous for apologizing – for everything, it seems. But they should never apologize for their art. Join McMichael Executive Director and North Star curator Ian Dejardin as he examines a handpicked selection of Canadian masterpieces and shares how he was inspired by the comment, “Won’t Europeans just laugh at the Group of Seven?” to follow the path that ultimately led him across the Atlantic to the McMichael.

Speaker: Ian Dejardin
