National Gallery of Canada - Established in 1880

Established in 1880, The National Gallery of Canada has played a pivotal role with Canada's thriving art culture.  With a foremost mission to provide the best access to works of art for all Canadians, the gallery maintains Canada's premier collection of Indigenous, American, and Asian art, as well as a selection of European Art dating back to the 14th century from the 21st.  

In 1934 The National Gallery arranged the first Canadian International Salon of Photographic Art and just two years ago, in 2015, the Gallery founded the Canadian Photography Institute which is a global multidisciplinary research center dedicated to the history, evolution and future of photography.
