Over three generations, the Sobey family of Nova Scotia has demonstrated their discerning and enthusiastic commitment to Canadian art. Accompanying a major exhibition at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection and timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of the prestigious Sobey Art Award, Generations tells the story of a visionary family and their engagement with Canadian and Indigenous art.

This sweeping survey encompasses works by the beloved leaders of Canadian 20th-century art — the Group of Seven, Tom Thomson, David Milne, and Emily Carr — as well as offering a rich display of works by Cornelius Krieghoff, the Quebec Impressionists, Automatiste painters Jean Paul Riopelle and Paul-Émile Borduas, and Ukrainian Canadian artist William Kurelek, before moving onward to showcase leading contemporary artists. Among them are international artist Peter Doig, whose works draw on the legacies of Canadian art, and Indigenous artists Brenda Draney, Ursula Johnson, Kent Monkman, and Brian Jungen.

Featuring more than 200 full-colour images, Generations includes an introduction by McMichael Chief Curator Sarah Milroy, essays by McMichael Executive Director Ian A.C. Dejardin, art historians Jocelyn Anderson, John Geoghegan, and Michèle Grandbois, and an interview with contemporary artist Kent Monkman.

Sarah Milroy is Chief Curator at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. A highly respected art critic and exhibition curator, she has contributed to more than a dozen books on art, including Mary Pratt, From the Forest to the Sea: Emily Carr in British Columbia, and David Milne: Modern Painting.
