Canadian Modern

June 28, 2024-February 16, 2025

Explore innovative modern designs from mid-century homeware to a psychedelic vintage dress, crafted by Canadians whose works reflect and define the global trend in Canadian Modern. Highlighting the experimentation, innovation and ingenuity behind 100 culturally significant objects created in Canada, Canadian Modern is a testament to the ground-breaking creativity of some of the Great White North’s best designers. Featuring additional pieces from British Columbia’s provincial collections, this atmospheric and illuminating exhibition illustrates the story of craft-making in a local and national context while offering a look at Canada’s unique place in the global modern design and craft movement.

Canadian Modern is produced and circulated by ROM (Royal Ontario Museum), Toronto, Canada.
