Hart House Student Acquisitions Subcommittee


The Acquisitions Subcommittee aims to promote an awareness of contemporary art practices primarily in Toronto, but also in the major art cities of Montreal, Vancouver and Halifax, bridging art historical, curatorial, collections management and museological skills in a practical and hands-on environment.

The Acquisitions Subcommittee is responsible for reviewing and acquiring new works for the permanent collection of Hart House, with the curatorial assistance of the Art Museum of the University of Toronto. Members participate in gallery and studio visits over the course of the year to familiarize themselves with the practice of contemporary artists to help make a decision. Each member of the Acquisitions Subcommittee will learn about contemporary art in a gallery setting where the functions of the gallery, including determining monetary and cultural value of the work, how it would contribute to the collection and maintenance of the work, will be examined.
