The Institute’s Documentation Centre was created to collect and make accessible both printed materials and electronic media relating to Canadian art and houses recordings of lectures and symposia, as well as conference proceedings, from events organized with the support of the Jarislowsky Institute. The most extensive holdings relate to the life and work of Paul-Émile Borduas and contains files on each of his artworks, exhibition catalogues and invitations, critical writings, as well as a wealth of other archival materials. Also available is a collection of articles by the Montreal art critic and educator, Maurice Gagnon as well as materials relating to the Automatiste movement. The Jarislowsky Institute also houses the Indigenous Digital Art Archive.

The Institute’s Documentation Centre is open to the public by appointment only.
