CCA on View is a visual guidebook to the exhibitions produced by the Canadian Centre for Architecture since its founding in 1979. From The Preservation and Conservation of Prints and Drawings of Ernest Cormier (1885–1980), mounted in the lobby of the Canadian Centre for Architecture’s first office space in 1982, to Besides, History, exhibited in 2017 in the main galleries of the CCA’s current building at 1920, rue Baile, each exhibition is presented through installation views, photographs of exhibition objects, previously unpublished working documents, and short descriptive statements. These artifacts, interspersed with commentary from CCA directors, curators, and collaborators, illustrate the central positions and arguments taken up in each project. CCA on View delves into the institutional archives to highlight the character and trajectory of the CCA’s approach to curatorial research.
