Max Dean

Portrait of the Artist as Artist

The Portrait Gallery of Canada is about identities, about who we are. Recognizing the challenges of history, we tackle present and future concerns by sharing our stories.

In keeping with the Portrait Gallery of Canada’s mission to examine the many ways in which we choose to give form to our human identity, the exhibition, Max Dean: Portrait of the Artist as Artist explores his life as an artist and the unique experiences that have come to shape his art.

Experience WHO ARE WE – a new project by Max Dean that explores ideas of choice, self-expression and co-authorship. WHO ARE WE invited attendees at Art Toronto 2022 to participate as both artist and subject in this interactive installation.
