Harris, his influence on 20th century art and the process of putting together the upcoming exhibition, The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris. The exhibition celebrates Harris as a leading modernist painter, an innovator on par with contemporaries Marsden Hartley, Edward Hopper, and Georgia O'Keeffe. At the core of this exhibition are more than 30 of Harris's most significant northern landscapes from the 1920s and 1930s, drawn from major public and private collections across Canada.

The Idea of North: The Paintings of Lawren Harris opens at the Art Gallery of Ontario on Friday, July 1, 2016, and is curated by Steve Martin in collaboration with Cynthia Burlingham, Deputy Director, Curatorial Affairs at the Hammer Museum, Los Angeles and Andrew Hunter, Fredrik S.
