Put together by Canada's national library, Library and Archives Canada (LAC), 'Double Take' features 59 contemporary and historical Canadian personalities.

The exhibition of more than 100 paintings, photographs and drawings, also includes artifacts and was curated by LAC's Portrait Program Curator Madeleine Trudeau.

The exhibition is now on show at the Canadian Museum of Civilization after two previous showings in Canada. It continues until October 14, 2013.

RCI's Wojtek Gwiazda spoke to Madeleine Trudeau about the goals of the exhibition and the challenge of choosing which Canadian personalities to feature.
