The laureates were chosen by a panel of art experts, including :
Joséphine Mills– Director / Curator, University of Lethbridge Art Gallery
Louise Déry– Director, Galerie de l'UQAM (2007 recipient of The Hnatyshyn Foundation’s Award for Curatorial Excellence in Contemporary Art)
Melanie O'Brian– Director / Curator, Simon Fraser University Gallery

“It was an honour to be invited to help select the Mid-Career Prizes for 2019 award recipients. The incredible depth and strength of curators and artists in Canada made this a difficult decision, but we are delighted with the results and congratulate both nominees.”
The Hnatyshyn Foundation would like to thank the adjudicators for their generous assistance.
