The laureates were chosen by a panel of art experts, including Nigel Price, Executive Director of Contemporary Art Gallery in Vancouver; Michelle Jacques, Chief Curator at Arts Gallery of Greater Victoria, and Wanda Nanibush, Curator at Art Gallery of Onatrio. The Hnatyshyn Foundation would like to thank the jurors for their generous assistance.
"Congratulations to this year's recipients of the TD Bank Group Awards for emerging artists and curators," says Stuart Keeler, Senior Art Curator, TD. "We are committed to working with groups like the Hnatyshyn Foundation to help amplify all voices in the arts. The jury, composed of art professionals from coast to coast, were united in the vision of building an inclusive future. In doing so, we hope we can help people feel more connected by seeing themselves reflected in arts and culture.”
