The Prize was established to support emerging artists working with photography, film, and video, and reflects Presentation House Gallery’s long history of nurturing new talent among the province’s visual artists. Each year, post-secondary visual arts instructors are invited to nominate a student enrolled in a BFA or a MFA program in British Columbia. Shortlisted students have their work exhibited as part of the The Lind Prize exhibition. The winner is awarded $5000 toward the production of a new work to be displayed at the future Polygon Gallery, an opportunity designed to showcase artists early in their careers.
The exhibition includes eleven finalists, whose submissions highlight expansive approaches to working with camera images, both still and moving.
The Lind Prize exhibition takes place at Presentation House Gallery April 7 - 28, 2017.
Opening Reception | April 7, 7pm
Closing Reception + Prize Announcement | April 28, 7pm
This year’s jury comprises artist (+ ECU alumnus) Stan
Douglas and curators Grant Arnold (Vancouver Art Gallery) and Helga
Pakasaar (Presentation House Gallery).
The Philip B. Lind Emerging Artist Prize is made possible through a generous donation from Rogers Communications to honour Phil Lind’s commitment to the company and the communications industry over 40 years.
