The Governor General’s Awards in Visual and Media Arts 2014
28 Mar 2014 - 10 Aug 2014
Gallery B101 and B109
Since 2000, the Governor General’s Awards in Visual and Media Arts have added a prestigious yet very human dimension to the history of visual and media arts in Canada. Six prizes acknowledge artists for their remarkable career achievements in fine or applied arts, film, video, audio, or new media and have included the Saidye Bronfman Award for excellence in the fine crafts since 2007. A seventh prize honours an outstanding contributor to the visual and media arts through voluntary or professional activities. Created by the Governor General and the Canada Council for the Arts, which funds and administers the prizes, these awards offer all of us an occasion to celebrate artistic excellence in Canada.
The exhibition is organized by the National Gallery of Canada in collaboration with the Canada Council for the Arts and the Governor General of Canada.
