Congratulations to internationally acclaimed artist Stan Douglas on being selected to represent Canada at La Biennale di Venezia 2021!
The exhibitions on view at the Canada Pavilion are commissioned by the National Gallery of Canada and are produced in partnership with the Canada Council for the Arts. The Canadian representation at the Venice Biennale is made possible through the Canadian Artists in Venice Endowment and with the generous financial support of Presenting Sponsor Royal Bank of Canada (RBC).
Special thanks to the Michael & Sonja Koerner Family, the Donald R. Sobey Family, and The Jack Weinbaum Family Foundation for their exceptional contributions to the Canadian Artists in Venice Endowment, and to Reesa Greenberg, whose generous financial support funded the restoration of the Canada Pavilion.
