Showcasing the artists of the 2022 Sobey Art Award shortlist, this year’s exhibition features presentations by Tyshan Wright (Atlantic), Stanley Février (Quebec), Azza El Siddique (Ontario), Divya Mehra (Prairies & North), and Krystle Silverfox (West Coast & Yukon). Rooted in lived experience, the work of this year’s finalists reflects their diverse backgrounds and unique ways of seeing, thinking and being in the world. Expanding what it means to be a “Canadian” artist working on Turtle Island, the multidisciplinary projects encompass a range of creative practices, from performance to activism, to installation, sculpture, photography and institutional critique.
The 2022 Sobey Art Award winner will be announced in November. A special complimentary publication on the five finalists will be available to all on-site visitors.
Organized by the National Gallery of Canada and the Sobey Art Foundation.
