Scotiabank New Generation Photography Award [Arsenal Contemporary Art]
Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival
The 2023 Scotiabank New Generation Photography Award (NGPA) artists explore the many challenges in contemporary representations of the body, identity, culture and history. Photographs and videos push the boundaries between cultural and natural delineations to imagine new possibilities of existence and relationships. As much as their images operate as critical statements on contemporary life, they also function to open dialogue and create community.
With great visual sophistication, care and curiosity, NGPA winners Hannah Doucet, Wynne Neilly and Gonzalo Reyes Rodriguez demonstrate the continued power and significance of lens-based images to probe shared concerns and anxieties as they offer new insights into negotiating an image-saturated culture.
A selection of the artists’ work will be on view at the National Gallery of Canada from August 4, 2023 to January 7, 2024.
Supported by the Scotiabank Photography Program at the National Gallery of Canada.
