Widely recognized as the pre-eminent prize for Canadian artists 40 and under, the Sobey Art Award continues to capture national and international attention. Presented annually, the award celebrates some of our country’s most exciting young artists — most of whom go on to artistic careers of considerable renown — while also providing significant financial recognition. On view for the first time at the National Gallery of Canada, the Sobey Art Award exhibition will feature works by the five artists shortlisted for the 2016 honour. Sure to fascinate, challenge and inspire, this group exhibition is an opportunity to experience the newest in Canadian contemporary art.
Organized by the National Gallery of Canada and the Sobey Art Foundation.
