An important part of our mandate is to support and mentor artistic talent in Canada, established and new.
- Each year, Canadian Art partners with an artist to create an installation in our booth. Past artists have included Patrick Cruz, Christian Kliegel and Gareth Long
- For an artist, the research stage of their practice can be challenging to fund, especially when it entails travel or other cost-prohibitive activities
- Launched in 2018, a $15,000 award is designed to benefit mid-career artists who are embarking on a phase of research
- The inaugural prize was awarded by an independent jury to Tanya Lukin Linklater, an artist based in northern Ontario
