Visiting Curator Program

Launching Summer 2021, the Visiting Curator Program will serve as a catalyst for three international-caliber exhibitions and will play a vital role in defining contemporary art and its attendant discourses in the Prairies. It will also give students, faculty, and other community members meaningful opportunities to engage with curators charting new trajectories in the field. Through its mentorship component, it will foster strong new voices in this field.

This new program is generously supported by Dr. Michael F.B. Nesbitt, whose contributions to the arts and community-building are deeply felt throughout Winnipeg, and especially at the University of Manitoba.

Internationally-recognized curator and art historian, Grace Deveney, is the 2021 inaugural visiting curator in the School of Art Gallery's Visiting Curator Program.

Meet the Emerging Curators

Chosen from a wide-open call, the two emerging curators will be mentored by established Visiting Curator Grace Deveney as all three research and present exhibitions, events and publications over the next three years.
