Call for Submissions: 2022 Middlebrook Prize for Young Canadian Curators
Founded in 2012, the Middlebrook Prize for Young Canadian Curators is awarded annually to an emerging Canadian curator under 30 with the aim to foster social innovation and curatorial excellence in Canada. Hosted and administered by the Art Gallery of Guelph, the winner is selected by a jury of arts leaders and receives a $5,000 honorarium as well as mentorship in the development of an exhibition at the Art Gallery of Guelph.
Submissions will be accepted until Monday, January 24, 2022, at 5 pm. The exhibition will be presented as part of the Art Gallery of Guelph’s fall 2022 season. By supporting and mobilizing Canadian creative talent, the Middlebrook Prize aims to inspire positive social change through creativity in an era of ongoing and unprecedented economic, environmental, social, and cultural upheaval. Proposals should emphasize contemporary Canadian art with attention to audience, community, and social relevance.
We welcome and encourage submissions from applicants who are BIPOC, LGBTQ2S, women, and persons with disabilities.
