2021 Finalists

The 2021 Yukon Prize Finalists were selected by an independent jury of three arts professionals:  Gaëtane Verna, Director of The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery in Toronto, Ryan Doherty, Chief Curator of Contemporary Calgary, and Candice Hopkins, an internationally known independent curator and a citizen of Carcross/Tagish First Nation.

We are grateful for the time and care that they devoted to the selection process. Congratulations to the six Finalists and many thanks to all Yukon artists who applied for the 2021 Yukon Prize.
