Concordia Bronfman Fellows Exhibit New Artwork at a Group Booth at the Papier Contemporary Art Fair
For the first time, scholars of the Claudine and Stephen Bronfman scholarship in contemporary art will present works together at the Paper Contemporary Art Fair.
Concordia scholarship holders Mara Eagle and Nico Williams will exhibit alongside their peers from the University of Quebec in Montreal (UQAM), Heidi Barkun and Leila Zelli. A booth showcasing their works will be part of the 14th edition of the annual art fair, which will be held at the Grand Quai of the Port of Montreal from November 26 to 28.
âSince the renewal of the scholarship program in 2020, our intention is to partner with Papier to provide greater visibility to new Bronfman scholars. Last year, because of the pandemic, we couldn’t do that, âexplains Annie GÃ©rin, Dean of the Faculty of Fine Arts at Concordia.
âThis year, we’re doubling down, showing the work of the 2020 and 2021 scholarship recipients. Papier is the largest commercial art fair in Quebec, so it’s a wonderful opportunity to present their most recent works to collectors and art lovers. from Montreal.”
The Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Contemporary Art Fellowship is one of the most generous grants in Canada for emerging artists. Since 2010, the awards have supported 24 exceptional graduates of UQAM’s Faculty of Arts and Concordia’s Faculty of Fine Arts.
