OCAD University congratulates IAIN BAXTER& and Kent Monkman on being chosen as this year’s finalists for the Premier’s Awards for Excellence in the Arts. BAXTER& and Monkman are among 18 finalists selected for the Premier’s Awards.  Administered by the Ontario Arts Council, the awards recognize the extraordinary achievements of the province's artists and arts organizations and the program. Both BAXTER& and Monkman are recipients of honorary doctorates from OCAD University.

BAXTER& is one of the most prolific artists in Canada, as well as a great teacher and thinker of art whose multifaceted creative work has shaped the landscape of Canadian contemporary art, greatly influencing our understanding of the art market and the education of artists.

Monkman is well-known for his provocative reinterpretations of romantic North American landscapes. Themes of colonization, sexuality, loss, and resilience - the complexities of historic and contemporary Native American experience - are explored in a variety of mediums, including painting, film/video, performance, and installation.

The 2017 laureates will be announced at an award ceremony at Canada's National Ballet School on October 30 in Toronto.
