ONTARIO ARTISTS WIN 2011 SOBEY ART AWARD
Daniel Young and Christian Giroux are the recipients of the 2011 Sobey Art Award, winning the $50,000 top prize at a ceremony at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in October. Given annually to artists 40 and under for outstanding Canadian contemporary art, the duo were chosen by a cross-Canada jury panel from a short-list which included Charles Stankievich (West Coast and Yukon), Sarah Anne Johnson (Prairies and North), Manon De Pauw (Quebec), and Zeke Moores (Atlantic). Working collaboratively since 2002, Young and Giroux have created works in sculpture, public art and film installation, exploring architecture and the built environment. The award is given every year by the Sobey Art Foundation and the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia.
