The 2018 Philip B. Lind Emerging Artist Prize at The Polygon Gallery
Winner announced!

On Thursday, September 20 at 7pm the winner of the Philip B. Lind Emerging Artist Prize was announced at an Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony at The Polygon Gallery. We are delighted to recognize Christopher Lacroix from the University of British Columbia with his winning 2-panel HD video and digital vinyl print: Sometimes It’s Hard to Tell Where It’s Coming From, 2017. Christopher has received a $5,000 prize towards producing a brand new project, which will be featured at an exhibition at The Polygon Gallery in 2019. An honorable mention has additionally been awarded to the runners-up, Matthew Wong from Emily Carr University of Art + Design, and Ramey Newell from the University of British Columbia.

Established in 2016, the Philip B. Lind Emerging Artist Prize is awarded annually to an artist currently enrolled in a BFA or MFA program in British Columbia, working in mediums of film, photography, or video. This year, visual arts instructors from post-secondary institutions across the province nominated over thirty candidates. A jury consisting of Henry Art Gallery associate curator Nina Bozicnik, Audain Gallery curator Amy Kazymerchyk, and Vancouver artist Ian Wallace chose nine finalists from an outstanding selection of portfolios.
