Meet the 2024 Jury

Antoine Ertaskiran, Owner and Director, Bradley Ertaskiran

BRADLEY ERTASKIRAN is a contemporary art gallery that occupies two unique spaces within a restored industrial building in Montreal, Canada. The gallery’s main floor space is a white-walled large expanse, the subterranean bunker space is a concrete windowless box that continues above ground with 25 foot-ceilings.

The gallery focuses on developing the careers of Canadian and international artists through exceptional exhibition programming, and strong institutional relations. The gallery actively assures critical visibility for its artists and provides an important in-house program of invited international artists. Bradley Ertaskiran was born of the merger between two Montreal based gallerists in January 2020. Megan Bradley, formerly director of Parisian Laundry and Antoine Ertaskiran, founder and director of Galerie Antoine Ertaskiran, joined forces to combine the strengths of their respective programs, creating one of the most influential galleries in Canada. The gallery represents important emerging and mid-career artists and upholds a program that is committed to the dissemination of contemporary art practices that provide visitors with a rigorous perspective.

Clara Puton, Associate Director, Pangée

Run with love and enthusiasm, Pangée (Montréal, QC) embraces a playful and critical curatorial approach that promotes dialogue between practices. Pangée represents eight Canadian artists -- Trevor Baird; Russell Banx; Nicholas Bierk; Jane Corrigan; Mara Eagle; Delphine Hennelly; Élise Lafontaine; Claire Milbrath; and Darby Milbrath -- and interweaves international collaborations throughout its programming with emerging and mid-career artists. Pangée embraces a vast range of media and brings together artists from various geographies, cultures, and identities, highlighting diverse approaches to art and materiality that are woven together with personal narratives while emphasizing women, non-binary, and queer perspectives. Pangée operates its gallery space and artist residency out of a historic building that overlooks Mont-Royal Park.

Dominique Toutant, Director, Blouin Division

Created in 2020 out of the merger of Galerie Division (founded in 2010) and Galerie René Blouin (founded in 1986), Blouin Division is a commercial based in Montreal and Toronto. With the mission of promoting the careers of critical Canadian contemporary artists and disseminating their work to an international audience, the gallery works with 46 artists and showcases their talent in its locations in Canada, as well as in New York City through its association with Arsenal Contemporary Art, in addition to participating in multiple international fairs every year.

Blouin Division has placed the work of its artists in some of the most important institutional and corporate collections in Canada, including those of the National Gallery of Canada, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, RBC Bank, TD Bank, Hydro-Québec, and the Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec.

François Arès, Owner, Galerie Robertson Arès

Galerie Robertson Arès is a contemporary art gallery founded in 2019 with a focus on bold and innovative aesthetics. It represents over twenty emerging and established artists of international caliber, including many talents of Canadian origin.

The gallery occupies a completely renovated building located on rue Notre-Dame in the heart of the Petite Bourgogne district. The main exhibition space is a bright minimalist “white cube” space which hosts a diverse, vibrant and refined programming of individual and collective exhibitions. The lower floor features a secondary exhibition room reserved for more intimate presentations and experimental practices. In addition to participating in a selection of local and international fairs, Robertson Arès organizes an annual “pop-up” exhibition in Downtown Toronto.

Possessing over 15 years of experience in the Canadian and American art markets, gallery founders Emily Robertson and François Arès are actively involved in the Montreal and Canadian art scenes. Emily Robertson is Treasurer of the Association of Contemporary Art Galleries of Canada and President of the Société de développement du Boulevard St-Laurent. François Arès is part of the official Art Toronto Jury. Rachel Vincent-Clarke, director of the gallery since 2023, sits on the Editorial Committee of Magazine Ligne and is a member of the Honorary Committee of Les Impatients.
