BeCause & Effect #19: Stephen Borys

Stephen Borys is one of the leading and most educated voices in art and art history in the country. He holds a PhD in Art and Architectural History from McGill, a MA in Art History from the University of Toronto, on top of being the curator or curatorial assistant at many acclaimed museums and galleries across North America.

In his current role as the Director and CEO of the Winnipeg Art Gallery (WAG) he’s been tasked with building Canada’s first Inuit Art Centre, slated to open in 2020.

I sat down with Stephen to talk about storytelling through art, educating our youth in the language of artistry, and the importance of giving a platform to Indigenous artists to showcase their beautiful works.
