Curatorial Fellowship

We are proud to announce the Curatorial Fellowship Program made possible by the generous support of TD Bank Group through the TD Ready Commitment. The program was conceived of as an experimental and collaborative process through which emerging curators can cultivate personal curatorial methodologies, and realize a substantial curatorial project within the framework of the Toronto Biennial of Art.  The inaugural fellows are Sebastian De Line (Haudenosaunee-Métis-Cantonese/Canada) and Chiedza Pasipanodya (Zimbabwe/Canada). Through a reciprocal mentorship model, the fellows will engage and collaborate with artists, Biennial staff, and fellow culture workers, as well as connect with local, national and international audiences. 

Through the TD Ready Commitment, our global corporate citizenship platform, we are proud to support the Curatorial Fellowship Program as part of the 2021 Biennial program. We strive to help create opportunities for under-represented individuals to navigate and develop their careers in the artistic sector as well as advance the amplification of diverse voices in arts and culture. This program will allow for collaboration, storytelling, and meaningful connections through art, igniting new conversations and learning for the artists themselves, the curators, and all audiences.” Said Stuart Keeler, Senior Curator, TD Corporate Art Collection, TD Bank Group.
