“Western Front is an iconic artist-run centre. Its program across artistic disciplines and formats embodies artistic experimentation, generosity and exchange. I am honoured to be entrusted with leading Western Front into the next chapter of its illustrious history, and look forward to collaborating with its exceptional Board and team to foster this vital meeting point for art in Vancouver and internationally.”
