Sobey Art Award 2021 Shortlist

Portrait of Laakkuluk as artist

Laakkuluk Williamson Bathory has been shortlisted today for the 2021 Sobey Arts Award.

I never imagined I would be recognized like this. My work is populated with my family, culture, language, collaborators and all my ancestors, so it is not just me on this shortlist: it is all of us. I make art because creative expression is essential to decolonization and in this context, genre is fluid.
