Congratulations to Erin Shirreff on being named the winner of the 2013 Aimia |AGO Photography Prize! It was announced on November 7 that Shirreff, whose work appeared in Ballroom’s 2010 exhibition Immaterial and is a former Chintati artist-in-residence, had been selected by public vote to receive the C$50,000 prize. In addition to the stipend, Shirreff will also participate in a two-month-long residency in Canada.

Matthew Teitelbaum, the Director and CEO of the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) discussed the prize, noting:

“There was an incredible amount of talent among this year’s shortlisted artists and we were thrilled to see the enormous response from the public, who voted by the thousands, in record numbers…. In partnership with Aimia, the prize is truly innovative in its accessibility and broad support of Canadian and international contemporary photography.”

Voting began online on August 27, as well as in person at the Aimia | AGO Photography Prize 2013 Exhibition. There visitors could see two of Shirreff’s “long-duration videos”: Lake and Moon, Both of which

“extend and explore the act of looking. Constructed from hundreds of individual photographs captured in her studio, these works collapse time and place as they fluctuate between natural and artificial effects, stillness and motion. Lake features an image of the Okanagan Valley, near Shirreff’s hometown of Kelowna, B.C.”

Once again congratulations, Erin!
