The Winnipeg Art Gallery’s chief curator is leaving her position, but isn’t going too far.
Helen Delacretaz will depart the WAG on September 5 to serve as manager of exhibitions at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights.
Delacretaz has spent the past 16 years at the WAG, starting out as an intern in the curatorial department.
“Helen has contributed much over her years at the Gallery and she will be missed,” said director and CEO Dr. Stephen Borys, “And it is fitting that one of her final WAG exhibitions, Seeing Rights and Liberties, celebrates the opening of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights (CMHR). We have an excellent relationship with the CMHR, and this is just one more link that will greatly help with future collaborations between our two institutions.”
The museum opens on September 20.
