is pleased to present Dr. Alma Mikulinsky on Sorel Etrog. Mikulinsky is an art historian and curator whose work experience spans four continents. Among her projects were managing the world’s second largest collection of Pablo Picasso’s Ceramics, curating a block-buster exhibition in Hong Kong as well as shows of contemporary art in Toronto and Santiago de Chile. Her writing was commissioned by prestigious institutions such as Musée National Picasso-Paris and the Tate Modern in London. She is currently working on an ACI book on Sorel Etrog to be published in the fall of 2019.

Born in Romania, Sorel Etrog immigrated to Canada in 1963 and quickly established himself as one of North America’s pre-eminent sculptors. His career spanned over 50 years and involved collaborations with Samuel Beckett, Eugène Ionesco, John Cage and Marshall McLuhan. Etrog represented Canada at the 1966 Venice Biennale and received many important commissions including Montreal Expo ‘67, Sunlife Centre Toronto, and Olympic Park, Seoul, Korea. In 1968, he designed the Canadian Film Award more commonly known as the Genie. He was appointed Member of the Order of Canada in 1994 and was made a Chevalier of Arts and Letters by the Government of France in 1996. Etrog’s work resides in a number of permanent collections including the Tate Museum in London, the Museum of Modern Art and the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York, the Kunstmuseum in Basel, Musée National d’Art Moderne in Paris, The Tel-Aviv Museum, The Art Gallery of Ontario and the National Gallery of Canada.
