About Diana Nemiroff:
Before joining Carleton, Nemiroff was a senior curator at the National Gallery of Canada. Appointed as director of CUAG in 2005, she put the gallery on a stable financial footing, found more public funding to allow its curator to travel and do more writing, and has managed the process of digitizing the entire collection of 27,000 items.

Nemiroff won a lifetime achievement award from the Ontario Association of Art Galleries in 2011 and was inducted into the Royal Society of Canada. In recognition of an exceptional career dedicated to the tireless promotion of Canadian visual arts, Nemiroff has been recognized by the Canada Council for the Arts with the 2012 Governor General Award in Visual and Media Arts for Outstanding Contribution. She has made an enduring impact on the art landscape and curatorial practice in the country.
