Dr. Sarah Stanners is an independent scholar and Adjunct Professor at the University of Toronto’s Department of Art History. She has lectured extensively on modern and contemporary art within an international context, and her career as a curator has specialized in celebrating the art of Canada. She began curating exhibitions in 2003, as Assistant Curator of the Hart House Permanent Collection, and by the end of her tenure as Chief Curator of the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, in 2018, she had curated forty exhibitions and collaborated in the publication of ten catalogues; notably Passion Over Reason: Tom Thomson & Joyce Wieland (2017), as well as two nationally touring Jack Bush solo exhibitions: the Jack Bush retrospective at the National Gallery of Canada, which she co-curated with Marc Mayer in 2014, and Jack Bush: In Studio, organized by Calgary’s Esker Foundation in 2016. For the past thirteen years, Dr. Stanners has served as the Director of the Jack Bush Catalogue Raisonné Project, culminating in the release of the four-volume publication in summer 2024, which now stands as the definitive record of Jack Bush’s painted oeuvre.
