Five curators have lost their jobs at the National Museum of Canada. This is 20% of its curatorial positions. A structural deficit of $400,000 was sited at the reason. The cuts come after last year’s elimination of art education programs for seniors, children, and teens which resulted in the loss of 27 jobs.
The curators let go include Graham Larkin, the curator of European art, and Denise Leclerc, the curator of modern Canadian art as well as the assistant curator for prints and drawings, the assistant curator of contemporary art, and a curatorial assistant in Canadian art.
