Concordia professor Françoise Sullivan (Studio Arts) was appointed as Officer of the Order of Canada in November 2009.
Françoise Sullivan is considered a leading figure in contemporary art in Canada. This multidisciplinary artist has been creating works for over 60 years her work has been shown in many exhibitions and retrospectives at various galleries, including the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts.
Some of the choreographies she created nearly 60 years ago are still being performed overseas, and she continues to teach in the Department of Fine Arts at Concordia University, where she is a source of inspiration and an incredible mentor. Her work has garnered her various awards and honours, including the Governor General's Award in Visual and Media Arts and the Gershon Iskowitz Prize.
This is a promotion within the Order.
AA Bronson, who recently received an honorary doctorate from Concordia, was also appointed as Officer of the Order of Canada, and Stephen Jarislowsky, who created the Gail and Stephen A. Jarislowsky Institute for Studies in Canadian Art was elevated to the rank of Companion.
The Order of Canada was established in 1967 to recognize outstanding achievement and service in various fields of human endeavour. It is our country's highest civilian honour for lifetime achievement.
