  • Designing the new Canadian and Indigenous Galleries Wednesday, November 8, 2017 10:30 am – 12 pm In June 2017, the National Gallery of Canada opened its re-installed and re-named Canadian and Indigenous Galleries to widespread acclaim. The galleries are transformed not only by a renewed selection of works but also by notable changes to the architecture and design of the spaces and displays. This talk by Junia Jorgii, Chief of Design Services at the National Gallery of Canada, will tell the story of the galleries’ transformation. Junia Jorgji is the Chief of Design Services at the National Gallery of Canada. She holds a Masters of Architecture from McGill University in Montreal. She started her career as an educator and then as an exhibition designer at the Canadian Centre for Architecture in Montreal, and has practiced as both an architecture and lighting designer in Montreal, Paris and New York. Prior to joining the National Gallery of Canada to lead the Design department, Junia worked as an exhibition designer, across all collections and departments, at the Art Institute of Chicago.
