Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art has appointed Winnipeg photographer Sheila Spence as its director, administration and development.
Spence, who holds a master of arts in leadership from Victoria's Royal Roads University, starts her new position Monday. Prior to joining the Canadian Museum for Human Rights in 2012, Spence was executive director of Martha Street Studio.
"Sheila Spence has a long history with Plug In, both as a photographer and a member of the artist's collective Average Good Looks," stated Plug In board president Noam Gonick in a press release. "Her great strides behind the scenes at the WAG, as director of Martha Street Studio and in the exhibitions tier of the Canadian Museum for Human Rights make Spence a natural fit for taking our Institute of Contemporary Art into the future."
