      Vancouver's Contemporary Art Gallery has named Matthew Hyland as its new executive director, after an extensive global search.

      Hyland is director-curator at Oakville Galleries in Ontario, where he's served for a decade. Amid growth, that facility is working toward relocating to a 30,000-square-foot heritage building in central Oakville. 

      Hyland will officially start his new role on March 16, 2020, steering the organization toward its 50th anniversary in 2021.

      He succeeds former executive director Nigel Prince, who left last year to head up Artes Mundi in the U.K. after nine years at the CAG.
