Born and raised among the art and artists of 17 Morrow, Taiga joined the Olga Korper Gallery staff in 2011 with a degree from Carleton University in art history and curatorial studies. As the third generation to enter the business, Taiga was trained to understand and cultivate the ethos of OKG. Taiga curates the exhibitions and art fairs, writes the essays for gallery press and catalogues, manages the gallery website and social media, and gives regular tours and talks inside the gallery and out. Taiga spoke at the AGO for ALAS “Art, Business and the Law: A Roundtable Discussion for Visual Artists”; juried the Toronto Outdoor Art Fair 2017 and The Artist Project 2019; and guest-curated Propeller Gallery's, "Live Longer, Piss Off Your Heirs". She is on the committees for Art/TO Opening Night and MOCA Gala 2019, and has recently joined the board of the ADAC.
