Christopher Régimbal is a senior exhibitions manager at the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa. After completing his master’s in art history at Concordia University in Montreal, he spent eight years at the Justina M. Barnicke Gallery and the Art Museum at the University of Toronto as curatorial assistant, and then as the exhibition and projects coordinator. He has coordinated more than thirty exhibitions of modern and contemporary art in museums and galleries across Canada and Europe, including Gauguin: Portraits (National Gallery of Canada, 2019), and Traffic: Conceptual Art in Canada, c. 1965–1980 (Justina M.

In addition to his work as an art administrator, Régimbal has published essays and curated exhibitions on postwar and contemporary art. His writing has examined abstract painter Eleanor Mackey, the collective General Idea, and celebrated Minimalist pioneer Sol LeWitt. In 2011 he curated a solo exhibition on the American artist Bruce Nauman. His essay “Institutions of Regionalism: Artist Collectivism in London, Ontario,” published in Fillip in 2014, examined one of the earliest manifestations of artist-run galleries in Canada and its lasting effect on the Canadian art scene.
