Celebrating Curnoe

Read the new online art book on Greg Curnoe by Judith Rodger

Born and raised in London, Ontario, Greg Curnoe (1936–1992) had a strong interest in his community and helped to spearhead London Regionalism. Primarily known as a painter, Curnoe extended his work to sculpture, video, and photography. His brightly coloured compositions and text-based elements celebrate both Canada and his anti-establishment views. Despite his untimely death, Curnoe changed the face of Canadian art by bringing regional artists into political discourse.
