Art Now! Speakers' Series Presents Art in the Public Sphere Winter 2018 

With Special Guest Andrew Hunter, Curator, Artist and Educator

Andrew Hunter was the former Frederik S. Eaton Curator of Canadian Art, at the Art Gallery of Ontario. He has previously held curatorial positions at the Vancouver Art Gallery, Art Gallery of Hamilton, Kamloops Art Gallery, and University of Waterloo (RENDER). Hunter was Adjunct Curator at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection and Charlottetown’s Confederation Centre Art Gallery. He has taught at OCAD University, the University of Waterloo (Faculty of Arts and School of Architecture) and lectured on curatorial practice internationally. As an artist and independent curator, Hunter has exhibited widely, including solo projects at the National Gallery of Canada; Dubrovnik Museum of Modern Art, Croatia; The Rooms Art Gallery, Newfoundland; and the Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff Centre. From 2009 – 2013, he collaborated with Lisa Hirmer on the creative research project DodoLab. Hunter is known for his innovative use of collections and for positioning art within a wider social, historical and cultural context. He has consistently blurred the boundaries of artist/curator/educator and has emphasized community engagement, narrative and character-based performance in his work. Hunter firmly believes that galleries and museums need to be more present and active in engaging critical, contemporary issues including the state of the environment and social justice.
