curnoe

Greg Curnoe was born in London on November 19, 1936. From 1954-1956, Curnoe attended H. B. Beal Technical and Commercial High School in London and later studied art at Kitchener’s Doon School of Fine Arts (1956) and the Ontario College of Art in Toronto (1957-1960).

Upon returning to London in 1960, Curnoe became a highly motivated artist-community organizer. He co-organized the first art “happening” (1962), co-founded Region Magazine (1961-90), Region Gallery (1962-63) and the Forest City Gallery (1973- ). He also played a key role in the founding of the Nihilist Spasm Band (1965), a collection of artists that created “music” on homemade instruments. In 1968, along with Jack Chambers, Tony Urquhart and Kim Ondaatje, Curnoe became one of the first members of CARFAC, an artist collective that advocates for artists’ rights.

Beginning in the early 1960s, Curnoe exhibited extensively both nationally and internationally. In 1967, Curnoe received a prestigious mural commission for the Dorval International Airport in Montreal. He represented Canada at the Sao Paulo Bienal (1969) and at the Venice Biennale (1976).

Curnoe’s artwork has been included in major exhibitions including “Heart of London” (1968) National Gallery of Canada, “Greg Curnoe: Retrospective” (1981) Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal and “Greg Curnoe: Life & Stuff” (2001) Art Gallery of Ontario. His artwork is included in the collections of the Art Gallery of Ontario, Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, National Gallery of Canada, Oakville Galleries, Vancouver Art Gallery and in many other prominent public and private collections.

On November 14, 1992, Greg Curnoe was struck from behind while riding his bright yellow Mariposa bicycle with the London Centennial Wheelers. He was pronounced dead later that day at Strathroy Middlesex General Hospital. He is survived by his wife Sheila, children Owen, Galen and Zoe, brother Glen and sister Lynda.

Greg Curnoe ’61-65 Walk-through

Michael Gibson Gallery video of our January – February 2014 exhibition “Greg Curnoe ’61-65”.

In the video you will experience the feeling of walking through the exhibition.


Greg Curnoe’s “Connexions”

Connexions (1970) – filmed in 16mm, colour, sound, 15 minutes

In “Connexions” Greg Curnoe describes all of the intricate connections in his life over moving images of London’s downtown, neighbourhoods and bars. You also see studio images of Jack Chambers painting his famous “401” painting. Connexions becomes a diary – narrative – biographical – autobiographical home movie of regionalism – provincialism.


Greg Curnoe’s “No Movie”

Greg Curnoe’s “No Movie” (1965) was originally filmed in 16mm using a 1938 Cine Kodak Magazine Load Camera. It was his first movie. The original music soundtrack was recorded by members of the Nihilist Spasm Band, but this sound recording has since been lost.

The 8 minute, (now) silent, colour movie records the history of the Nihilist Party in London, ON.
