Curator Tour of The Multiple Lives of Paintings with Timothy Long


About the Curator

Timothy Long studied art history at the University of Regina (BA Hons 1986) and the State University of New York at Stony Brook (MA 1990). He has over thirty years of curatorial experience at the MacKenzie Art Gallery where he is Head Curator and Adjunct Professor at the University of Regina. Writing regional art histories and assessing their impacts has driven several of his collaborative investigations, including: Regina Clay: Worlds in the Making (2005), Superscreen: The Making of an Artist-Run Counterculture and the Grand Western Canadian Screen Shop (2019, with Alex King), and nationally touring retrospectives of David Thauberger (2014, with Sandra Fraser) and Victor Cicansky (2019, with Julia Krueger). Other projects, including Atom Egoyan: Steenbeckett (2016, with Christine Ramsay and Elizabeth Matheson) and the MAGDANCE series of exhibition/dance residencies with New Dance Horizons, are the result of his interest in interdisciplinary dialogues between art, sound, ceramics, film, and contemporary dance. His application of the cultural anthropology of René Girard has resulted in a number MacKenzie publications, including: The Limits of Life: Arnulf Rainer and Georges Rouault (2004), Theatroclasm: Mirrors, Mimesis and the Place of the Viewer (2009), and Masculin/Féminin: Ian Wallace and Jean-Luc Godard (2011).
