Fillip: Artist Collectivism in London, Ontario


Christopher Régimbal on Institutions by Artists
December 2–4, 2014

Fillip is pleased to present a series of discussions on artist-run culture in Ontario, Canada in conjunction with the release of Fillip 19 last spring.

Join curator and art historian Christopher Régimbal over two nights in London and Toronto for an in-depth discussion of the cultural legacy of London, Ontario—which Régimbal positions as the epicenter of the artist-run movement. In particular, he will discuss the social, cultural, and political forces behind London’s Regionalist movement, spearheaded in the 1960s by artists including Greg Curnoe and Jack Chambers and culminating in the creation of key spaces like Region Gallery and 20/20 Gallery and ultimately the birth of CARFAC in 1968.
