The 2016 Stapleford Lecture
'Ronald Bloor and the Art of Provocation', presented by Timothy Long (Director, Mackenzie Art Gallery)
Thursday 31 March, 7:00 pm
The University of Regina main campus, Research and Innovation Centre - RI 119

As Director of the Mackenzie Art Gallery from 1958 to 1966, Ronald Bloore stirred controversy at every turn. Whether inventing a fictional artist, including his own work in shows he curated, or declaring art of the Renaissance to be 'decadent', Bloore upset expectations and sparked debate. In the process he put Regina's fledgling art scene on the map nationally and internationally, articulating a defiantly indigenous vision of modern art.

All are welcome to this free event. Free parking will be available on campus in Lot 10. Additional pay parking available across campus at kiosk and meters.
