Welcome, R. Stuart Keeler

We’re thrilled to announce the appointment of curator/sculptor/artist R. Stuart Keeler as the new Curator/Director of Programmes at the Art Gallery of Mississauga!

AGM Executive Director/Curator Robert Freeman on Stuart Keeler:

“Stuart has tremendous energy and a wealth of ideas he is eager to implement in his new capacity as Curator/ Programme Director for the Art Gallery of Mississauga. He has extensive knowledge and experience in the arts and has a proven record of working closely with arts communities, and realizing ambitious projects. I believe he will be a great addition to our staff team and a welcome catalyst to increasing the AGM’s profile in the Mississauga arts community and beyond.”

R. Stuart Keeler is an artist who organizes exhibitions and multi-platform projects with the collaborative role of “curator” as the conceptual identity of his practice.

Keeler is based in Toronto, and holds an MFA from The School at The Art Institute of Chicago.

He is a regular contributor to Sculpture Magazine, Public Art Review, ArtPapers, Arcade, and Drain Magazine. This fall, Green Lantern Press (Chicago) will launch Service Media, an anthology edited by Keeler featuring 17 essays by leading cultural practitioners that question community and socially based art practices globally.

Stuart’s thoughts on working at the AGM:

“I am eager to become a member of the regional art community and expand the programming and recognition that AGM has already built upon. This is an exciting time to be participating in the history of Mississauga as the city evolves into a truly urban centre with an inspiring culturally diverse population. I look forward to listening, learning and in making important contributions to the field, as well as create innovative opportunities for learning and discovery.”
