    Gerard Curtis's Biography Page
    Areas of Interests:
    Dr. Gerard Curtis is Professor of Visual Culture and Art History in the Department of Visual Arts at Grenfell Campus, Memorial University. After initially training as a studio artist he completed his doctorate in Art History and Theory at the University of Essex (England) in 1995. He has published and presented on 19th and 20th century art, literary culture, architecture and heritage issues, the postmodern sublime, censorship and art, along with research work on drawing history, while also continuing a practice as a studio artist and has been a KIAC artist in residence in Dawson City.  His current academic interests include environmental issues and contemporary maritime art, while his studio-art interests are in both traditional and inter-media/time-based work, including film and sound works, and a long-term project called the Fragmentary Museum. Gerard is deeply involved with both union, social, and environmental activism, for which he has done a number of outreach workshops - and his community-based and arts-based research and artworks  often examine issues of a socio/political nature.  He is the author of Visual Words: Art and the Material Book in Victorian England (Ashgate), and a series of articles and book reviews -- and he has given a large number of public lectures on the importance of visual culture, understanding contemporary art, architectural issues, along with workshops on alternative pedagogical practices including transformational, cooperative, and alternative teaching/mentoring approaches (on which he has presented papers at a number of international conferences).  He has developed a highly-successful three month overseas visual-culture programme that is offered every second year in England (at Memorial's Harlow Campus), utilizing a hybrid of art history, historical and architectural studies, visual and material culture, and studio components.  In 2009 he was awarded Memorial University President's Award for Distinguished Teaching for this work.

    Pierre N. LeBlanc's Biography Page
    Areas of Interests:
    On October 28th, 1963 Gédéon Thibodeau was born.  On December 24th of the same year, he was adopted and became Pierre Noël LeBlanc.  At the age of thirteen he received his first 35mm camera, but he still had his sights set on becoming a scientist.  In 1984 a particularly astute invertebrate biology professor told him that he had nothing resembling a scientific thought process, not even a bit.  In 1984, Pierre becomes a student at the Visual Arts Department of the Université de Moncton (1984-88); he then continued to follow his research and passions at the MFA programme at Montréal's Concordia University (1989-92).

    Since 1992, Pierre N. LeBlanc has taught photography, printmaking and digital imaging first at Concordia University, then at the Université de Moncton and today at Grenfell Campus, the west coast campus of Memorial University of Newfoundland.

    In 1991, the Commission GEDEON Commission was born.  The C.G.C. is the agent provocateur of Mr. LeBlanc's cultural enterprises.  It offers a philosophical space that allows for the incorporation of the ideas and the identities of the artist and his processes.  The C.G.C. encompasses the young artist's influences, his inspirations coming mostly from literary, cinematographic and televisual spaces.  The C.G.C. seeks to eliminate the cult of the personality, the ivory tower and the notion of the absolute originality of the creator of visual culture.

    The Commission GEDEON Commission has exhibited work in Acadie, Québec, Ontario, France and the United States.

Currently, she is Vice-Chair of the Board of Visual Artists Newfoundland and Labrador (VANL-CARFAC) and the Newfoundland and Labrador representative on the Board of Canadian Artists' Representation/Le Front des artistes canadiens (CARFAC) National.
