Recent curatorial projects include a trilogy of exhibitions that set the resource industries that built the small coastal town of Nanaimo in international dialogue through contemporary art. Birch has published in numerous exhibition catalogues and art journals, including C Magazine, Yishu, and fillip. He holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Fine Arts (Photography) from Emily Carr University (2001), a Masters of Arts degree in Art History (Critical and Curatorial Studies) from the University of British Columbia (2008) and is an alumnus of the Curatorial Programme at de Appel Arts Centre in Amsterdam (2008).
The SAAG is proud to be a partner of the University of Lethbridge’s Art NOW lecture series. Encompassing presentations by artists, curators, art historians, filmmakers, and gallerists, Art NOW is one of the largest and longest running programs in the country, having hosted more than 700 presenters over more than four decades.
Supported by the Canada Council, the course offers presentations by artists, art historians, curators, theorists and critics. Up to three different speakers per week, representing a wide range of contemporary practices, discuss their art, ideas, working methods, and issues in the visual arts. With about 30 speakers per semester, Art NOW is an amazing resource for anyone interested in contemporary art. Best of all, the lectures are open to the public - everyone is welcome!
The SAAG contributes to the diverse spectrum of presenters by recommending our roster of contemporary practicing artists as guests.
