Introducing Sunny Kerr, Curator of Contemporary Art

27 August 2014

In June we welcomed Sunny Kerr, an artist, educator, writer and curator, to the Agnes. A master of inventive collaboration and of stretching models of public engagement, he describes his curatorial vision and approach to the presentation of contemporary art as “responsive, flexible and rhizomatic.” Kerr brings to his role degrees from Queen’s University, Nova Scotia College of Art and Design, and York University. A PhD candidate in Cultural Studies at Queen’s, he has taught at Ontario College of Art and Design University, the University of Toronto and Queen’s. While in Toronto, Kerr animated the U of T Art Centre as an education coordinator and curated artists’ projects with WayUpWayDown. Since arriving in Kingston in 2010, he helped found Corridor Culture, served on the Board of Modern Fuel Artist-run Centre, spearheaded the Princess Towers Notions Group and participated in the city’s hottest new collective, Agitated Plover Salon. In 2013, he curated the Agnes exhibition, Déjà déjà visité: Mike Bayne, Jocelyn Purdie, Maayke Schurer.
