Kim Ondaatje
29 November 2014–5 April 2015
Historical Feature and R. Fraser Elliott Galleries
Curated by Melanie Townsend and Cassandra Getty and organized by Museum London.

As an artist, filmmaker, and cultural and environmental advocate, Kim Ondaatje made an indelible mark on the Canadian art world. This retrospective offers a focused survey of her major work from the 1960s and 1970s, not only as unique experiments in media and technique, but also as powerful statements about domesticity, large-scale industry and the environment. Ondaatje honed her craft within the fertile movement of London Regionalism. Her career, however, has deep roots in Kingston and the surrounding region.

This project is funded in part by the Government of Canada.
