Gareth Long

Gareth Long (b. 1979, Canada) lives and works in London and Vienna. Long’s work centres on processes of transference, translation and collaboration as a means to question authorship and the mechanisms of cultural and knowledge production. In much of his previous work, he has explored the cross-translation of artistic forms, non-linear narrative tropes and gestures de-stabilizing medium specificity. Frequently, these explorations lead to a revised understanding of Modernism as it relates to artistic and literary traditions and the history of design, particularly book publishing. Long has held solo exhibitions at Kate Werble Gallery, New York City (2012); Michael Benevento, Los Angeles (2012); Torri, Paris (2011 and 2012); The Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Lethbridge (2011-2012); Oakville Galleries, Oakville (2008-2009); and Leo Kamen Gallery, Toronto (2005 and 2006). His work has been shown at various institutions including Witte de With, Rotterdam (2012); Wiels, Brussels (2011); Casey Kaplan Gallery (2011), MoMA PS1 (2009 and 2010), and Artists Space (2008 and 2009), New York City; Flat Time House, London (2010); Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe (2009); Mercer Union Centre for Contemporary Art, Toronto (2009); and Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal, Montreal (2005). He holds an honours BA in Visual Studies and Classical Civilizations (2003) from the University of Toronto and a MFA in Sculpture (2007) from Yale University.
