Anthony Kiendl

Anthony Kiendl is a Canadian curator of Contemporary Art. His curatorial practice has theorized weakness, pathos, failure - and related sentiments such as nostalgia - as responses to modernism. This strategy has been manifested in diverse forms including exhibitions such as Little Worlds (1998), an exploration of diminutive environments by artists; Space Camp 2000: Uncertainty, Speculative Fictions and Art (2000), a inter-disciplinary cocktail of speculative fictions and alterity; and Godzilla vs. Skateboarders: Skateboarding as a Critique of Social Spaces (2001) all at Dunlop Art Gallery, Regina. Kiendl 's writing has been included in multiple publications such as Parachute, FUSE, Flash Art, and numerous catalogue essays. In 2007 he was Leverhulme Visiting Research Fellow at the School of Arts, Middlesex University, London; and in 2009 while Director of Plug In Institute of Contemporary Art, Winnipeg, he was awarded the Hnatyshyn Foundation Award for Curatorial Excellence in Contemporary Art.
