SASKATOON.- Remai Modern announced the appointment of celebrated curator, artist, professor and author Gerald McMaster as adjunct curator at Remai Modern. McMaster has spent more than 30 years developing an international reputation as an expert on Indigenous contemporary art.

“Gerald McMaster has a wealth of experience working with modern and contemporary art, both in Canada and internationally,” said Gregory Burke, Executive Director and CEO of Remai Modern. “His expertise in Canadian and global Indigenous art practices, as indicated by his Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Visual Culture and Curatorial Practice, is a valuable resource for the museum. Our association with McMaster is important to the vision of Remai Modern.”

As adjunct curator, McMaster will share his knowledge and advice with Remai Modern’s program team and contribute to program development.

“Having grown up in Saskatchewan, contributing to Remai Modern is my way of thanking the people of this great province,” McMaster said.

Additionally, McMaster will form part of Remai Modern’s international advisory council. This small committee, more details of which are forthcoming, will support the program team and advise on program development.

McMaster previously worked with Remai Modern in April 2016 during the Museums 3.0 program, holding a lecture entitled Indigenous Views of the Other.

McMaster (born 1953) was born and raised on the Red Pheasant First Nation in Saskatchewan and is a member of the Siksika Nation in Alberta. He is a professor at the Ontario College of Art and Design University in Toronto, specializing in curatorial studies, Indigenous visual history and aesthetics, and contemporary Indigenous art.

Throughout his career, McMaster has championed Indigenous art and artists in how and where they are represented. His work as a curator has helped shift a conversation long dominated by non-Indigenous scholars to the people who created the work. He continues to explore how Indigenous voices can contribute new perspectives to the art world.
