    Gerard Curtis's Biography Page
    Areas of Interests:
    Dr. Gerard Curtis is Associate Professor of Art History in the Department of Visual Arts at Grenfell Campus, Memorial University of Newfoundland, and is cross-appointed to the Division of Arts (Historical Studies). After initially training as a studio artist he completed his doctorate in Art History and Theory at the University of Essex (England) in 1995. He has published a number of articles and book reviews on 19th and 20th century art, literary culture and maritime art. His current academic interests include: the cult of the author in the 19th- and 20th- centuries; maritime art; drawing history; art and the post-modern sublime; First Nations art; issues of style in art, archaeology, and art history; curricula and teaching methodologies at the university level; creative arts projects which conflate art history and visual arts practice; and the impact of censorship on art and pornography. His first book Visual Words: Art and the Material Book in Victorian England was published in April of 2002. His studio art interests are in traditional and inter-media/time-based work, including video, duratrans images, performance art and a long-term project called the Fragmentary Museum. His teaching interests are in transformational, cooperative, and alternative teaching/mentoring approaches (on which he has presented papers at a number of international conferences). He has also developed a highly successful nine-week overseas immersion study program in England and France, offered every second year at Grenfell for Visual Arts students, using a hybrid of art history, visual and material culture, and studio components.

    Pierre N. LeBlanc's Biography Page
    Areas of Interests:
    On October 28th, 1963 Gédéon Thibodeau was born.  On December 24th of the same year, he was adopted and became Pierre Noël LeBlanc.  At the age of thirteen he received his first 35mm camera, but he still had his sights set on becoming a scientist.  In 1984 a particularly astute invertebrate biology professor told him that he had nothing resembling a scientific thought process, not even a bit.  In 1984, Pierre becomes a student at the Visual Arts Department of the Université de Moncton (1984-88); he then continued to follow his research and passions at the MFA programme at Montréal's Concordia University (1989-92).

    Since 1992, Pierre N. LeBlanc has taught photography, printmaking and digital imaging first at Concordia University, then at the Université de Moncton and today at Grenfell Campus, the west coast campus of Memorial University of Newfoundland.

    In 1991, the Commission GEDEON Commission was born.  The C.G.C. is the agent provocateur of Mr. LeBlanc's cultural enterprises.  It offers a philosophical space that allows for the incorporation of the ideas and the identities of the artist and his processes.  The C.G.C. encompasses the young artist's influences, his inspirations coming mostly from literary, cinematographic and televisual spaces.  The C.G.C. seeks to eliminate the cult of the personality, the ivory tower and the notion of the absolute originality of the creator of visual culture.

    The Commission GEDEON Commission has exhibited work in Acadie, Québec, Ontario, France and the United States.
