GDAG's new Director & Curator: Jeff Morton

Godfrey Dean Art Gallery is pleased to welcome Jeff Morton as the new Director and Curator, starting October 1, 2020.
 
Jeff Morton is a composer, media artist, and arts professional from rural southeast Saskatchewan, Treaty 2, land of the Blackfoot, Anishinabewaki, Assiniboine, and Sioux, and the traditional homeland of the Métis Nation.
 
As an artist and composer, Jeff’s work integrates music and media art, exploring themes of sound-making, communication, and transcription. Drawing on traditional instruments, found musical objects, natural materials, and technology, his performances and installations have been presented in galleries, festivals, and showcases in Canada and internationally over the past 20 years.
 
As an arts professional, Jeff has worked with organizations and galleries across Canada, including the Canada Council for the Arts, Saskatchewan Arts Board, MacKenzie Art Gallery, Dunlop Art Gallery, Neutral Ground Artist Run Centre, New Dance Horizons, Curtain Razors, the Art Gallery of Regina, Holophon Audio Arts, Open Space, CARFAC SASK, and the University of Victoria, among others. Across numerous projects and engagements, Jeff has had the role of project leader, consultant, producer, curator, preparator, technician, and designer. Recently, Jeff served as moderator for the Canadian New Music Network’s Policy and Funding Conversation, and he is part of an advisory committee working with the CNMN on the development of a national Participatory Creative Music Hub. In addition, as part of the Victoria artist collective ‘of-the-now’, Jeff is curator for the Archipelago series with colleague Mitch Renaud, and producer for the Decolonial Imaginings project with Stó:lo/Skwah scholar and author Dylan Robinson.
 
“I am excited to work in a region with diverse urban and rural communities and a rich cultural history, and to serve the area of the province that I call home. My experience with local arts organizations and the artistic landscape in Saskatchewan and across Canada has attuned me to the important role that galleries and art spaces have in our communities. As I step into this new role at the Godfrey Dean Art Gallery, I look forward to sharing and learning with all of the artists, leaders, and creative voices I will encounter here.”
