The Canadian Art Foundation board of directors formally announced that Richard Rhodes, editor of Canadian Art, is stepping down in December 2015 after nearly 20 years with the publication.
Rhodes is a well-known figure in the Canadian art community and beyond. Before his arrival at Canadian Art, he was a regular review contributor to Artforum, a curator at Oakville Galleries and Toronto’s Power Plant, and the founding editor of C Magazine. In 2001, Rhodes published a popular, well-reviewed art-history book for young adults, A First Book of Canadian Art.
May 2016, Richard Rhodes opened Dupont Projects, presenting contemporary art exhibitions monthly. DCP assisted with preparation of the gallery, storage and office.
