Robert Luzar is an artist, writer and educator based in Toronto (CA) and Bath (UK). Engaging live-art, visual technology, and nonstandard forms of drawing, Luzar explores questions of ‘multiplicity’ as a materialist event traversing mark-making and self-interruptive gesture. He publishes writings on art and critical theory, and is Lecturer in Fine Art, at Bath Spa University (UK). He holds a Master of Arts degree from the Chelsea College of Art and Design, and a PhD from Central Saint Martins (UK). And his works are exhibited internationally in galleries, museums, and live-art events, some recent projects of which include: (2015) DRAWinternational (FR); (2014) Life and Limb (Orillia Museum of Art & History, CA), In Friendship/Mit Gelassenheit (Künstlerhaus Dortmund, DE); (2013) Draw to Perform (Performance Space, UK); (2012) Level (Talbot Rice Gallery, UK); (2011) The Creekside Open (curated by Phyllida Barlow, APT Gallery, England), London International (curated by Edward Lucie Smith, KCCC, Lithuania).

The University of Guelph resides on the land of the Between the Lakes Treaty No. 3, the territory of the Mississaugas of the Credit. This land is part of the Dish with One Spoon, a covenant between Indigenous nations to live peaceably on the territories of the Great Lakes region. We recognize that today this gathering place is home to many First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples and acknowledging them reminds us of our collective responsibility to the land where we learn, live and work.
