Kingston conference

DEFINITION

The 1941 conference of Canadian Artists held at Queens University, Kingston, Ontario (June 26-28), it was under the auspices of the National Gallery of Canada and the Carnegie Corporation of New York, and under the leadership of Andre Bieler. It was attended by about 150 artists from across the country. The stated purpose was to discuss the position of the artist in Canadian Society (subjects: aesthetics, democracy, history, etc.) and technical methods of art production (subjects: solvents, varnishes, resins, etc.) in light of modern research. The result was the formation of the Federation of Canadian Artists, the first nationwide organization of its type. See Glossary entry, Federation of Canadian Artists.
