Bio/Research

Lora Senechal Carney is an art historian whose research in Canadian modern art has involved many years of reading letters, journals, artists' statements, newspaper and magazine articles written by Canadian artists and critics from 1930 to 1960. In her work she considers how these writings explore and illuminate the relation of art and ideas about art to their rapidly changing historical, social, and political backgrounds. This is the subject of her chapter in Visual Art in Canada (Oxford University Press 2010) and of a book manuscript. Her other major field of research is contemporary North American public art, and collaborative art public art projects in particular. She co-edited "Landscape, Cultural Spaces, Ecology," a special issue of the art history journal RACAR (2010), and her article in that issue is a study of a collaborative reclamation project in Pennsylvania. She teaches VPA and VPH courses in modern and contemporary art.
