The Greg Curnoe Bicycle Project – London, Ontario

butler-press-release

Based in London ON, artist Greg Curnoe was known for fostering the visual arts in his hometown until his sudden death in a cycling accident. In an effort to pay homage to this legendary artist and to learn more about the influence of his artist-run initiatives, Paul Butler organized the public bike tour “Greg Curnoe’s London.”

Working with Mike Barry (Mariposa Cycle), Butler rebuilt the artist’s favourite bicycle – Close the 49th Parallel ETC. Using the bike as a research vehicle, Butler rode through London with Curnoe’s family, friends and members of the arts and cycling communities, stopping at sites that were personally significant to Curnoe. At each location, local participants shared stories of Curnoe’s legacy.
