Tim Whiten

Greater Toronto Art 2024

Tim Whiten (b. Inkster, Michigan) is a creator of cultural objects whose work seeks to return the acts of making and experiencing art to the historic notion of art as a means of unification with the divine. ln more than fifty years of exhibiting work, he has sought to navigate the territory of the human condition and its transformative potential. Whiten immigrated to Canada in 1968 and taught at York University–where he is now professor emeritus–for thirty-nine years. His work is held in numerous private, public, and corporate collections, such as the National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa), Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto), and de Young and Legion of Honor Museum (San Francisco). He is the 2022 recipient of the Gershon Iskowitz Prize, was a finalist for the Government of Ontario’s Premier’s Award for Excellence in the Arts, and, in 2023, he was awarded the Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts. He lives and works in Toronto and is represented by Olga Korper Gallery (Toronto).

For GTA24, three sculptures that were made across three decades, between 1973 and 1995, reflect the artist’s ongoing explorations of spirituality, metaphysics, and the human condition.
