Meet the Speaker

Portrait of Rebecca Basciano

Rebecca Basciano, MA, is the Curator at the Ottawa Art Gallery, where she specializes in Canadian art. She has a demonstrated interest in promoting the work of women artists, while also advocating for consistent representation. For the past six years, she has been curating exhibitions from the Gallery’s Firestone Collection of Canadian Art, including group shows featuring artists such as Yvonne McKague Housser, Kathleen Daly, Anne Savage, Marcelle Ferron, and Ghitta Caiserman. Her in-depth research on Frances-Anne Johnston is a natural continuation of this dialogue, delving deeper into reconsiderations and critiques of the art-historical canon.
