Vesna Krstich

Vesna Krstich is an art critic, curator, and art historian who teaches Visual Arts and Theory of Knowledge at Upper Canada College in Toronto. Her research explores the interrelationship between performance-based practices and experimental pedagogy from the 1960s onwards. She holds an MA in Art Education from Concordia University and an MA in the History of Art from the Courtauld Institute of Art, where she specialized in Contemporary Art. In 2013 she developed a curatorial residency entitled Back to School at Gallery TPW in Toronto, which sought to examine performance instructions or ‘scores’ as curriculum material through a program of workshops, screenings, and artist talks. As a collaborator on The Pedagogical Impulse project, she continues her archival investigation into the histories of Fluxus and Happenings and curriculum reform. Krstich has received research grants from the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council and the Toronto Arts Council. She has published in C Magazine, Art Papers, Parachute, Canadian Art, and Curator: The Museum Journal, among others. Her recent publication, “Multiple Elementary, Multiple Leftovers, Multiple Learning” appears in a critical anthology of texts edited by Helen Reed and Hannah Jickling, and jointly published by YYZ (Toronto) and Black Dog (UK) in 2017.
