Born 1979 in Toronto, Gareth Long lives and works in Brooklyn. Underlying his diverse artistic practice is an interest in questioning and dismantling notions of authorship. The themes of copying, seriality, amateurism, stupidity, translation, and collaboration recur throughout his practice, both as a central thematic concern and as a method in the production of the work.
Gareth Long holds a BA in Visual Studies and Classical Civilizations from the University of Toronto and an MFA from Yale University. He has held solo exhibitions at Kunsthalle Wien, Austria; The Blaffer Art Museum, Houston; Oakville Galleries, Oakville; the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Lethbridge; Kate Werble Gallery, New York; Susan Hobbs Gallery, Toronto; Galerie Bernhard, Zürich; Michael Benevento Gallery, Super Dakota, Brussels; Los Angeles; SpazioA, Pistoia; TORRI, Paris. His work has been shown at galleries and institutions such as MoMA PS1, Long Island City; The Hessel Museum of Art at Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson; Museum of Contemporary Art Denver, Denver; Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal, Montreal; Artists Space, New York; Flat Time House, London; Spike Island, Bristol; Wiels, Brussels; Salzburger Kunstverein, Salzburg; Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe; and Witte de With, Rotterdam.
