RON BENNER was born in London, Ontario, where he lives and works. He studied agricultural engineering at the University of Guelph (1969-70) before beginning a multifaceted career in the visual arts. Since then, Benner has contributed to the development of artist-run initiatives in London and beyond. He has participated in numerous residencies, symposia, and outreach initiatives which aim to extend the discourse on legacies of imperialism on our land usage.

An off-site photographic/garden installation was part of the Transformation of Canadian Landscape Art: The Inside and Outside of Being which was installed in connection with the Xi’an Art Museum, Xi’an, China in 2014. In 2011 he was appointed Adjunct Research Professor in the Department of Visual Arts, Faculty of Arts and Humanities, Western University, London, Ontario. In 2008, Museum London published a bi-lingual (French & English) Ron Benner: Gardens of a Colonial Present documenting his numerous photographic/garden installations from 1987-2005. His most recent publication is Ron Benner:Three Questions, published by McIntosh Gallery, Western University, in 2016.
