URBANISM: Why Art Matters?

Matthew Teitelbaum is the director and CEO of the Art Gallery of Ontario. A determined advocate for the arts, Teitelbaum is equally as attentive about his love for his hometown.

Mr. Teitelbaum’s vision for the Art Gallery of Ontario is that it become “the imaginative centre of our city and province, reflecting our diverse and dynamic setting.” While working to enhance the AGO’s international profile as a leading cultural destination and innovative partner in the celebration of art, he has sought new ways to connect the art of our times to daily life and contemporary issues.
