I'm a historian, curator, teacher and designer living in Ottawa. In 2003 I completed a Harvard doctoral dissertation on the 18thC origins of the catalogue raisonné. Then I taught at Stanford University in California from 2003 to 2005. For the next six years I was Curator of European & American Art at the National Gallery of Canada. These days I'm involved in a variety of research, teaching, advocacy and design projects. For more information visit my web sites, including my personal blog (grahamlarkin.info) that will take you to my other sites including Design Incubator (designincubator.info), Slow Ottawa (slowottawa.ca), Vision Zero Canada (visionzero.ca) and Love 30 Canada (love30.ca).
