The CEO of Saskatoon, Canada’s Remai Modern, Gregory Burke, is under investigation by the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission for alleged workplace harassment after a complaint was filed by a former female co-worker, according to CBC News.
Burke announced his resignation from Remai Modern last December to become director of the Auckland Art Gallery in New Zealand. His last day with the museum is March 15.
CBC obtained a document with the complaint that was filed by the former co-worker, and the defendant’s lawyer confirmed its existence.
The commission’s investigator, Lewanna Dubray, said in the document, “My aim investigating this complaint is to determine the facts and gather relevant perspectives on the situation.”
ARTnews has reached out to the Remai and the Saskatchewan Human Rights Commission, and the post will be updated when we hear back. Burke could not immediately be reached.
