Royden Rabinowitch began his career in Toronto. His first solo show in New York was in 1978 at the John Weber Gallery. His first European retrospective at the Städtisches Museum Abteiberg, Mönchengladbach, in 1985 was curated by Johannes Cladders. He has shown widely in Europe including solo shows at Wiener Secession, Vienna and the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam and was represented by Peter Pakesch in Vienna. Because he saw the art scene as mostly compromised by the ethos of advertising, he largely retreated to Cambridge, only occasionally showing with curators such as Wiesław Borowski, Rudi Fuchs, Jan Hoet and Harald Szeemann.
