Judith Rodger is a writer, art historian, and freelance curator. She studied at McGill University, Montreal, where she received her BA in English and psychology. She continued her studies at the University of London, UK (postgraduate certificate in education), Western University, and the University of Toronto (MA).

Judith worked at LRAG during the Embassy Cultural House era and has been a long-time supporter of the arts in London. The first time she attended an event at the ECH was in 1983, when LRAG's curator of contemporary art Matthew Teitelbaum presented a lecture. She met Jamelie Hassan in 1970, when Hassan presented a work at the London Public Library and Art Museum (Museum London). More recently, she has been involved in an exhibition of Greg Curnoe’s work at the Art Gallery of Ontario that was also shown at Museum London. For the Art Canada Institute, she wrote the monograph Greg Curnoe: Life and Work. She is currently an adjunct professor in the Department of Visual Arts at Western University.
