Marc Losier is a contemporary artist whose work examines the ways in which communities form and define their cultural memory through oral histories, images, and iconography. He uses photography and images, filmmaking, audio, and installation, frequently entangling these media with materials in an effort to contextualize personal histories. He has participated in visual arts residencies at The Banff Centre and the Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California, and his works have been exhibited in both Canada and the United States. In 2013, he was the recipient of a Toronto Arts Council emerging visual artist award, and has been awarded Visual Artist Project Grants from both the Ontario Arts Council and Canada Council for the Arts in 2015 for his on-going project, Échange (Exchange)/Post(e). Losier has previously taught in the photography programs at Ryerson University's School of Image Arts, the San Francisco Art Institute, and OCAD University in Toronto, where he co-founded the 2015 Art Camp Visual Arts Residency program with fellow artists Jennifer Long and Robyn Cumming. In 2016, Losier joined the faculty of visual art at Memorial University in Corner Brook, NL, where he is an Assistant Professor.
The artist gratefully acknowledges the support of the Toronto Arts Council, Ontario Arts Council, and Canada Council for the Arts.
