About

Marc Losier is a Toronto-born artist, currently living and working in Western Newfoundland. His 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, sound, and installation - frequently entangling these media with materials in an effort to contextualize personal histories.  Marc has exhibited in both Canada and the US, including the FAAS 4 Biennale in 2014, and a solo exhibition at the White Water Gallery in 2015. He has also participated in multiple visual arts residencies at The Banff Centre and the Kala Art Institute in Berkeley, California.  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 for his multi-site project, Échange (Exchange)/Post(e).  Marc has been visiting faculty at Ryerson University's School of Image Arts, the San Francisco Art Institute, and OCAD University in Toronto.  In 2016, he joined the faculty of visual art at Memorial University in Corner Brook, Newfoundland as an Assistant Professor of Photography.
