Michael Snow

Michael Snow works in many media: film, video and sound installation, photography, holography, music, bookworks, sculpture, painting, and drawing. His visual artworks are widely collected and exhibited, including solo exhibitions at the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Power Plant (Toronto), National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa), Hara Museum (Tokyo), Museum of Modern Art (New York) and Centre Pompidou (Paris). Snow’s films and video have been shown extensively in festivals (London, New York, Rotterdam and Berlin) and are in the collections of the Oesterreichisches Filmmuseum (Vienna), Anthology Film Archives (New York) and Royal Belgian Film Archive (Brussels). A long-time professional musician, Snow has performed in Canada, the U.S., Europe and Japan – most often with Toronto-based CCMC – and has released many recordings. His interactive DVD-ROM "Anarchive 2-Digital Snow" (2002) is now online at www.fondation-langlois.org/digital-snow

Recent solo exhibitions have been presented at Le Fresnoy, studio national des arts contemporains in northern France (2011) and in 2012, at Jack Shainman Gallery (New York), Secession (Vienna) and Akbank Sanat, Istanbul. A comprehensive monograph is forthcoming from Ediciones Poligrafa, Barcelona.
