Liz Magor is an Associate Professor in Visual Arts. Her work is sculptural, involving ordinary or familiar objects refashioned and presented in an altered context. She is very studio oriented in the production of her work, taking the position that process matters; materials have intelligence; and things are different than pictures.
Liz is a practicing visual artist with an extensive exhibition record. Internationally she has exhibited at Documenta 8 in Kassel Germany, the Sydney Biennale and the Venice Biennale. She has had solo exhibitions across Canada, including a survey of her work at the Vancouver Art Gallery and the PowerPlant in Toronto. Her solo exhibition "The Mouth and other storage facilities", originating at the Henry Art Museum in Seattle, is presently touring Canada.
