Jœy MORGAN



Joey Morgan has developed public artworks and multi-disciplinary installations which have been shown in site specific contexts and gallery exhibitions in the United States, Australia, Denmark, France and across Canada. Exhibition venues have included the National Gallery of Canada, the Power Plant in Toronto, the Musée d'Art Contemporain de Montréal, the Walter Phillips Gallery in Banff, and the Vancouver Art Gallery. In 1989, the CIAC presented an installation of Joey Morgan as part of Les Cent jours d’art contemporain de Montréal.

She represented Canada in 1992 in the Sydney Biennial and represented Vancouver in 1996 in Copenhagen's 96 Containers. She has been awarded artist in residence at the Cité Des Arts in Paris, at Oud Amelisweerd in the Netherlands, and at Strokestown House in Ireland.

Parallel bookworks and other editioned works have been published to accompany major projects; The Man Who Waits and Sleeps While I Dream was documented and re-presented both as an award-winning bookwork and a multi-faceted website. Lectures and workshops at universities and art schools include the Bauhaus University in Weimar, the Academie du Art in Rotterdam, the Netherlands; and Aki, Enschede, the Netherlands. She has received grants from the Canada Council (including the Lynch Staunton Award), the National Endowment for the Arts, the British Columbia Cultural Fund, and the Vermont Council for the Arts.
