Michael Snow is an internationally-acclaimed filmmaker and multi-disciplinary artist. Consistently inventive, Snow crosses disciplinary boundaries by working in painting, sculpture, video, film, photography, holography, drawing, books and music. His work investigates time, motion, sound, seeing and representation as it challenges perception and redirects our experience of art. Snow’s work is represented in private and public collections including the National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa), the Museum of Modern Art (New York), Museum Ludwig (Cologne and Vienna), and Centre Georges-Pompidou (Paris). The recipient of numerous awards, Snow received a Guggenheim Fellowship (1972), the Order of Canada (1982), the Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts (2000), and an honorary doctorate from the Université de Paris I, Panthéon-Sorbonne (2004). Snow is also an OCAD alumnus and was recognized as an OCAD Honorary Fellow in 1983.
