In this talk, Ian Wallace examines a few works in detail from his hotel series in which he has used photography to reference a number of his intellectual concerns.
Ian Wallace was born in Shoreham, England in 1943. After completing his studies at the University of British Columbia and graduating with a Master’s Degree in Art History, he taught art history at UBC from 1967 to 1970 and at the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design from 1972 to 1998.
Wallace has been active in the creation, promotion and appreciation of innovative processes in contemporary art practice through writing, teaching and exhibiting his work. Wallace has been an influential figure in the development of an internationally acknowledged photographic and conceptual art practice in Vancouver.
In 2004 he was the recipient of the Governor General’s Award for the Visual Arts, in 2012 he was appointed Officer of the Order of Canada, and in 2016 he was awarded the Chevalier dans l’Ordre des Arts et Des Lettres, from the Ministry of Culture of France.
Ian Wallace is represented by Catriona Jeffries Gallery, Vancouver; Hauser & Wirth, London, New York and Zurich; Jessica Silverman, San Francisco; and Galerie Greta Meert, Brussels.
