Michael de Courcy, born in Montreal, PQ in 1944, studied at the École
des Beaux Arts, Montreal and the Vancouver School of Art. He has exhibited
widely both nationally and internationally and is represented in numerous
public collections, including those of the Vancouver Art Gallery and
the National Gallery of Canada. He has lectured and given workshops
at many cultural institutions including the School of the Art Institute
of Chicago, the University of British Columbia, and the Emily Carr Institute
of Art and Design.
“Art-making is, for the most part, an activity which connects me in meaningful ways to the world at large, to my community, and to my family. The focus of my work has consistently been on place, social identity, and everyday life. As interaction with the public has always been a prime motivation, I have worked to discover new and effective means (often beyond the conventional gallery setting) to position my work within my community in a relevant way.”
– M de C
