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.

For a number of years in the late 1960s he was an active member of the Vancouver art collective known as The Intermedia Society. Over the past 35 years he has considered himself to be a multi-disciplinary artist, often blurring the lines between established art media. He has worked in various combinations with photography, screenprinting, installation, time-based media, digital media, publishing, mail art, and conceptual and performance art.

“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.”
