Joyce Wieland Life & Work by Johanne Sloan

Joyce Wieland’s artworks can be found in many public museums and galleries across Canada, including the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; the Vancouver Art Gallery; the MacKenzie Art Gallery, Regina; the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; and the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. Many of her paintings and multimedia works are in private and corporate collections, however, and without a comprehensive list (catalogue raisonné) of her works it is difficult to grasp the entire scope of Wieland’s artistic production.

Wieland’s films can be rented in DVD format, individually or in five separate volumes of a set titled The Complete Works of Joyce Wieland, 1963–1986, from the Canadian Filmmakers Distribution Centre, which provides an online catalogue of its holdings at Cinémathèque québécoise makes the DVDs available for viewing by appointment at its location in Montreal; see
