Michael Snow Life & Work by Martha Langford

The work of Michael Snow spans more than fifty years of intense production, including paintings, sculptures, photographs, films, books, holograms, projections, installations, musical recordings, performances, and essays. Already recognized in Canada for his trademark series Walking Woman, which he began in 1961, Snow came to international attention in the late 1960s with his groundbreaking film Wavelength, 1966–67. Selected in collaboration with the artist, this brief survey demonstrates the great variety of perceptual questions that his work has raised, as well as the themes and strategies that unify his artistic production.
