Artist Talk: Lucie Chan

NIC’s virtual 2022 Artist Talk series welcomes Lucie Chan, 2020 winner of the VIVA award and teacher at Emily Carr University. 

Lucie Chan makes multi-layered drawing installations that often include animations and working with participants to discover potentially connected cross-cultural narratives between seemingly disparate lives.

She teaches at Emily Carr University. She holds a BFA with distinction from the Alberta College of Art and Design and a MFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University with a specialization in drawing.

She has shown nationally in various group and solo exhibitions (Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery in Halifax, Nova Scotia, the Foreman Art Gallery in Sherbrooke, Quebec, Kitchener Waterloo Art Gallery in Kitchener, Ontario, and Centre A Gallery in Vancouver, BC) and has undertaken national and international artist residencies (Spain, Portugal, France, Italy, as well as Banff Centre for the Arts, Museum London in London, Ontario, and Campbell River Art Gallery in BC). 

In addition to receiving numerous provincial and national grants, she has been long-listed twice for the Sobey Art Award and won the VIVA Award in 2020.
