Alan Belcher



The Canadian artist, Alan Belcher, shows works that precisely demonstrate his complex, conceptual practice. Known for a tactile fusion of photography and object art, Belcher’s serial productions continue to be characterized today by a transparency of vision and simplicity of production with a concentrated consideration of materials. His sense of humour and reverence for a pop sensibility shines through in his works.

Alan Belcher was born in 1957 in Toronto, Canada, where he lives and works. He co-founded the Gallery Nature Morte (1982-88) with artist Peter Nagy in New York’s East Village.

He has mounted numerous solo exhibitions, which include Le Consortium (Dijon), greengrassi (London), Galerie Daniel Buchholz (Cologne), Japan Foundation (Toronto), Studio Guenzani (Milan), The Power Plant (Toronto), Wacoal Art Center (Tokyo), Jack Shainman Gallery (New York), Marlborough Gallery (New York), MKG127 Gallery (Toronto), and Margo Leavin Gallery (Los Angeles); among many others.

Belcher’s œuvre is represented worldwide in several public collections including the National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa), Centre Georges Pompidou (Paris), Morris & Helen Belkin Art Gallery at UBC (Vancouver), Musee des Beaux-Arts (Montréal), Fotomuseum Winterthur (Zürich), Walker Art Center (Minneapolis), Chase Manhattan Bank, Credit Suisse Collection, and Musée Nicéphore Niépce (Chalon-sur-Saône, France); as well as
