The Inaugural Be3Dimensional Innovation Fund in Art
On May 26, 2016 Geoffrey Farmer and Duane Linklater were announced as the recipients of the inaugural
Be3Dimensional Innovation Fund grants in Art.
Geoffrey Farmer was born in 1967 in Vancouver, British Columbia, where he continues to live and work. He attended the Art Institute of San Francisco in 1990-1991, and the Emily Carr College of Art and Design in 1992. He combines theatrical techniques such as staging and improvisation to create rich and layered works that are open to interpretation and propose multiple alternative narratives. Developed over extended periods of time, his sculptures and installations are in a constant state of transformation as the artist continues to revisit and alter them.
Over his 20-year career, his works have been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions, including at the Louvre, Paris, the Tate Modern in London, dOCUMENTA (13) in Kassel, Germany, the Migros Museum of Contemporary Art in Zurich, the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto, the Art Gallery of Alberta in Edmonton, the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the Vancouver Art Gallery and the National Gallery of Canada.
He is represented by Catriona Jeffries Gallery in Vancouver and Casey Kaplan Gallery in New York. Geoffrey Farmer was selected in December 2015 to represent Canada at the 57th International Art Exhibition - La Biennale di Venezia, in Italy in 2017.
