Liz Magor is a Vancouver-based artist who studied at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver; Parsons School of Design, New York; and the Vancouver School of Art. Since the early 1970s, Magor has produced sculptural and photographic works concerned with the latent, affective range of familiar materials, images, and objects.

Her work has been exhibited in major international exhibitions such as Documenta VIII, Kassel; the 41st Venice Biennale; and the 4th Biennale of Sydney. More recently, she has had solo exhibitions at Le Credac, Ivry-sur Seine, France; Peephole, Milan, Italy; the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; The Henry Art Gallery, Seattle; and the Vancouver Art Gallery. In 2016, the Musee d’Art Contemporain de Montreal mounted a 40-year retrospective, which travelled through 2017, first to the Migros fur Gegenwartskunst , Zurich; then on to the Kunstverein in Hamburg; and the MAMAC in Nice. The exhibition was accompanied by a publication from JRP/ Ringier, Zurich. In 2019, Magor will open an exhibition of new work at Carpenter Center for Visual Art, Cambridge, Massachusetts. The exhibition will travel to the Renaissance Society in Chicago accompanied by a publication.

Liz Magor received the Governor General’s Award in 2001, the Audain Prize in 2009, and the Gershon Iskowitz Prize in 2014. In 2017/18 she was a guest of the DAAD Kunstler in Berlin Program.
