Jayce Salloum has been working in installation, photography, mixed media and video since 1975, in addition to curating exhibitions, conducting workshops and coordinating cultural events. Salloum is known for installation works that sensitively investigate historical, social and cultural contexts of place. The grandson of Lebanese immigrants, Salloum studied in the United States. Evolving what now epitomizes nomadic practice, Salloum has lived and worked in several Canadian and US cities but was most influenced by his time in Beirut. The central themes played out in his work include questions of exile, ethnic representation and notions of identity. Exhibiting nationally and internationally, his work is held in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada, the Museum of Modern Art and the Centre Pompidou, among other institutions. In 2014, Salloum won a Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts.
