WIELAND

About

Joyce Wieland is largely regarded as one of Canada's most influential and important artists. A multi-disciplinary artist who produced work in a wide variety of media, Wieland's intelligent and irreverent explorations of feminist practice. Wieland made her mark in the film underground n New York in the 1960s, where she was associated with structural filmmakers such as Michael Snow and Hollis Frampton. While her films employ materialist formal strategies, the irony and socio-political content of her work sets her apart from her structuralist compatriots, as does her exploration of narrative.
