Guyana-born Lucie Chan makes multi-layered drawing installations that often include animations and working with participants to discover potentially connected cross-cultural narratives between seemingly disparate lives.
She has participated in several duo and group exhibitions at the National Gallery of Canada, Carleton Art Gallery, Dalhousie Art Gallery, Eyelevel Gallery, MOCCA, Richmond Art Gallery, TRUCK Gallery, Robert McLaughlin Gallery, Oboro, Kitchener Waterloo Art Gallery, and Center A, among others. Her work has also been featured in solo exhibitions at such venues as the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, the MAI (Montréal Arts Interculturels), and Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery. She also has completed residencies across Canada, Portugal, Spain, France, and Italy.
