VIVO welcomes JEREMY TODD to our team
Join us in welcoming JEREMY TODD to the VIVO team! We are excited about his new work with Outreach, Distribution, general coordination and the reorganization of Video Out in relation to the rest of the centre. He’s been a valued member of VIVO for many years and has much to offer in this new capacity.
Jeremy is an interdisciplinary artist concerned with the role(s) of artists and intellectuals in society and the formation of cultural memory. His practice involves writing, collage, digital imaging, painting, performance and more. His ongoing Not Sent Letters Project (since 2005), incorporates an online image/text archive, digital shorts, performance works and cooperatively realized public events that recur in the Lower Mainland every 2-4 months. He was the Director/Curator of the Helen Pitt Gallery ARC (2003-05), interim Director/Curator of the Richmond Art Gallery in 2007-8, and was a sessional instructor from 1999-2009 (at UBC, Emily Carr University and North Island College).
Jeremy has been on faculty within the Vancouver Film School Foundation Visual Art & Design Department for the past five years. He will be continuing on there with a reduced course load in order to work for VIVO and Video Out. Jeremy is also enjoying a new stage of family life with his wife, the Vancouver-based artist Natasha McHardy, and their one year-old son Emory, and continues to write, record and play new music with friends in various projects while regularly pining for a chance to go hiking in the Gulf Islands.
Please be sure to say hello and introduce yourself to Jeremy the next time you’re by the centre!
