Hazel Meyer is a visual artist based in Toronto. From the monumental to the modest, her projects range from large installations, to small woven tags meant for an audience of one. She explores seemingly disparate yet overlapping preoccupations - intestines and athletics, feminism and the absurd, anxiety and textiles - using scale, language, play, repetition, gentle confrontation and ecstatic immersion. She has collaborated with teens, badminton players, composers, her mother and artists for projects that are devoted to a forever shifting ration of endurance, transgression, and laughs, as ways of being in one's body and the world. She holds an MFA from OCAD University (Toronto), a BFA from Concordia University (Montreal) and is presently the assistant coach for the junior girls' basketball team at Queen Victoria Public School.
This Artist Lecture runs in conjunction with Hazel Meyers' installation in the Queen's Square lobby which is on exhibition from November, 2015 - January, 2017. This is the second lecture in the three-part Fall Lecture Series highlighting the Conceptual Art Practices of the mid-career artists exhibiting at Queen's Square this fall.
