Biography 

Etienne Zack had his first solo exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Montreal, Canada (with catalogue) in spring 2010. His work has also been shown in numerous solo exhibitions including Bergen Kunsthall, Bergen, Norway; Thomas Dane Gallery, London, England; Marina-Miranda, Madrid, Spain; Equinox Gallery, Vancouver, Canada; Blackwood Gallery at the University of Toronto, Mississauga, Canada. Zack’s work was also been included in East International 2004 (selectors: Neo Rauch and Harry Gerb Lybke), Norwich, England; The Model, Sligo, Ireland; the National Gallery of Canada; Vancouver Art Gallery, Canada; Nicole Klagsbrun, New York, United States; Projektraum Viktor Bucher, Vienna, Austria, and was part of the 2008 Quebec Triennial at the Museum of Contemporary Art of Montreal, Canada. 

In 2012, Etienne Zack’s was included in Oh, Canada, at Mass. MoCA, USA, the largest survey of Canadian art in the US. The Oh, Canada exhibition will be touring until 2015. 

Etienne Zack is the 2005 winner of the RBC Painting Competition, the 2008 City of Montreal's Pierre-Ayot prize and the recipient of the 2014 Emily Award in Vancouver, Canada. 

His work is collected by major institutions and museums, including the National Gallery of Canada, Vancouver Art Gallery, Museum of Contemporary Art of Montreal, National Fine Arts Museum of Quebec, Montreal Fine Arts Museum, Surrey Art Gallery, Glenbow Museum and The Model, Ireland. His work can also be found in corporate and private collections in the United States, Europe, Scandinavia and the UK. 

Etienne Zack’s work uses fictitious possibilities and historical moments that are staged into paintings that are reminiscent of fabricated environments. Each painting operates within its own systems and logic. A painting is made up of a succession of ideas that are performed using paint. In effect, the paintings function as a way to activate and pry open different pictorial, cultural, and historical forces in order to experience them yet again in unique ways. 

Etienne Zack lives and works in Los Angeles, USA since 2010.
