Victoria Munro

Bio.

New York based VICTORIA MUNRO (b. 1975, Wellington, NZ) works in a variety of media including installation, sculpture, ceramics and photography.  Her recent cast pieces in glazed and unglazed porcelain work towards "understanding the rigorous dedication of painters to their materials and how the sculptural properties of painting can inform a work's meaning."  This exploration is continued in her new series of woven canvas works in this exhibition.

Munro has exhibited work in solo and group exhibitions within New Zealand and internationally including the United States, Australia, Mexico, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom.  In 2011, Munro was commissioned by New York City Depertment of Transportation to create a major new public art project for the Grand Staircase at the George Staten Island Ferry Terminal.  In addition to her artistic practise, Munro is editor of SOAP magazine and has curated many exhibitions and projects.  She was a founding director of Room Gallery (rm3 / Rm212) from 1998 - 2002.  Most recently she curated the international group exhibition "We Go Far....and Way Back" at Show Gallery on Staten Island in New York.
