Associate Professor: Art Studio

Yvonne Singer is a practising artist with an active national and international exhibition record. Her installation works employ multimedia techniques, often with cryptic texts to articulate cultural issues of disjuncture and perception. She is particularly interested in the intersection of public and private histories. Recent exhibitions include Crossroad (Visual Art Centre, Clarington), doing time (The Red Head Gallery, Toronto), Staging Memory (Montreal Holocaust Centre) and The Veiled Room (ACC Galerie, Weimar, Germany). She has received several public art commissions and her work is found in many private collections. She is a member of The Red Head Gallery and the Art Advisory Committee of The Koffler Gallery, and currently serves on the board of the Toronto Arts Council. Professor Singer has been teaching at York University on a part-time basis since 1980 in Atkinson College, the Faculty of Education and the Graduate Program in Visual Arts. She joined the Department of Visual Arts as a full-time faculty member in 1999 and currently serves as director of the Graduate Program in Visual Arts.
