Download CV

Jenine Marsh (b. 1984, Calgary, Alberta, Canada) received  her BFA from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 2007 and her MFA from the University of Guelph in 2013. Marsh’s practice examines points of physical contact as spaces of exchange and subjugation. Through immersive installations and intimate sculptural arrangements, disembodied casts of the artist’s own hands emphasize physical contact as the first and last spaces of exchange. In the context of a dominant culture rooted in patriarchy and capitalism, Marsh’s work imagines the potential for new interactions between individuals that gesture against capitalist oppression through subtle spatial and material subversions.

Marsh’s work has been exhibited in Canadian galleries such as Centre Clark, Montreal (2019); Franz Kaka, Toronto (2019); Griffin Art Projects, Vancouver (2018); Cooper Cole, Toronto (2017); Vie d’ange, Montreal (2017); Jarvis Hall Gallery, Calgary (2017; and Modern Fuel, Kingston (2016) . She has also exhibited in international museums and galleries including Essex Flowers, New York (2020); Palais de Tokyo, Paris (2019); OSL Contemporary, Oslo (2019); HKS Guesthouse, Bergen (2018); Night Gallery, Los Angeles (2017); and Lulu, Mexico City (2015). She has twice served as artist in residence at the Banff Centre for the Arts in 2009 and 2010, and has also completed residencies at AiR Bergen at USF Verftet, Bergen (2018); La Datcha, Berlin (2018); SOMA, Mexico City (2018); Rupert, Vilnius (2017); and Vermont Studio Center, Johnson (2011). Marsh lives and works in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
