Sam Cotter | Biography

Sam Cotter is a Toronto-based artist whose practice exists at the intersection of research, text, and image. Cotter regularly employs photography, film, and installation to examine issues of visual representation and artifice. Central to the construction of all of his projects is an embedded documentary element mediated through a self-reflexive filter. Recent exhibitions and projects include Reciprocity – a failure to communicate, a special commission for C Magazine’s participation at the L.A. Art Book Fair (2015), Spit and Image at Ryerson Image Centre (2014) and An Exhibition (with Fraser McCallum) at Xpace Cultural Centre (2014). Cotter received a BFA from Ryerson University in 2012 and is currently a candidate in the Master of Visual Studies Program at the University of Toronto.
