About Mark Neufeld

 Mark Neufeld

Mark Neufeld


Mark Neufeld is an artist working out of Winnipeg where he currently teaches at the University of Manitoba School of Art. He works with a variety of media, with painting as the starting point for his activities. His exhibitions often take the form of installations that interweave paintings with readymade objects, assemblages, and presentation strategies borrowed from the curatorial domain. Neufeld is the recipient of a number of awards and grants, including the Joseph Plaskett Award, which was created to support the recipient for a year of living and producing art abroad. He has exhibited across Canada, in the United States, in Germany, Australia and Norway, and most recently exhibited A Performance with Two Sculptures at the Southern Alberta Art Gallery, The Undiscovered Continent at Deluge Contemporary Art in Victoria BC, 55 Tschaikowskistrasse (along with Cedric Bomford) at Gallery Atsui in Vancouver, and The Greenhorn, a solo exhibition at Atelierhof Kreuzberg in Berlin, Germany.
