ABOUT THE ARTIST
June Clark (b. 1941, Harlem, New York; Lives and works in Toronto) is a Toronto-based artist working in photography, sculpture and collage. Best known for her photo etchings and sculptural assemblages, Clark's autobiographical practice investigates themes of black diasporic identity, exile and memory work through reflections on her Harlem childhood and subsequent migration to Canada as a young adult. She began developing her early photography work through the Baldwin Street Gallery of Photography, co-founding The Women's Photography Co-op there in the early 1970s. Since then, her work has been exhibited in Toronto, Oakville, Burlington, Guelph, Montréal, New York City, Paris, Kiev and Quito, Ecuador. Recent solo exhibitions include: June Clark: Photographs, Daniel Faria Gallery, Toronto (2023); June Clark: Harlem Quilt, The Ringling Museum of Art, Sarasota, FL (2022); Unrequited Love, Daniel Faria Gallery, Toronto (2020); JUNE CLARK, Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto (2018).
