Luis Jacob (

An artist, curator, educator, writer, organizer and activist, Luis Jacob's practice challenges categorization. His art production alone manifests itself as photography, sculpture, performance, artist multiples, public intervention, video and installation. Jacob's pursuits are varied, but all are unified by his thoughtful concern for the philosophical and cultural possibilities of social interaction.

Recent solo exhibitions of his work include Habitat, Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto, Ontario); Just Do It!, Khyber Centre for the Arts (Halifax, Nova Scotia); Flashlight, Toronto Sculpture Garden (Toronto, Ontario); Open Your Mouth and Your Mind Will Follow, which travelled to Articule, (Montreal, Quebec), Artspace Gallery (Peterborough, Ontario), AKA Gallery (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan), The New Gallery (Calgary, Alberta); and Towards a Theory, Het Wilde Weten (Rotterdam, The Netherlands).

Recent group exhibitions include Do You Think I'm Disco, Longwood Arts Center (Bronx, New York); Downtime: Constructing Leisure, New Langton Arts (San Francisco, California); Koch und Kesslau Gallery (Berlin, Germany); LTTR Explosion: Practice More Failure, Art in General (New York City); Tomorrow's News, Gallery Hippolyte (Helsinki, Finland); Better Worlds, Agnes Etherington Arts Centre (Kingston, Ontario); Art is Activism, Fine Arts Building Gallery, University of Alberta (Edmonton, Alberta); Voices in Transit, Cape Town Central Station (Cape Town, South Africa); and House Guests: Contemporary Art at the Grange, Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto, Ontario).
