Artistic Director (2016-2017)
Contributing Editor of Flotilla Playbook (2018-2019)
Michael D. McCormack completed his Intermedia MFA at NSCAD University in his hometown of Halifax, NS in May of 2015. He was the founder of the McCleave Gallery of Fine Art from 2002 until its merge with the Suitcase Art Gallery Space Research Institute (SAGSRI) in 2007.
From 2009 to 2013 he worked as Director of Eyelevel Gallery and representative for the Association of Artist-run Centres from the Atlantic where he directed and curated projects such as 3X3X3 (Akimbo’s critics pick of best exhibition of 2011), The World Portable Gallery Convention (2012), The Point Pleasant Park Performance Series (2011), The Kitchen Party (2013), amongst many others. He currently is a sessional instructor at NSCAD University in Halifax, NS where he also works as an independent artist and curator. Michael’s approach as a curator is highly collaborative, stemming primarily from an artists perspective, while fostering an experiential dialogue between artists, project partners, and the communities they interact with.
