Phillip McCrum has worked in the Vancouver arts community in the 1980’s and 1990’s in a variety of capacities; curator of the OR Gallery, 1987-1989. Co-editor of BOO Magazine, 1994-1996 and associate and board member of several Artist Run Centres.
He has taught in a number of diverse communities from 1999-2004. These include a studio residency funded by the City of Hamburg City Art Council, teaching in the Fine Arts Department of the University of Lethbridge, a year of study at the University of Ulster, Belfast, Northern Ireland, and a year teaching at the Hangzhou University of Commerce, China, in the Postgraduate and Art and Design Departments.
His personal art practice and strategies of practice cover a number of mediums and I am very fond of experimenting with new medias and new materials. His art practice includes multiple exhibitions in a number of media; video, installation, sculpture, multimedia, and painting.
