A Canadian artist and one of the most important experimental filmmakers of his generation, Snow was born in 1928, in Toronto, where he currently lives and works. First a painter and sculptor, he has been intensely involved since 1962 in creating videos, films, slide and audio installations, and photographic and holographic works, as well as public art. His work, particularly his experimental films such as the landmark “Wavelength” (1967), has had international exposure at prestigious institutions and events. His photography-based work is currently the subject of a major museum exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art.
