Steven Nunoda is a multidisciplinary artist based in Winnipeg Manitoba whose practice takes the form of long-term thematically interrelated research projects. Although oriented towards sculpture and installation, the work is physically and aesthetically diverse, acquiring form to suit the subject. Nunoda employs a variety of media including woodcarving, found-objects, photography, digital imaging, text and time-based strategies. His current project Ghostown is based on research into the Japanese-Canadian internment during World War II and its social, familial and personal fallout. Ghostown explores questions of culture, memory and family life through images, miniatures, installation and media-sculpture hybrids.
Nunoda’s work has been included in a range of juried and group exhibitions, including My Winnipeg: The Artist’s Choice curated by Cassidy Richardson at Plug In ICA, Winnipeg Manitoba (2013) and the 2002 Alberta Biennial of Contemporary Art curated by Catherine Crowston and Diana Sherlock. His solo exhibitions include Ghostown at the Stride Gallery, Calgary (2012), and Invisible Waterfall (2001) at the Nickle Arts Museum, University of Calgary, curated by Christine Sowiak. Currently working as an assistant professor in the School of Art at the University of Manitoba, Nunoda’s recent awards include a Manitoba Arts Council B Grant in the Visual Arts (2009) and a University of Manitoba Creative Works Grant (2011).
