Micah Lexier is a Toronto-based artist, curator, and collector. He has a deep interest in measurement, increment, games, puzzles, found imagery, and the kinds of casual marks we make in our day-to-day lives. He has had over 100 solo exhibitions, participated in almost 200 group exhibitions and produced a dozen permanent public commissions, including the Sheppard and Leslie subway station in Toronto. In the fall of 2013, The Power Plant presented a large survey exhibition of Lexier’s work entitled One, and Two, and More Than Two. Lexier has undertaken a number of collaborations with visual artists, students, family members and writers, including Booker finalist Colm Tóibín, and Griffin Poetry Prize winner Christian Bök. Recent publications include I’m Thinking of A Number, a 30-year survey of Lexier’s ephemera, published by the Press of the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design, and Call Ampersand Response, a collaborative bookwork published this year by Zurich publisher Nieves. Lexier’s work is in numerous public and corporate collections including The British Museum (London, England), the Contemporary Art Gallery (Sydney, Australia), The National Gallery of Canada (Ottawa) and The Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto).
