Harley Morman’s visual work takes a playful approach to examining the social relations between art, artists and institutions. A settler on Treaty 7 land, Morman is trans and has lived with multiple sclerosis for over a decade. While earning a B.A. in Sociology from the University of Saskatchewan (2003) he worked in communications with various queer and cultural non-profits. In 2016, he received an M.F.A. from the University of Lethbridge, where he is currently a PhD student in Cultural, Social, and Political Thought. Living between a used RV dealership and a potato chip factory, Morman can be found riding his red tricycle around around around around, over, under, and through.
The Art Gallery of Alberta respectfully acknowledges that we are located in Treaty 6 Territory, the traditional land of diverse Indigenous Peoples including the Plains Cree, Woodland Cree, Beaver Cree, Nitsitapi/Blackfoot, Métis, Nakota Sioux, Anishinaabe/Saulteaux/Ojibwe and Dene Peoples. We also acknowledge the many Indigenous, Inuit and Métis people who make Alberta their home today.
