Emily DiCarlo


Emily DiCarlo is an artist and writer whose interdisciplinary work applies methodologies that often produce collaborative, site-specific projects. Evidenced through video, performance and installation, her research connects the infrastructure of time with the intimacy of duration. Since 2007, her work has been shown both locally and abroad with most recent exhibitions at the Art Museum in Toronto and SÍM Gallery in Reykjavik, Iceland as part of their artist-in-residence program. She is the recipient of the 2020–2022 OAC Media Artist Creation Project grant, the 401 Richmond Career Launcher Prize, and recently held the 2019-2020 Canadian Social Sciences and Humanities Research grant (SSHRC). She has been a council member for The International Society for the Study of Time since 2016 and this past year, co-edited an issue of their academic journal KronoScope, which focused on “Anthropocenic Temporalities.” She currently lives and works in Toronto (Tkaronto), Canada.
