Since 1979, Canadian artist John Massey has exhibited nationally and internationally. He has worked variously in installation, video, photography and sculpture. Over the years he has developed a visual language that embodies conceptual content, questioning both personal and public paradigms.

Massey's work is housed in institutional collections including those of the National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa; the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo; the Musée d'Art Contemporain de Montréal, Montréal; the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; and the Ydessa Hendeles Art Foundation, Toronto, as well as numerous private and corporate collections.
