Elizabeth MacKenzie has lived and worked in a number of Canadian cities, including Toronto, Saskatoon, Edmonton and currently resides in Vancouver, the unceded traditional territories of the Coast Salish peoples of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations.
She uses drawing to explore the productive aspects of uncertainty through repetition, interrogations of portraiture and considerations of intersubjective experience. MacKenzie’s drawing installations have been shown across Canada, including exhibitions at the Mount Saint Vincent Art Gallery (Halifax), the Agnes Etherington Art Centre (Kingston), the Glenbow Museum (Calgary), the Mackenzie Art Gallery (Regina) and the Vancouver Art Gallery. She participated in the group show, YYZ World Tour, at the Embassy Cultural House in 1986. She maintains an ongoing commitment to collaborative and community-engaged art practices, critical writing and teaching.
