Chris Lloyd began his art career in 1992 in Saint John, NB. After realizing he was in sore need of training he attended the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in Halifax, graduating with a BFA in 1999. Between 2001-2003 he was director of the Khyber Centre for the Arts in Halifax, NS. Since 2001 he has been writing (almost) daily email to the Prime Minister of Canada while trying half-heartedly to become the official PM portrait painter. He has had solo exhibitions at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia (2003), the Art Gallery of Calgary (2005) and Le Lieu (2015). In 2003 he participated in the 21st Symposium d’art contemporain de Baie-St-Paul, and in 2005 the TRAFIC: Inter / nationale d’art actuel en Abitibi-Témiscamingue and Manif d’art 3: cynismes? the Biennale of Québec. In 2005 he returned to Saint John, NB to create and manage a new artist-run centre for contemporary art, Third Space. In 2007 he joined the editorial committee for decentre: concerning artist-run culture, a book project sponsored by YYZ, and moved back to Montréal to pursue freelance curating and other projects. In 2009 he was included in the conceptual art survey show Time as Activity curated by Marie-Josée Jean from VOX. From 2008-15 he was Chief Technician at DHC-ART. In 2012 he began a multi-year performance art project called Everyday Goalie. In 2015, after a political infiltration project was derailed by the CBC, he ran as an Independent candidate in the 42nd General Election but lost badly to Justin Trudeau. In 2016-17 he joined the technical team at the National Gallery of Canada. He currently lives in Montreal and works as a freelance art handler while continuing to make art, some of which is available exclusively through Tuck. He still writes the Prime Minister, almost daily.
