Colin Griffiths is a media arts specialist with a 40-year history of installation and technical expertise, exhibition management, and development of cultural projects. He founded Contemporary Art Logistics and works directly with artists, coordinating autonomous exhibition systems that utilize diverse technologies, including synchronized 35mm slides, 16mm and 35mm film, video projection, 3D audio and acoustics, and virtual reality. Colin’s collaboration with contemporary artists is global in scope, resulting in an extensive history of international exhibitions, as well as public art initiatives. A critical aspect of his practice is reiterating the intent of the artist through meticulous attention to the nature of the viewer’s encounter with the artwork. Recent activities include installing a multiple computer projection in Salem, MA, to premiere in the fall of 2019; producing a large-scale laser installation in 2018; a 2016-2017 Vancouver Art Gallery outdoor commission with Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun. Colin is also a consultant for the Peabody Essex Museum in Salem, MA, as well as a visiting producer for the Interactive Arts program at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. He is past President of the Western Front Society, and was the Founder and Director of Convertible Showroom, a contemporary art gallery. Colin was a member of the Vancouver art band U-J3RK5 and continues to make dissonant music in melodic spaces.
