Callum Morton

Biography

Born Montreal, Canada 1965
Lives and works in Melbourne, Australia



Callum Morton has exhibited nationally and internationally since 1990. His work has consistently addressed the ‘architecture of experience’, the moment of encounter between viewer and object, or viewer and built environment. Morton focuses on the relationship between private and public space, between reality and illusion.

Callum Morton is currently Professor of Fine Art at Monash Art Design & Architecture, Monash University, Melbourne. In 2013, he was awarded the Redlands Konica Minolta Art Prize.

His works are held in every major state collection in Australia, as well as private collections including those of the Lyon Housemuseum, Melbourne; TarraWarra Museum of Art, Victoria; the Michael Buxton Contemporary Australian Art Collection, Melbourne; and the Museum of Old and New Art, Tasmania.
