Janice Kerbel (b. 1969, Canada) lives and works in London. Kerbel has explored a recurring theme of communication (and sometimes its absence) in the form of print, performance, light and most recently sound. She was a Sobey Art Award finalist in 2006 and was nominated for the Turner Prize in 2015 for her performative work DOUG (2015), a nine-part song cycle performed by six singers. She has held teaching positions at the Slade School of Fine Art and is currently Professor at Goldsmiths College.

Recent group and solo exhibitions include Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver, Canada (2016); MoMA, New York, USA (2013); The Arts Club, Chicago, USA (2012); Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff Centre, Canada (2012); Badischer Kunstverein, Karlsruhe, Germany (2011); Chisenhale Gallery, London, UK (2011); and Tate Britain, London, UK (2010).
