In 2016, the artist was named a MacArthur Fellow.

Vincent Fecteau is a sculptor; from early photo-collage works to pieces executed in the media of foam core, resin clay, found objects and papier-mâché, Fecteau takes an intuitive approach towards the manipulation of materials. At once formal experiments and manifestations of a highly personal exploration of art-making and its attendant resonances, Fecteaufs work eschews any ideology in favor of a focused yet open-ended approach to practice and engagement with fundamental concerns. Highly refined yet executed, generally, in humble materials and at an approachable scale, Fecteaufs art is highly accessible to those interested in a contemporary encounter with the media of sculpture.
