About the mentors >
Jeanie Riddle’s work investigates the domestic and re-situates the everyday and time. She lives and works in Montreal where she earned her MFA at Concordia University (2005). She was the founding director of Parisian Laundry, assisting in launching the careers of emerging artists (2005-16). She has exhibited widely across Canada as well as in New York and Berlin. She is the recipient of numerous Canada Council grants including an International Residency in Paris, and her work is in numerous public and private collections including the T.D. Bank, Royal Bank of Canada, The Canadian Art Foundation, and The City of Montreal. She is represented by Galerie Antoine Ertaskiran.
Kimura Byol- Nathalie Lemoine is a feminist, conceptual and multimedia artist whose privileged themes are identities (diaspora, ethnicity, colorism, post-colonialism, immigration, genders) and who expresses it through calligraphy, painting, manipulated images, poetry, video and photography. Her work has been internationally exhibited and published. As a curator, Kimura develops projects that give a voice and a visibility to minorities and continues her work as an activist by documenting the history of adoption (abroad) in the media and the arts through the website ACA (the cultural archives of adoptees).
Sylvain Bouthillette is a multidisciplinary artist. His practice oscillates between music, dance, installation, painting and photography. Through his work's being both a mystical search and an aesthetic pursuit, the artist attempts to reconcile spiritual values with the intellectualism of critical discourse. Sylvain Bouthillette has been represented by Clint Roenisch Gallery of Toronto and Galerie Trois-Points in Montreal.
