"At L'Briary (Library Gallery), our librarians are always on the lookout for Winnipeg artists, whatever their background or their so-called status, who seem new to the local scene. Kirouac is the ideal person to show here. Astonishingly, this is Kirouac's first solo exhibition in Winnipeg." – Cliff Eyland

Artist's Bio: Christine Kirouac is a Winnipeg-based artist/writer whose interdisciplinary projects are a melancholic "play" with how we all negotiate (dis)placement, (non)acceptance and belonging.

She has participated in residencies at the Banff Centre, Vermont Studio Centre and Unpack in Havana Cuba and received grants from Winnipeg & Manitoba Arts Councils, Canada Council, National Film Board and National Aboriginal Achievement Foundation. National and International exhibitions include Winnipeg Art Gallery, Museum London ON, Lisbon International Film Festival, Belfast NI Billboard Project, Toronto Ireland Park Foundation, 4th Cairo International Video Festival, Global House Gwang Ju South Korea, Heritage International Conference and Film Program; Berlin, Chicago Underground Film Festival, 5th Exposition L' Art Video et Multimedia Marseille, France, Asheville Art Museum NC, with exhibitions coming up at Maison Des Artistes in Winnipeg and a solo exhibition at South-Eastern Center of Contemporary Art in 2019.
