Biographies

Tyler Muzzin graduated with a BA in Studio Art from the University of Guelph in 2003. He is currently pursuing an MFA at the University of Lethbridge. He has participated in exhibitions and screenings in Canada, Germany, and Greece.

Tara Lynn MacDougall is an interdisciplinary artist based in Lethbridge, AB. She received a BFA from NSCAD University in 2007 and is currently completing an MFA at the University of Lethbridge. She has presented work in exhibitions throughout Canada and the United States, including the upcoming Impossible Expectations at Hamilton Artists Inc. Her interest lies in a critical and humourous re-evaluation of the art historical canon, and reconsideration of distinctions between standard labour and artistic production. 

Migueltzinta Solis works in a broad range of mediums including installation, performance, textile, and video. His work engages questions of belonging and un-belonging to place, boundaries between animal, human and object, and queer, colonial and rural imaginaries. He is a first year MFA student at the University of Lethbridge.

Jean-Pierre Marchant is a Lethbridge-based Latino Canadian artist; he is an emerging filmmaker who is increasingly interested in combining analogue and digital filmmaking practices. JP's past work has explored themes such as the malaise of white-collar modernity, local histories, landscapes, and myths. He is currently working on a series of short films about suburban dreams and nightmares. His films have screened at many festivals nationally and internationally. He lives in Lethbridge, Alberta, with his partner and their 18 year old cat.

We would like to acknowledge funding support from the Ontario Arts Council, an agency of the Government of Ontario.
