Nadia Myre

Associate Artist Residency

Nadia Myre is an interdisciplinary artist who lives and works in Montreal. As an Algonquin member of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinaabeg First Nation, her work explores the politics of belonging by positioning it within a framework of Indigenous resistance and resilience, and is driven by a curiosity around transcultural objects and intercultural transmission. Through beadwork, public art, and participatory projects, Nadia’s work weaves together complex histories of Aboriginal identity, nationhood, memory, and labour.

Her work is widely collected and exhibited and can be seen in the Canadian Embassies of New York, London, Paris and Greece. Most recent exhibitions include: Listen, speak, and sing (Prefix ICA, Toronto); Balancing Acts (Textile Museum, Toronto); Show Me Your Wound (Dom Wein, Vienna); Code Switching and Other Work (The Briggait, Glasgow International); Tout ce qui reste/Scattered Remains (Montreal Museum of Fine Arts). Nadia is the recipient of numerous commissions and awards, notably the 2014 Sobey Art Award for Canadian artists under 40, and Compagne de l'Ordre des arts et des lettres du Québec (2019).

Associate Artist Residency

Acme's Associate Artist Residency allows artists to apply directly to Acme for shorter-term (up to three months) residency opportunities. These residencies are selected directly by Acme and tailored to suit the development and networking needs of international artists, allowing them to engage in research, develop relationships and focus on their work in a supported environment.

This residency has been supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.
