Colette Laliberté

Colette Laliberté’s idea-based practice encompasses drawings, digital prints, paintings, projections and site-specific wall works. She links her work with the ideology that grouped Malevich, Lissitzky and Moholy-Nagy; an ideology grounded in their belief in the future, and a utopian view of art as a universal language with the power to instil change. She owes the genesis of her work to this legacy. Born in Sherbrooke, Quebec Laliberté moved to Toronto in 1985 following her residency as Young Artists in Residence at the Banff Centre for the Arts. She earned a BFA from UQAM University and an MFA from Windsor University. Her works have been exhibited in numerous solo, duo and group exhibitions in Canada and abroad. Laliberté has also participated in residencies in France, Spain, New York, and most recently at The Durham Gallery in Stouffville, Ontario and Duntara Newfoundland.
