Jamie Q

 

Jamie Q is a visual artist who makes paintings, drawings, zines, prints, sculptures, and textile pieces. They have shown their art and distributed their zines internationally, including notable group shows at Krets Gallery in Sweden, the Luggage Store Annex in San Francisco, and Museum London in Ontario; and solo exhibitions at DNA Artspace in London, L’APPÂT in Brussels, Art Metropole in Toronto, and Parentheses Gallery & Art Projects in Halifax.

Jamie holds a BFA from the Alberta College of Art & Design (2002) and an MFA from Western University (2010). Their MFA research focused on the politics and aesthetics of the do-it-yourself ethic, as well as the social potential of art objects and DIY distribution strategies. Their most recent projects work through ideas around arts economies and value, gender and queerness, craft and repurposed materials, and process-based play.

Jamie has taught art classes at Western University and the Art Gallery of Ontario, as well as workshops at various spaces including Museum London and Grant MacEwan University. They have been teaching screenprinting at The Make Den since October 2015, and love helping students make their project dreams happen!
