AM Trépanier

AM Trépanier is an artist, editor and cultural worker. Their practice weaves together research and creation to propose counter-histories informed by social movements and struggles, community archives, alternative media, popular education and oral history. Trépanier’s work has been shown in group exhibitions at VOX, centre de l’image contemporaine (Montreal), Eeeeh (Nyon), AXENÉO7 (Gatineau) and at Suoni Per Il Popolo (Montreal). They regularly write on art, media and culture and have published periodicals such as Terms (Leonard & Bina Ellen Gallery), Espace art actuel, OEI, esse, Sabir and Spirale. Their recently completed Master’s thesis examines the critical appropriation of the web and digital technologies by the Studio XX (now Ada X), a Montreal-based artist-run centre gathering cyberfeminist artists and scholars in the 1990s. Trépanier is the co-founder and co-editor of Cigale, an editorial platform supporting experimental, documentary and critical writing and translation in the arts.
