Welcome: Raymond Boisjoly, Assistant Professor
We're pleased to officially welcome Raymond Boisjoly to the SCA as a new Assistant Professor in our Visual Art area, beginning this fall. Welcome, Raymond!
Raymond Boisjoly is an Indigenous artist and citizen of the Haida Nation, based in Vancouver. His work is derived from his training in photography. He uses screens, scanners, photocopiers, and inkjet printers to capture technological processes together with subject matter centered on cultural propriety, humour, and poetic-prophetic texts of mysterious origins.
Boisjoly received a BFA from Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design (2006) and a MFA from the University of British Columbia (2008). He was a recipient of the VIVA Award (2016), presented by the Jack and Doris Shadbolt Foundation for the Visual Arts, Vancouver. He has had solo exhibitions at VOX, Montreal (2016); Carleton University (2015); Platform Centre for Photographic + Digital Arts, Winnipeg (2014); Simon Fraser University Gallery (2013). He has been featured internationally in exhibitions including SITElines Santa Fe (2014); and in exhibitions at Triangle France, Marseille; Camera Austria, Vienna (2014) as well as L’avenir (looking forward), Biennale de Montréal (2014); The Power Plant, Toronto (2012); and the Vancouver Art Gallery (2016 and 2012-14).
