Biography

Edith Brunette is an artist, a writer, and a researcher interested in the discourses which make and break power as well as the range of modes of political engagement, particularly in the field of art. Her recent projects, created in collective forms of practice, have focused on the ways we inhabit the land, the political agency of artists and the act of speaking out in times of social crisis. These projects have been exhibited in many galleries and art centers in Canada, the Netherlands, Japan, and Greece. Her writings have been published in several art magazines and publications, including Esse, Liberté, ETC, Inter, and Cassandre / Hors-Champs. She co-edited the book Going to, Making Do, Passing Just the Same (2021, with François Lemieux) and To Spoil the Party, to Set Our Joy Ablaze (2016, with Journée sans culture). She is currently conducting doctoral research in political studies at the University of Ottawa, for which she received the Pierre Elliott Trudeau Foundation Scholarship.
