Julie Lequin is a French Canadian artist currently based in Quebec. She received a B.F.A. from Concordia University, Montreal, PQ in 2001 and an M.F.A. from Art Center College of Design, Pasadena, CA in 2005. Julie's multidisciplinary practice interweaves personal history with fictionalized events and circumstances in a manner that constantly blurs the line between the artist as individual and the artist as self-consciously constructed persona. She has exhibited at the Santa Barbara Contemporary Arts Forum in California, La Centrale Powerhouse in Montreal, White Columns in New York City and was most recently included in Between Document and Fiction at MausHabitos in Oporto, Portugual. Lequin was recently honored with the Joseph S. Stauffer Award from the Canada Council for the Arts and has completed residencies at Yaddo, Art Omi, Macdowell Colony and Les Recollets in Paris. 2nd Cannons Publications published her first book and DVD project in 2007.
