Welcome Courtney Thompson
Courtney R. Thompson repatriated to Winnipeg in 2012 via Chicago after she completed her MA from the Art History, Theory & Criticism program at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011, winning the sole Fellowship for her department. She has previously worked for The Art Institute of Chicago, The Art Gallery of Calgary and The New Gallery (Calgary, Alberta) and is currently a board member for send + receive: a festival of sound. She regularly contributes art criticism and artist interviews to ArtSlant and Art in Print and has presented papers at symposia across North America. Her research addresses spatial practices and slippages between art, architecture and the visual culture of dwelling. She was born in Winnipeg and despite her nineteen-year absence the winters are exactly as she remembers them.
