Emerging Social Practice Artists-In-Residence

The University of Lethbridge Art Gallery is pleased to announce that we have selected local artists Kylie Fineday and Angeline Simon for this new venture. Fineday and Simon will be mentored by Mohkinstsis (Calgary) based artist Alana Bartol as part of her project Processes of Remediation: art, relationships, nature. The emerging artists have each been commissioned to develop their own new projects that will culminate in solo exhibitions as well as to post research and work in process on the Gallery‚Äôs website. 

Kylie Fineday is a multi-disciplinary Cree artist from Sweetgrass First Nation, SK. Her art practice focuses on themes of identity and family, as well as addressing social issues and injustices, particularly those affecting Indigenous people in Canada. She recently completed her BFA at the University of Lethbridge with great distinction and is the 2020 recipient of the Faculty of Fine Arts Gold Medal. She has exhibited her work in various institutions in Lethbridge, Alberta, and has also worked on various curatorial projects within the community.

Angeline Simon is a multidisciplinary artist from Lethbridge, Alberta. She graduated from the University of Lethbridge in 2018 with a BFA in Art Studio. As a second generation Eurasian Canadian, Simon explores familial narratives and the dynamics within contrasting cultures. Her work has been exhibited at galleries and institutions including Contemporary Calgary, Southern Alberta Art Gallery, Casa Lethbridge, Trianon Gallery, and the University of Lethbridge Dr. Foster James Penny Building.
