Caroline Monnet is a multidisciplinary artist from Outaouais based in Montreal. She studied Sociology and Communications at the University of Ottawa and at the University of Granada (Spain) before pursuing a prolific career in visual arts and films. Her short films got her many nominations and prizes in several international film festivals. In visual arts, she has exhibited her work in solo and group exhibitions in institutions such as Arsenal Art Contemporain, Musée McCord and Musée d'art contemporain in Montréal, at Axenéo7 in Gatineau, Walter Phillips Gallery in Banff, the Winnipeg Art Gallery and at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris.
Monnet uses visual and media arts to demonstrate a keen interest in communicating complex ideas around Indigenous identity and bicultural living through the examination of cultural histories. Her work is often minimalistic while emotionally charged and speaks to the beautifully intricate reality of indigenous peoples today. Monnet has made a signature for working with industrial materials, combining the vocabulary of popular and traditional visual-cultures with the tropes of modernist abstraction to create unique hybrid forms. Monnet is always in the stage on experimentation and invention, both for herself and for the work.
