Rémi Belliveau is an Acadian trans non-binary interdisciplinary artist and musician hailing from Memramcook, New Brunswick, a village located in Mi’kma’ki, the traditional unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people.
Their work attempts to deconstruct and reprogram the foundational, structural, and imaginary principles of the Acadian culture to which they belong in the hopes of cultivating capacities for (self)analysis and critical thinking.
Since 2012, their work has been exhibited in events and group shows including Instrumental Stories (curator: Véronique LeBlanc, 2019) at the University of Moncton’s Galerie d’art Louise-et-Reuben-Cohen, Art in the Open 2017 (Charlottetown, PEI) and Writing Topography (curator: Corrina Ghaznavi, 2015) at the Beaverbrook Art Gallery (NB).
In 2020, la Galerie de l’UQAM (Montreal) presented their MFA graduate show Yesterday Seems So Far Away. The year prior, their first solo show, Dissonances rurales, was presented at the Galerie d’art Louise-et-Reuben-Cohen under de direction of Nisk Imbeault.
As an arts professional, Rémi has also co-directed Moncton’s Galerie Sans Nom with Annie France Noël (2014 to 2018), has assumed the role of (co)curator in two retrospectives (2015, 2018), has taught as a sessional at the Université de Moncton (2017), and has published in Canadian Art magazine.
In 2021, they were nominated Atlantic finalist for the Sobey Art Award and showed their work at the National Gallery of Canada (curator: Josée Drouin-Brisebois).
