Paul Lofeodo (1994, Toronto) is a multidisciplinary artist and writer working mainly with photography and sculpture. Informed by dramaturgical, psychoanalytic and marxist perspectives, Lofeodo explores the constitution of identity and performativity, normativity and hegemony, embodiment and the metaphysics of presence. Lofeodo lives and works in Montréal, where he received his Bachelor of Fine Arts with a minor in Sociology from Concordia University.

The work of Luc Paradis moves in and out of various media at a rhythmic and steady pace. This multifaceted practice includes painting, sculpture and drawing. Collage serves as a guiding principle, appearing both as individual works and as the preface to the assemblage and installation of the various elements of his oeuvre. Paradis’ interest in collage suggests the Bauhausian axiom of the total work of art—where design, craft and fine art meet and the distinctions between various creative endeavours are blurred. Paradis has become increasingly invested in abstraction and a movement away from representation into a realm of non-serial and non-linear aesthetics. His pronounced attention to the process of making and a long view of the work he produces bestows his practice with its own sense of totality. Paradis currently resides in Montréal and is an influential figure in this vibrant artistic community. He has presented solo exhibitions at l’Œil de poisson, Québec, and he was represented by Parisian Laundry in Montréal for over ten years. He has collaborated with musicians from across North America to produce album artwork and poster design. Paradis was a participant in the 27th symposium of Contemporary Art in Baie St. Paul, The Récollets in Paris, France, NARS Foundation in Brooklyn, Banff Centre for the arts residency and was asked to participate in the prestigious Canadian Art Foundation auction in 2013. His work is found in various private collections as well as the public collection of the Collection Prêt d’œuvres d’art of the Musée National des beaux-arts du Québec.

Josée Schryer grew up in the Lower Laurentians, at the borders of Québec and Ontario, and shares her time between Montréal and Grenville-sur-la-Rouge. She holds a BA in Photography and Art History from Concordia University and won the Gabor Szilasi award. She completed her MA in Photography at Hartford University (Connecticut) in a program emphasizing the importance of the ‘photobook.’ She completed her MA thesis “sur-la-Rouge” under the supervision of Jörg Colberg, for which she won the Mary Frey prize. Praised for its content, its voice and design, the 1st edition (auto-edited) sold out quickly and was printed as a 2nd edition in Berlin in 2016 by Peperoni Books. Josée Schryer is co-founder of the Photobook Club in Montréal. Her work has been exhibited internationally and included in many web publications. Schryer is interested in the notions of territory, culture, tradition, folklore and storytelling. She has a curiosity for the attachment felt towards being born or moving into a living space. She is certain that these living spaces greatly influence people and communities' identities. Through photography, she finds the perfect language to narrate and share her observations while working on projects that preserve an intimate personal narrative.

Tyra Maria Trono is a Filipinx artist and cultural worker based in Tiohtià:ke/Montréal. She holds a BFA in Photography from Concordia University.
