Biography

Matthew Thomson obtained an MFA from Concordia University in 2013, and is currently enrolled in the Bachelors of Art Education program at Concordia University. Matthew had his first solo show in 2012 at the Flea Market Gallery in St. Catharines, ON. His work has been exhibited in numerous juried group exhibitions in Montréal (notably at the  FOFA Gallery, the Darling Foundry and the Maison de la Culture Frontenac) and at the Centre d’exposition de Val-David. He presented EVOLUTION/REVOLUTION, a video installation with a stop-motion animation,in the Eaton Centre during Art Souterrain 2013, and in 2014, the piece was chosen for the 4th International Random Film Festival. Thomson teaches at the Visual Arts Centre (Westmount, QC) and to high school students in Montreal.

Artistic project

Five Crucial Tips to Outrun Marina Abramovic is an exhibition of interactive works curated by Olivier Forgues, in collaboration with Art Souterrain.  Nine multidisciplinary artists move from leisure to idleness and offer you the results - some of the art is edible, and that’s a perk. Virtuoso, slackers: can they work together? Tongue-in-cheek, engrossing, and above all interactive, these new works blur the boundary between artist and audience, the academy and play. From the everyday to the uncanny, expect digital trompe-l’oeil, celebrity lookalikes, inflatables, and (impeccably tasteful) genitalia.
