Kim Waldron is a Montreal-based visual artist. Her art practice frequently uses self-portraiture as a means of engaging with various contemporary social situations. Over the years she has questioned the role of images and the importance of context as discourse. The conceptual framework of her photographic series is based on the boundary that defines reality and fiction. Not only is self-representation an integral component of her work, the contexts that she uses to create these narratives is equally important.

 

Active in the local, national, and international scene, most recently she has exhibited work at Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, CIRCA art actuel (Montreal), Jimei X Arles International Photography Festival (Xiamen), Mains d’Œuvres (Paris), Ortega y Gasset Projects (NYC) and Dunlop Art Gallery (Regina). She has an MFA from Concordia University and a BFA from NSCAD University. She has been awarded artist residencies in Paris, Vienna, Newfoundland, Xiamen and Beijing. She was the recipient of the Claudine and Stephen Bronfman Fellowship in Contemporary Art and the Pierre-Ayot Award in 2013.
