Jamie Q is a Canadian artist who makes paintings, drawings, zines, prints, sculptures, and textile pieces. They have shown their art and distributed their zines internationally, including notable group shows at Krets Gallery in Sweden, the Luggage Store Annex in San Francisco, and Museum London in Ontario; and solo exhibitions at DNA Artspace in London, L'APPÂT in Brussels, Art Metropole in Toronto, and Parentheses Gallery & Art Projects in Halifax.
Jamie Q holds a BFA from the Alberta College of Art & Design (2002) and an MFA from Western University (2010). Their MFA research focused on the politics and aesthetics of the do-it-yourself ethic, as well as the social potential of art objects and DIY distribution strategies. Their most recent projects work through ideas around arts economies and value, gender and queerness, craft and repurposed materials, and process-based play. These ideas occasionally intersect in different ways, but not usually all at the same time.
