Brian Rideout makes pictures about pictures. His work investigates contemporary images, sourced from print and online, for their art historical relevance and as a continuation of the history of painting and image production. It also demonstrates an interest in art as document, as decoration, as ideological accessory, as technological or functional support. Recent solo exhibitions include AC Repair Co. (Toronto), MKG127 (Toronto), Parisian Laundry (Montréal) and the Georgian College Helen and Arch Brown Centre for Design and Visual Arts (Barrie). Recently, Rideout has shown his work internationally at Untitled MIAMI (Miami), Spring/Break Art Fair (NYC) and Unkempt at MAW (NYC). In 2017, Rideout was a recipient of the Ontario Arts Council’s Premier’s Awards for Excellence in the Arts.
