John Monteith consistently works across mediums, pushing and expanding rigid disciplinary boundaries whether through photography, painting, drawing, fibre-based practices, or curation and collaborative initiatives, while prioritizing a practice that considers conceptual, material, and aesthetic concerns equally. Informed by cities that bear a diverse history of the built form in their articulation of spatial dynamics and representational politics, Monteith’s practice draws on issues of identity, memory, and history. Monteith has exhibited at the 7th Beijing Biennale, the Tate Modern, the Taipei Contemporary Art Center, the Schinkel Pavillon (Berlin), X Initiative (New York), and Sàn Art (Ho Chi Minh City). He has held residencies at CAT Cologne (Germany), Kunsthalle Roveredo (Switzerland), and I Project Space (Beijing). Reviews and texts written about his work have been included in Mousse Magazine, Canadian Art, Art in America, Charley, C Magazine, October, K-48, Petit Mort: Recollections of a Queer Public, the New Yorker and others.
