John Monteith is an interdisciplinary artist working across drawing, painting, photography, textiles and installation. His highly formalist works interpret the fluidity of urban space as contingent and constructed, referencing issues of identity, temporality, ephemerality and indexicality. Monteith has exhibited at the Tate Modern (London), the Schinkel Pavillon (Berlin), the Taipei Contemporary Art Center (Taiwan) and the 7th Beijing Biennale . Residencies include CAT in 2011 (Cologne, Germany), Kunsthalle Roveredo in 2014 (Switzerland) and I: Project Space in 2018 (Beijing). Reviews and essays dedicated to his work have been included in Mousse Magazine, Canadian Art, Art in America, Charley, C Magazine, Petit Mort: Recollections of a Queer Public, The New Yorker, and others.
