Manuel Mathieu

Manuel Mathieu (b. 1986) is a multi-disciplinary artist, working with painting, ceramics, film and installation. His art investigates themes of historical violence, erasure and cultural approaches to physicality, nature and spiritual legacy. Mathieu’s interests are partially informed from his upbringing in Haiti – just after the fall of the Duvalier dictatorship – and his experience emigrating to Montréal at the age of 19.

He obtained an MFA Degree from Goldsmiths, University of London. He had solo exhibitions at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, the Power Plant (Toronto) and the Longlati Foundation (Beijing). He will soon open an exhibition at K11 (Shanghai). The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami and the Max Ernst Museum (Brühl) will present exhibitions by Mathieu in 2024 and 2025. He received the Best Short Film Award at the 2023 Festival International des Films sur l’Art.
