Manuel Mathieu

Manuel Mathieu (b. 1986) is a multi-disciplinary artist, working with painting, ceramics, film and installation. 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. His art investigates themes of historical violence, erasure, resilience and cultural approaches to physicality, nature and spiritual legacy.

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), K11 (Shanghai) and the Longlati Foundation (Beijing). The Museum of Contemporary Art North Miami and the Max Ernst Museum (Brühl) will present solo exhibitions by Mathieu in 2024 and 2025. He received the Best Short Film Award at the 2023 Festival International des Films sur l’Art.
