Christophe Barbeau is an artist and exposition curator. He obtained a Masters in Visual Studies and Curatorial Studies from the University of Toronto and holds a Bachelors in Visual Arts from Université Laval (Quebec). These past few years, he has worked on the notions of curation, on installations as a medium, and on the structure of exhibits through different re-appropriation and re-actualization strategies such as: copy, repetition, and facsimile. His present research investigates the relationship between artists and curators, aiming through a conversation with authorial intent to develop an understanding of all of its political dimensions.
