Michel de Broin

Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ) Residency

Michel de Broin is a Canadian sculptor based in Montreal. His approach to production explores the intersections between technological, biological, and physical systems. His pratice centres on the paradoxical refunctionalization of utilitarian objects, mechanical devices, architecture and urban infrastructure.

Michel has created numerous public artworks in Canada and Europe, including the Salvador Allende monument in Montreal. His work has been exhibited at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal; the Musée d’art contemporain du Val-de-Marne; France; the Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin; the Plug-In Institute of Contemporary Art, Winnipeg; the Museum Tinguely, Basel; the Centre d’art Villa Arson, Nice; at Eyebeam, New York; and at the Hessel Museum of Art, New York. He is represented by the Galerie Division, Montreal.

Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec (CALQ)

In 2008-2009, in partnership with Québec's Ministry of Culture and Communications and the Ministry of International Relations and the Francophonie, and on the recommendation of Arts Council England, Conseil des arts et des lettres (CALQ) approached Acme to establish the Québec Studio in London, thereby expanding the network of residencies offered abroad to Québec artists and writers. The residency provides two six month long residencies per year in Bow, E3 for artists who have at least 10 years' experience of professional practice. Applications and selection are undertaken directly by CALQ.
