Dawn Matheson is a video artist and writer living in Guelph, Ontario. She is an alumni of the University of Toronto School of English Drama, and University of Guelph’s theatre stage management. Currently, she manages a video lab at the University of Guelph which researches the ways in which arts-based practices can create opportunities for communities marginalized by misconceptions of difference and disability (projectrevision.ca). She also works as a video producer for the International Institute of Critical Studies in Improvisation. Dawn’s artistic practice seeks to interrupt civic and social spaces with unexpected moments of beauty, curiosity and joy. Her relational performances and interventions hope to offer moments of exuberance and liberation from everyday suffering and to dismantle the barriers between individuals. Dawn creates site-specific sound, video and performance pieces that have been installed in galleries and public spaces across the country.
