Vitória Monteiro (aka Veto): President
Vitória Monteiro is an artist who explores the intricacies of language abstraction, and the reprocessing of information. Monteiro uses the mediums of papermaking, sculpture, and performance to navigate the various realms that knowledge inhabits. Their works embody themes of dislocation, translation, indexicality, and citation, rooted in reflections of being neurodivergent. With a subtle undertone of satire, they strive to locate themselves within these spaces. Monteiro holds a BFA in Visual Arts from Simon Fraser University and is the Acting Curator of Learning and Engagement at the Contemporary Art Gallery.
