About & Contact

Deborah Edmeades’ practice ranges between performance, the lens, object-making, and drawing, and has continued at times outside of an artistic context into therapeutic and esoteric experiments. Most recently she is focused on the histories of the feminine struggle for spiritual authority and its relationship to contemporary New Age religion.

Edmeades has shown her work recently in New York (Participant Inc. and Pratt Manhattan Gallery), Vancouver (the Western Front, Artspeak), Toronto (SPACE Mercer Union), Regina (Dunlop Art Gallery), and Guelph (Guelph Art Gallery). She was a resident in 2018 in the media program at the Western Front in Vancouver, and in 2017 at the International Studio and Curatorial Program in New York. She has received grants from Franklin Furnace, Canada Council for the Arts and the BC Arts Council. In 2000, she was a visiting artist and guest lecturer of performance art at the University of Texas at Austin.
