About Luanne Martineau

Luanne Martineau is an Associate Professor of Painting + Drawing at Concordia University, Montreal, whose research practice explores the social stratification of artistic production and the “naturalized” fissures between art genres, engaging a long tradition of satire and critique within contemporary art. Interconnecting processes of craft with the suppressed narratives of the artisan within minimalist and post-minimalist “deskilled” materiality, Martineau’s research pursues the conflation of method, style and ideology within artistic manufacture. In 2009 was a finalist for the Sobey Art Award.
