About the Author

Michelle Jacques

Michelle Jacques is the Head of Exhibitions and Collections/Chief Curator at Remai Modern, Saskatoon. Recent and upcoming projects at Remai Modern include Ken Lum: Death and Furniture (2022) and Denyse Thomasos: just beyond, both co-organized with the Art Gallery of Ontario, and The Middle of Everywhere, an exploration of the art of the Great Plains collaboratively developed by the Remai Modern curatorial team. Previously, she was Chief Curator at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria (AGGV), where she was responsible for guiding a curatorial and education program linking contemporary practices, ideas, and issues to the gallery’s historical collections and legacies. At the AGGV, she facilitated projects with a range of contemporary artists; co-curated major retrospectives of the work of Anna Banana and Jock Macdonald; and developed a series of installations that used the AGGV’s collection to evoke cross-temporal and cross-cultural conversations. Before moving west, she held roles in the Contemporary and Canadian departments of the Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto; was the Director of Programming at the Centre for Art Tapes in Halifax; and taught courses in writing, art history, and curatorial studies at NSCAD University, University of Toronto Mississauga, and OCAD University. She is currently the Vice-President of Inclusion and Outreach with the Association of Art Museum Curators.
