Associate Professor Brian Boigon is participating in the 12th edition of the Papier Contemporary Art Fair, which takes place April 25 to 28 in Montreal. Organized by the Contemporary Art Galleries Association (AGAC), Papier welcomes 46 major Canadian galleries at the Port of Montreal’s Grand Quay. Boigon is among the artists presented by Christie Contemporary, a Toronto-based gallery participating in the fair. His work, The Interopera, launched a Christie Contemporary in 2017.
A design theorist, artist, art director, writer and researcher, Boigon's main area of creative practice is in the field of science fiction and locomotive design. Originally trained as an architect, he has been involved with digital and pop up productions since 1994 when he was featured in WIRED magazine for the design of the first tween-based virtual avatar town called Spillville.
