Aimée Henny Brown is an artist and educator of settler ancestry. She completed her BFA at the University of Alberta and obtained her Master’s in Fine and Media Arts at NSCAD University. Aimée’s artistic practice engages archives, research, and printed matter to question historical content within her contemporary art practice.
Her practice addresses both the history and fate of printed matter as tangible elements in a virtual era. One of the fundamental questions of her practice lies between discussions of the everyday and the spectacular: “How will we survive the present and what could the future look like?”
She has received several awards and grants, notably the Joseph Beuys Scholarship for Artistic Merit and several Canada Council Production Grants. Her collages, drawings, performances and bookworks have been presented nationally and internationally, with group shows in Kyoto, Germany, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, and solo exhibitions across Canada.
Aimée is an Assistant Professor with the University of the Fraser Valley.
