Monique Moumblow

Monique Moumblow was born in Hamilton, Ontario and received a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design in 1992 and an MFA from Concordia University in 2005. Initially, she was primarily interested in performance and worked collaboratively with Anne Russell. This collaboration led to a video titled “Liabilities”. In 1993, Moumblow moved to Montréal where she began to focus on single-channel video. Her tapes have been screened at festivals and galleries in North America and Europe, including the Centre d’art contemporaine de Basse Normandie, the Festival international du court-metrage (Clermont Ferrand), Impakt (Utrecht), and The International Short Film and Video Festival (Oberhausen). Her videos have been awarded prizes at Cinematexas, The Images Festival (Toronto) and L’immagine Leggera (Palermo) and are included in the collections of the National Gallery of Canada and the Netherlands Media Art Institute. Moumblow has been actively involved with various artist-run centres in Montréal and was co-founder of Sugar Press. She teaches Video Production at Concordia University.
