Maya Beaudry (b. 1988 Vancouver) is interested in interiority, domestic architecture, upholstery, unwanted growth, ghosts, membranes, boundaries, patchwork, ornament, rectangles, corners, containers, fiction, her mother’s murder and the number 53. Recent exhibitions include “Clothing Optional” at Night Gallery in Los Angeles, “Period Pieces: A Sunset Terrace Retrospective” at Projet Pangee in Montreal, and “Ambivalent Pleasures” at the Vancouver Art Gallery. She received a BFA in 2013 from Emily Carr University and an MFA in 2017 from the California Institute of the Arts. She is the recipient of the Felix Gonzales Torres Grant, the Hnatyshyn Foundation Prize for Emerging Artists, and is the founder of Sunset Terrace, an artist-run space in Vancouver. She is currently in residence at Triangle France in Marseille.
Studio Sunday is conceived as an intimate setting for an evening of exchange, in which to share ideas, discuss themes in contemporary art, and encourage mutual familiarity between the many artists and thinkers working in Berlin. The semi-privacy of ateliers, amongst various works in progress, provides an intimate setting for dialogue and a casual yet critical environment for productive sharing. The collaborative reading and discussion is in keeping with the community based and non-authoritative ethos of the series.
