Shary Boyle works across diverse media, including ceramics, sculpture, painting, installation and drawing. She maintains a dual practice alternating between her studio and collaborative touring of projection/sound performance projects.

Shary Boyle’s fantastical and frightening characters are indeterminately human and animal, male and female, young and old. Together they comprise a cast that acts out Boyle’s scenes exploring class and gender injustice, vulnerability, relationships, and sexuality. While she works in multiple mediums, Boyle is best known for her porcelain figurines, light-based installations, and performances. Boyle has also collaborated with several musicians for her performances, including Peaches and Feist.

She represented Canada at the Venice Biennale in 2013. Her work is included in many public and private collections, including The National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa, The Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Giverny Capital, Montreal Collection, The Art Gallery of Nova Scotia, Halifax, Musee d'art contemporain de Montreal, The Bailey Collection, ON/NYC, The Art Gallery of Ontario, Toronto, and la Maison Rouge, Paris.

Presented by the Department of Transmedia. Free and open to the University community. Follow the colloquium on Facebook.
