Artissima

Claire Milbrath

For Artissima 2018, Steve Turner is pleased to present a solo exhibition of new drawings by Montreal-based Claire Milbrath in the Disegni section which is being curated for the second consecutive year by Luís Silva and João Mourão, co-directors of Kunsthalle Lissabon. Milbrath’s drawings depict a character that she calls “Poor Gray”, an aimless, wealthy, melancholy gay man. In so doing, Milbrath questions traditional concepts of masculinity by depicting Gray as vulnerable, effeminate and idle. Claire Milbrath (born 1989, Victoria, British Columbia) earned a BA in History from Concordia University. She had two solo exhibitions at Steve Turner in 2017 and also is the founding publisher and editor-in-chief of The Editorial Magazine, a print journal on contemporary art.
