Guy Laramée is a multidisciplinary artist whose work includes theatre staging and directing, video, sculpture, installation, painting, literature, musical composition and the design and construction of original instruments. He holds a BA in interdisciplinary studies (2000) and an MA in anthropology from Concordia University (2002), as well as an MFA in visual and media arts from the Université du Québec à Montréal (2004). Laramée founded the music ensemble TUYO and was awarded the Canada Council for the Arts’ Joseph S. Stauffer Prize in 1989 for his musical compositions. He received national and international recognition for his BIBLIOS project and has works in leading private and public collections in Quebec. His extensive bibliography reflects the harmony and consistency of an artist who does away with the traditional boundaries in art to create fundamentally humane, poetic works in collaboration with people from various disciplines.
