The White Columns Curated Artist Registry
is an online platform for emerging and under-recognized artists to share images and information about their respective practices. The Registry seeks to create a context for artists who have yet to benefit from wider critical, curatorial or commercial support. To be eligible, artists cannot be affiliated with a commercial gallery in New York City.

STATEMENT OF WORK
B. 1987 in Gatineau, Guillaume Adjutor Provost works and lives in Montreal, Canada. He is an interdisciplinary artist and educator working across a variety of media, including sculpture, installation, textile, performance, collaborative structures and poetry. He holds a Ph.D. in Arts Studies and Practices from the Université du Québec à Montréal where he wrote a thesis on the notion of curatorial art, namely the use of curatorial approaches as a mode of creation and of collaboration between practices. Thus, he fully considers the exhibition as a space for experimentation, critical reflection and self-determination. His projects fuse various sources together, trying to tap into social unconsciousness and forming new narratives. He is interested in exploring the periphery of what makes history: the counterculture, personal archives, queer experiences, Quebec vernacular imagery, and science fiction. Recipients of grants from the Quebec Council for the Arts, the Canada Council for the Arts, and the Claudine and Stephen Bronfman scholarship, Guillaume Adjutor was a finalist for the Pierre-Ayot Prize of the city of Montreal in 2016, his projects have been presented in individual and collective exhibitions, including at the Darling Foundry, Montreal (2019), Galerie Hugues Charbonneau, Montreal (2019), Bikini, Lyon (2018), Diagonale, Montreal (2017), Bolit Centre Art Contemporani, Girona, Catalunya (2017), Centre Clark, Montreal (2016), Galerie de la rue des Étables, Bordeaux (2015), Christoph Merian Foundation, Basel, Switzerland (2015), Ve.Sch, Vienna, Austria (2014), le Couvent des Récollets, Paris (2012).
