We are pleased to announce representation of Quebec photo-based artist THOMAS KNEUBÜHLER. Kneubühler’s professional practice often deals with social issues and how technology affects people’s lives. Whether in the ambiguous boundaries of public and private space, the all-pervasive spectre of security surveillance, or even the radiant, if dehumanizing, beauty of cityscapes, his practice identifies the co-existing insecurities, uncertainties, and subtle pleasures embedded in the structures of modern life.
Kneubühler's work has been presented in numerous international exhibitions in Montreal, Toronto, New York, Basel, The Netherlands, Germany, and China. He was recently seen in the Québec Triennial 2011 at le Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal. His work has also been seen in Le Mois de la Photo à Montréal 2007, Gallery 44, Axenéo7, Skol, Platform, and the Noorderlicht Photofestival. Numerous Canadian and international collections include: Basler Kunstkredit, Canada Council Art Bank, Canton of Solothurn, Musée National des Beaux-Arts du Québec, Concordia University, Conseil des Arts de Montréal, Foreign Affairs and International Trade Canada, Kunstsammlung Basel-Landschaft, and RBC Royal Bank of Canada. In March 2012, Patrick Mikhail Gallery presented works from Kneubühler’s “Under Currents” series as part of the gallery’s participation in The Armory Show in New York. In 2011, he was awarded the prestigious Pratt & Whitney Canada Prize of the Conseil des arts de Montréal. In June 2012 as part of Art Basel, Kneubühler appears as a finalist in the Swiss Art Awards, one of Switzerland’s most renowned arts awards. In November 2012, Kneubühler will be exhibiting at Le Centre Culturel Canadien in Paris as part of Le Mois de la Photo à Paris. In 2003, Thomas Kneubühler earned a Master’s Degree in Studio Arts from Montreal’s Concordia University.
