Toni Latour is an East Vancouver queer feminist artist. She works in photography, installation, text-based practices, drawing, video, sound, public and performance art. Latour received her BFA from the University of Windsor in 1998 and her MFA from the University of Western Ontario in 2000.
Since 1994 she has exhibited her work nationally and internationally in both solo and group shows and has received numerous grants and awards in support of her practice.
Latour’s work is included in many catalogues and publications and is held in private and public collections, including the National Portrait Gallery of Canada, the Surrey Art Gallery, and the Vancouver Biennale.
Toni Latour is a two-time Vancouver Biennale participant. Her 2009-11 public art installation Homage to Parenthood can be seen on the Canada Line in Richmond, BC, and she has recently completed a new Biennale work that was supported by grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and Kwantlen University. The piece is a 30-foot wide neon sign that reads: let’s heal the divide. It can be seen on the facade of the Vancouver Community College until Summer 2016.
Latour teaches New Media, Drawing and Digital Photography at the University of the Fraser Valley.
