Portrait of Chantal Khoury

Chantal Khoury's practice is framed by transnational art histories, diaspora discourses, and methodical techniques. She leans into abstraction by refusing strict definitions, using disorientation to resurrect motifs and ahistorical forms of diaspora experience. Of Lebanese descent and born on the unceded territory of the Wolastoqiyik and Mi'kmaq First Nations (New Brunswick), she lived in Tiohtia:ke (Montreal) from 2006 until she relocated to Ontario in 2019. Key exhibitions include: Birch Contemporary (2021), the Beaverbrook Art Gallery (2020), the Orillia Museum of Art and History (2017). Her work is included in the collections of the Royal Bank of Canada, the Art Gallery of Guelph, and the University of New Brunswick, as well as private collections across North America and Lebanon.
