Dominique Rey is a multidisciplinary artist whose practice includes video, performance, painting, collage, sculpture, and photography. Her work delves into peripheral subjectivities, from individuals and groups of people on the margins of dominant culture, to performance-based works that mine the terrain of the unconscious. She is interested in examining the outsider within society, as well as a deep sense of being we have of being strangers to ourselves. For this reason, she utilizes modes of fragmentation to explore the construction of self, as it relates to current experiences of dislocation and disorientation.

Dominique Rey’s work has been exhibited across Canada, the United States, and Europe, including MOCCA (Toronto), Remai Modern (Saskatoon), MacLaren Art Centre (Barrie), Plug In ICA (Winnipeg), Gallery TPW (Toronto), Southern Alberta Art Gallery (Lethbridge), Centre Clark (Montreal), Tabacka Art Center (Kosice, Slovakia), Galleri Box (Goteborg, Sweden), and Art Center/South Florida (Miami Beach). Rey is the recipient of numerous awards and honours, including the Canada Council for the Arts, the Manitoba Arts Council, the Winnipeg Arts Council, the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation, and La Fondation Ricard. Her work has been reviewed in the Globe & Mail, Border Crossings, Frieze, Canadian Art, Black Flash Magazine, Flare, and the Winnipeg Free Press. She holds a MFA in Photography from Bard College (NY) and a MFA in New Media from the Transart Institute (Berlin). Her art appears in numerous collections, including the National Gallery of Canada, Winnipeg Art Gallery, Province of Manitoba, and Scotiabank. Dominique Rey was awarded the Canada Council for the Arts International Artist Residency in 2016 at La Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris.
