Based in Montréal, Nadia Myre is a nationally renowned Algonquin interdisciplinary artist and a member of the Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation. As exemplified by seminal works Indian Act, 2002, and The Scar Project, 2005–2013, her art explores the politics of belonging by positioning it within a framework of Indigenous resistance and resilience. Myre has an extensive exhibition history including, most recently: Volume 0 (Zuecca Project, Venice, 2019), Balancing Acts (Textile Museum, Toronto, 2019), Show Me Your Wound (Dom Museum, Vienna, 2018–2019), Code Switching and Other Work (The Briggait, Glasgow International, 2018) and Tout ce qui reste/Scattered Remains (Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, 2017–2018). Her work can be found in the Canadian embassies in London, Paris and Athens, as well as the consulate in New York. Nadia Myre is the recipient of many distinctions and awards, notably the 2014 Sobey Art Award for Canadian artists under 40, and in 2019 she was inducted into the Ordre des arts et des lettres du Québec.
