Lili Huston-Herterich | Biography

Lili Huston-Herterich is a Toronto-based artist with a background in photography and a practice currently rooted in multidisciplinary installation. The artist routinely employs anti-hierarchical methods of art-making; integrating craft practices, staging participatory events, and using utilitarian objects to engage bodies that share the same space. Recent exhibitions include We of the Middling Sort at Zalucky Contemporary (2017), Babble On at Rockaway Topless, NY (2016), Soft Rug & A Chirping Bird at AC Repair Co., Toronto (2016), The Mouth that Holds the Tongue at The Power Plant, Toronto (2015), and Several Swallowing Egg Sounds at Peregrine Program, Chicago (2015). She is currently working on a digital archive project Chroma Lives with design historian Erin Alexa Freedman that was previously supported as a Performance-In-Residence with Amsterdam-based organization If I Can't Dance, I Don't Want To Be Part Of Your Revolution (2015-2016), as well as the Toronto Friends of the Visual Arts (2016). This past summer, she exhibited at MAW Gallery (New York), and participated in Access Gallery's 23 Days At Sea residency on a freight ship, travelling from Vancouver to Shanghai across the Pacific Ocean. The artist received her BFA from York University in 2010 and will commence graduate studies at the Piet Zwart Institute in Rotterdam in September 2017.
