Louis-Charles Dionne is a Canadian artist and educator based in Tiohtià:ke/Montréal (QC) and K’jipuktuk/Halifax (NS). His work has been presented across Canada in various venues and ephemeral public art events. He holds a bachelor's degree in sculpture and art history from Concordia University (2017), a master's degree in fine and media arts from NSCAD University (2020), as well as a graduate diploma in post-secondary education from UQÀM (2018). He is recipient of the Joseph-Armand-Bombardier Masters Scholarship Award, the Robert Pope Graduate Award, the Alfred Pinsky Medal and the Betty Goodwin Prize in Studio Arts.
Dionne’s practice is anchored in sculpture, installation and public art. His work is rooted in a vocabulary of low-interest objects that he repositions to challenge notions of function, affordance, and value. It is the non-heroic and anti-climactic experience that Dionne is interested in.
Dionne is currently a sessional faculty in Art History and Contemporary Culture (Art Education) at NSCAD University, and a part-time faculty in Sculpture (Fine Arts) at Concordia University.
