Krista Belle Stewart is known for her ability to draw out the complexities of archival material that allow for both intimacy, coincidence, and the meeting of histories across time. Working with video, photography, design, ephemera, textiles and audio, Stewart engages the gaps found between personal narratives and institutional histories. Her work has been exhibited at the Independent Studio and Curatorial Program, New York; Vancouver Art Gallery; Presentation House Gallery, North Vancouver; Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver; Mercer Union, Toronto; and the Esker Foundation, Calgary. Stewart holds an MFA from Bard College, New York. She is a member of the Upper Nicola Band of the Okanagan Nation and is currently based in Vancouver. As a recent recipient of the British Columbia Art Council’s mentorship award, Stewart is working with T’uy’tanat-Cease Wyss and Brian Jungen to lead her in a process of decolonizing her education.
