A multi-disciplinary artist born in Rome in 1967, Massimo Guerrera lives and works in Montreal. He has participated in many exhibitions and collective events, including Artifices I in 1996, Artifices II and le Salon de l’agglomérat in 1998, as well as Le Biennale de Montréal 2000. In 1998, he presented various individual exhibitions and a series of “performance actions” working at the intersection between public and private space. He also twice organized the Porus exhibition, first at the Galerie Leonard & Bina Ellen in 1999, then at the Centre Skol in 2001. Massimo Guerrera has received grants from the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec many times and his work is included in the collections of the Canada Council Art Bank, of the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec and in private collections. He has won the Ozias Leduc award (2001) and the Louis-Comtois (2008), and was a finalist for the Sobey’s Prize For The Arts (2004). Developing spaces for meetings and exchanges, Massiom Guerrera fits into a practice of performance art that can be qualified as relational, based on the possibilities offered by the experience of the body and food, and the thoughts that are kindled by our consumerist era. Interpersonal exchanges as well as the circulation of food gives the artist fertile territory for exploration, strongly coloured by the modern preoccupations of the singular experience of the quotidian.
