Working between site-specific installations, interactive structures and curatorial projects, Allard investigates archival documents with an interest for historiography, institutional contexts and the political dimension of our personal life. He completed an MFA in Visual Arts at the University of British Columbia and a BA in Communication Studies at Concordia University.

Their research focuses on emerging trends of techno-utopianism and ethnofuturisms in contemporary art. They attended Emily Carr University of Art + Design and the University of British Columbia for their undergraduate, and are currently completing an MA in Art History at McGill University. Lindsey Wilson is a multidisciplinary artist. Her work engages with themes of embodiment, queerness, and interconnectivity at the intersection of craft, art, and science.
