J A C L Y N Q U A R E S M A is a third-generation Portuguese Canadian artist and curator with PCS. Her work in both fields explores the tension between the survival of the environment as we know it and our survival in the mediated environments we create for ourselves. Central to her environmental explorations is an interest in non-dominant, multigenerational structures of learning and sharing. Much of her exhibitions engage the traditional art audience along with children and youth directly in the design of the exhibition. She is a recent graduate of the Masters of Visual Studies: Curatorial Program at the Daniels Faculty of Architecture, Landscape, and Design, University of Toronto. She has worked with the Fabulous Festival of Fringe Film, Durham Art Gallery, Art Museum at the University of Toronto, Doris McCarthy Gallery at University of Toronto Scarborough, Images Festival, Peter MacKendrick Gallery, 47, Scotia Bank Nuit Blanche, Blackwood Gallery and Justina M. Barnicke Gallery. Jaclyn was once the co-director of the exhibition space 47 in Parkdale, Toronto. She currently lives rurally in Kimberely, Ontario in the traditional land of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, which is represented by the communities of Saugeen First Nation and Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation as well as the Métis Nation of Ontario, whose history and people are well represented in Bruce and Grey Counties.
