Montreal, Quebec & Halifax, Nova Scotia
Lorraine Albert is an interdisciplinary artist and designer whose practice is rooted in conceptual ideation and lateral thinking, where notions of space (place), body (movement), and time (pace) converge. She has a degree in Graphic Design (Dawson College), a Bachelor of Fine Art (Concordia University) and a Masters of Fine Art (Nova Scotia College of Art and Design University). During her time at NSCAD, Lorraine sat on the MFA Committee where she reworked University policy to improve course diversity for Graduates, and set a precedent with her role as a Graduate peer mentor. In 2017, Lorraine presented a paper on alternative pedagogical strategies at the Universities Art Association of Canada (UAAC) conference in Banff, Alberta and was a panelist at the Canadian Association of Fine Arts Deans (CAFAD) conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Her choreographic work and visual art have appeared in various festivals and galleries in Canada.
