Carol Wainio has exhibited nationally including at the Art Gallery of Ontario, Musée des beaux arts de Montréal, Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, National Gallery of Canada, Glenbow Museum, and internationally at the Venice Biennale, Galleria Comunale d’Arte Moderna Bologna, Stedelijk Museum, and Beijing Biennale.  Her paintings are held in major public, corporate, and private collections. She completed an MFA at Concordia University and has held academic positions at the University of Ottawa and Concordia University. She is the recipient of numerous grants and awards, including the 2014 Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts. Represented by Paul Petro Contemporary Art and Trepanier Baer Gallery, her work draws together diverse visual and cultural references in a discursive approach that is also visceral and painterly, creating structures for wondering about representation, history and narrative within the current physical and cultural climate. She lives and works in Ottawa and Montréal.
