Visual artist Daphne Boyer celebrates her Métis heritage with exhibition “Fa…que” – The Link – Concordia’s
September 15, 2022
On Sept. 7, the exhibition “Fa…que” by visual artist Daphne Boyer opened at the Montréal, Arts Interculturels. This exhibition arrived six years after Boyer, who is of Métis descent, made her debut in the art scene through the MAI’s mentorship program.
A plant scientist by training, Boyer always knew she wanted to be an artist. In 2016, she got the support of Michael Toppings from the MAI, who offered her the opportunity to be mentored by Indigenous curator and artist France Trépanier.
“France saw my work and she said, ‘Daphne, if you keep these things to yourself, you’re being selfish. Get them out and make them big’,” Boyer explained. “So six or seven years later, here I am. I’m back to say thank you to the MAI for supporting me because they launched my career and changed my life.”
