Kyle Whitehead is an artist working primarily with small-format film to create experimental and expanded cinema projects. He prefers a careful and considered approach to image making; which should not be confused with best practices, as his work is about embracing the potential of indeterminate process. What he wants is the definitive by chance - leveraging trailing-edge technologies often with unusual or startling effect. His films, performance work and installations have been shown nationally and internationally with recent exhibitions at the Museo Tamayo, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Oaxaca, Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival, Antimatter Media Art, WNDX Festival of Moving Image, Smiths Row Gallery and in solo exhibitions at Galerie Sans Nom and TRUCK Contemporary Art - he has also participated in residencies at Struts Gallery/Faucet Media Arts Centre and the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture. In addition to his art practice Kyle is a former arts administrator, co-founder of PARTICLE + WAVE Media Arts Festival, and curates MONOGRAPH, an ongoing series of experimental film programs in Southern Alberta, where he currently resides.
