Kiera Boult is an interdisciplinary artist and performer from Hamilton, Ontario. Boult’s practice utilizes camp and comedy to skeptically address issues that surround the role and/or identity of the artist and the institution. In 2019, Boult was the recipient of the Hamilton Emerging Visual Artist Award. Her video and installation based works have been exhibited at Art Gallery of Hamilton, Trinity Square Video and Artcite Inc. She has performed in the Art Gallery of York University’s final Performance Bus, 7a*11d’s 7a*md8 – ONLINE, and the Art Gallery of Ontario’s First Thursday. Boult has participated in Life of a Crap Head’s Doo Red (2019), special performance show presentation at the Toronto Biennial of Art, and in Killjoy’s Kastle in Philadelphia (2019), a performance and immersive visual art installation by artists Allyson Mitchell and Deirdre Logue. Boult’s work has also appeared in the Chroma Issue of Canadian Art, Peripheral Review and the Brut Neuve issue of Blackflash. She holds a BFA in Criticism and Curatorial Practice from OCAD University and is currently Vtape’s Submissions, Collections & Outreach Coordinator.
