Grace is a complex survey of works by Cree/Saulteaux/Métis artist Lori Blondeau. Throughout her career, Blondeau has produced tough, powerful female personas in her performance and photography-based practice. Her extensive body of work continues to impact and influence Canadian contemporary art. 

Lori Blondeau is an interdisciplinary artist working primarily in performance and photography. Blondeau is a member of the George Gordon First Nation in Saskatchewan. She holds an MFA from the University of Saskatchewan and apprenticed with James Luna from 1998-2001.

In addition to her extensive exhibition history, Blondeau is a co-founder of the Indigenous artist collective TRIBE Inc. She has exhibited and performed nationally and internationally, including at the Banff Centre; Mendel Art Gallery, Saskatoon; Open Space, Victoria; and FOFA, Montreal. In 2007, Blondeau was part of The Requickening Project with artist Shelly Niro at the Venice Biennale, and recently had a solo exhibition at Urban Shaman Contemporary Aboriginal Art Gallery, Winnipeg.
