Evelyne Leblanc-Roberge was born in a small francophone coastal village in eastern Canada. She received a BFA in Photography from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada and a MFA in Electronic Integrated Arts from Alfred University in Alfred, New York. At the center of her art practice are images, usually taken with a camera, printed, projected, on screens, bound together in a book, sent by mail, wrapped around objects, or carefully placed in a room. Her projects generally involve acts of close observation of the physical spaces she (and/or her collaborators) inhabit. Evelyne was an artist-in-residence at the Red Gate Gallery in Beijing, China, the Digital Arts Studios in Belfast, United Kingdom, Espace F in Matane, Canada, Signal Culture in Owego, New York, Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, New York, Le Magasin General in Sainte-Madeleine, Canada, La Cité Internationale des Arts in Paris, France, AIR 3331 Arts Chiyoda in Tokyo, Japan, at Lastation in Gagliano del Capo, Italy, and at CAMAC at Marnay-sur-seine, France. Evelyne has received grants from the Canada Council for the Arts and the University of Rochester to produce solo and collaborative long term pluridisciplinary projects. She is currently an Associate Professor of Art and Lens Based Media at the University of Rochester in Rochester, New York.
