Theo Jean Cuthand

Greater Toronto Art 2024

Theo Jean Cuthand (b. Regina, Saskatchewan) is an artist whose practice delves into themes of sexuality, madness, queerness, love, and Indigeneity. Since 1995, Cuthand has been making experimental and narrative short films and videos, and his more recent projects have expanded to incorporate video game development, feature film script-writing, and performance. He completed his Bachelor of Fine Arts, majoring in film and video, at Emily Carr University of Art and Design in 2005, and his Master of Arts in Media Production at Toronto Metropolitan University in 2015. Cuthand’s films have been shown nationally and internationally, including at the Whitney Biennial (New York), Tribeca Film Festival (New York), MixBrasil Culture of Diversity Festival (São Paulo), ImagineNATIVE (Toronto), Ann Arbor Film Festival, Images Festival (Toronto), Berlinale, New York Film Festival, Outfest (Los Angeles), and Oberhausen International Short Film Festival. Cuthand currently lives and works in Toronto.

For GTA24, MOCA will feature two experimental videos by Cuthand: Love & Numbers (2004), and Sight (2012). Each video incorporates a first-person voiceover-style narrative, and are frank but poetic reflections on the artist’s experience of mental illness and the impacts of ongoing settler colonialism.
