AUArts is deeply saddened over the loss of Matthew Mark Bourree, an inspiring artist, Albertan and Alum (BFA Painting 2010) who served as a cornerstone of the Calgary arts community.
His enduring commitment to grassroots and artist-led activities established an inimitable precedent for future generations of local artists.
Matthew’s curatorial projects provided emerging artists with opportunities to develop their practices and were instrumental in building the local arts community. He was a member of the Wreck City collective, with whom he produced several large-scale projects, and co-founded the Bakery Studio Collective with fellow AUArts alum Nate McLeod.
Our deepest condolences go out to his friends and family during this time.
