Andrea Szilasi lives and works in Montreal. She is a photo-based artist whose work examines the nature and practice of photography itself, and the representation of the human body. Influenced by a range of Modern and Postmodern examples, she moved quickly and comprehensively into a personal approach to camera-based artmaking, often using herself as a model.


Szilasi has participated in many solo and group exhibitions since the 1990s in museums, artist-run centres, and private galleries across Canada, the United States, Mexico and Europe. Her work can be found in major collections, including the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, the National Gallery of Canada, Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal, and the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec. Szilasi’s work has been featured in several publications including Femmes artistes du XXe siècle au Québec, published by the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec, and the Musée virtuel de la photographie québécoise published by Vox Populi. She holds an MFA in Photography from Concordia University, a BFA in Studio Arts (Painting and Drawing) from Concordia University (1991), and a BA in Film Studies and French Language and Literature from the University of Toronto (1988).
