Didier Morelli is a FRQSC Postdoctoral Fellow whose research project “Street Actions: Women Performing in Montreal (1970-1980)” examines how second-wave feminist performances subverted urban functionalism by imagining alternate modes of embodiment in Montreal and its peripheries during the 1970s in the aftermath of the October Crisis. He holds a PhD in Performance Studies from Northwestern University, Chicago, Illinois (2021); Master of Fine Arts from the School for Contemporary Arts at Simon Fraser University, Vancouver (2014); MA from the Centre for Drama, Theatre, and Performance Studies at the University of Toronto (2012); and a BA in Liberal Arts from Concordia University (2011). Associate editor at Espace art actuel, a contemporary arts magazine in Montreal, his writing has also been published in Art Journal, CTR: Canadian Theatre Review, C Magazine, Esse Arts + Opinions, RACAR, Spirale, and TDR: The Drama Review, amongst others. In addition to being the curatorial research assistant for the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (MNBAQ) career retrospective of the photographer Evergon (2022), Morelli also curated Traversée/Crossing, a group exhibition on the intersections of contemporary art and watersports at Stewart Hall Art Gallery (2022), as well as a forthcoming online video art project on the environment and performance at the Grantham Foundation for the Arts and the Environment (2023). A practicing visual and performance artist himself, he is scheduled for a solo exhibition at the Centre des arts actuels Skol in the spring of 2023.
