Montreal artist Milutin Gubash was born in Serbia. His practice, which encompasses photography, video and performance, features his family and friends. A 10-year survey of work is the subject of a collaborative exhibition project undertaken by the Southern Alberta Art Gallery in conjunction with Rodman Hall Art Centre, Carleton University Art Gallery, Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery and Musée d’art de Joliette. A major publication is planned for release in late 2012.

Gubash uses mass media as a vehicle to document and explore his personal history and identity. Incorporating ‘fake’ paintings, website projects, newspaper headlines and comic strips, Remote Viewing: True Stories is a comprehensive look at his work. His signature piece, Born Rich, Getting Poorer, presents six episodes of a DIY sitcom showing Gubash and his family overcoming adversity and political strife, successfully “escaping” the former Communist Yugoslavia, and starting a new life with new issues in Canada.

Since earning his MFA at Concordia University in 2000, Gubash has exhibited extensively in Canada, the United States and Europe. He has received grants from Canada Council and from Art Councils in British Columbia, Quebec and Saskatchewan as well as several residencies, most recently at the Sagamie National Research and Exhibition Centre for Contemporary Digital Art. In 2007, he was Assistant Professor and Head of the Photography and Digital Imaging Program at the University of Saskatchewan.
