Justin A. Langlois is an artist, educator, and organizer working across media and social practices. He is the co-founder and research director of Broken City Lab, an artist-led interdisciplinary research collective working to explore the complexities of locality, infrastructures, and participation in relation to civic engagement and social change. His practice explores collaborative structures, critical pedagogy, and custodial frameworks as tools for enacting divergent possibilities for gathering, learning, and making. Artistic, curatorial, and design-based methodologies intersect throughout his research and creative activity and support his interests in the capacity of gestural and tactical action to generate critical public dialogue. He holds an MFA from the University of Windsor and he is currently an Assistant Professor in the Faculty of Culture + Community at Emily Carr University of Art and Design.
