Eli Kerr is a Canadian curator and writer based in Montréal. With an interest and commitment to place, scale and the histories of the site, he has spent the last 7 years in Montréal establishing independent contexts that explore ways to support artists through exhibition-making, text and organizing.
In 2015 he co-founded VIE D’ANGE with Daphné Boxer. The project was located in a 3,400 sqft auto-body garage slated for demolition in the Marconi-Alexandria neighborhood. Their exhibition programme foregrounded sequential new site-specific projects by local and international artists that engaged with the history and speculative futures of the site.
In 2020 Kerr founded Parc Offsite, a curatorial office and exhibition space on Avenue Du Parc that focuses on intimate-scale exhibitions and the development of future art initiatives in Montréal. He has previously completed residencies at International Studio and Curatorial Program (New York, USA) and at Rupert (Vilnius, Lithuania). Kerr holds a BFA from Concordia University (2015) and is currently completing a Masters of Visual Studies in the Curatorial Studies program at the University of Toronto.
