Althea Thauberger is an emerging media artist based in Vancouver. She completed a B.F.A in Photography at Concordia University in Montreal and a M.F.A. in Studio Arts at the University of Victoria. Her recent video and photographic work often involves collaboration with its subjects and invites both sympathetic and critical reflection of tropes relating to individualism and self-expression, romanticism and nature and aspects of youth cultures with which she identifies. Althea has been exhibiting nationally for three years. Upcoming group exhibitions include "Baja to Vancouver" at the Seattle Art Museum, Art Forum Berlin and Bambi at the Philadelphia Institute of Contemporary Art.
She was awarded the Artist Residency with British artist Gillian Wearing at the Atlantic Center for the Arts, Florida, in 2003.
