Brian Rideout makes pictures about pictures. His work investigates contemporary images, sourced from print and online, for their art historical relevance, as a continuation of the history of painting and image production. Rideout's works comprise a narrative of art, architecture, and object following an undulating cycle of definition, utility, and design, softly dramatizing the multiple registers that art has come to occupy and employ over time as a material thing wholly existing in the world. He is interested in art as document, as decoration, as ideological accessory, as technological or functional support.

Rideout (b. 1986) was the 2017 recipient of the The Premier's Awards for Excellence in the Arts. He studied at Georgian College (Barrie, ON) and has recently had solo exhibitions at Parisian Laundry, AC Repair Co., and Georgian College. Recent group shows include Spring/Break Art Fair (NYC), Art Toronto (Toronto), 'Unkempt' at MAW (NYC), 'Open House' at Sleep Center (NYC),'The Agency of Acquaintances' at Clint Roenisch Gallery (Toronto), and 'Taking [A] Part' at Mercer Union (Toronto).
