Canadian interdisciplinary artist and arts administrator. His work has been exhibited across Canada; most recently in the Project Room at Stride Gallery (Calgary) and as part of Nuit Blanche 2012 in Montreal. In addition to his studio practice, McLeod maintains an active role in the arts community as the Programming Director & Co‐Founder of AVALANCHE! Institute of Contemporary Art, and the Editor of Fresh Bread (freshbreaddaily.ca).

Over a three‐week period in the 809 Residency, Nate McLeod will construct Sunset Strip, a site‐specific project comprised of paintings, prints, and sculptures drawn together through a unity of color and repetition of forms. The works will explore the relationship found between text and imagery, using the names of three Behr Premium Plus paint colors as a starting point.
