Pierre-François Ouelllette art contemporain (Montreal) is pleased to announce a solo exhibition of new paintings by Dil Hildebrand at PULSE Contemporay Art Fair in Miami. Coming off a recent residency at the Banff Centre and a duo show at Truck artist-run centre in Calgary, Hildebrand's exhibition in Miami will be his first US show since last year's duo presentation at NEXT Chicago (with Kent Monkman).
PULSE Contemporary Art Fair, held annually in Miami and New York, is the leading US art fair dedicated solely to contemporary art. PULSE will move to Miami's Ice Palace this December with an enhanced and expanded presentation of international galleries and programming. PULSE enters its fifth season with a continued commitment to presenting high-caliber contemporary art from an internationally-diverse roster of exhibitors. The new venue provides PULSE with an expanded platform for their special programming series, including the launch of an ambitious performance program featuring daily outdoor concerts.

Born in Winnipeg and living currently in Montréal, Dil Hildebrand works in a range of media including oil and acrylic paint, and charcoal. Winner of the prestigious Royal Bank of Canada National Painting Competition in 2006, Hildebrand has already gained the reputation of being among the most talented Canadian painters of his generation. His work has been featured in duo exhibitions at Truck Gallery (Calgary), NEXT Chicago and in major group shows including "Ideas of Landscape 2" (Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal), "Carte Blanche Volume 2: Painting" (MOCCA, Toronto) and "EntreVoir" (Galerie de l’UQAM), curated by Louise Déry. His paintings can be found in important museum, public and corporate collections including The Musée d'art contemporain de Montreal, the Canada Council Art Bank, the Royal Bank of Canada, Bennett Jones LLP, Osler Hoskin & Harcourt LLP and McCarthy Tétrault LLP.
Early next year Anteism Press will publish a major catalogue of Hildebrand’s work entitled Faktura: The Paintings of Dil Hildebrand, with essays by Richard Rhodes (Canadian Art) and Louise Déry (Galerie de l’UQAM). His paintings will also be featured in a solo exhibition at YYZ Artists' Outlet (Toronto) in the fall of 2010.
