Byron Peters is an artist and writer who works with film, networked technologies, sculpture, text, drawing, and sound installation. Often through long-term collaborations, his work and research engages with collective labour practices, digitality and racial capitalism, and histories of science and mathematics.
Exhibition venues include The Darling Foundry, Montreal; Para Site, Hong Kong; ICA Miami; The White Building, London; The Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts, New York; and The Asian Art Museum of San Francisco. He has given talks at institutions such as The New School, New York; The Centre for the Study of Contemporary Art at UCL; The Victoria and Albert Museum; and The London School of Economics. His films have screened at Images Festival, True/False, DOXA, International Film Festival Rotterdam, and others. Since 2018, Byron collaborated with the late activist and community television producer Sid Chow Tan towards archive-based films that weave together questions of racial justice, mathematics, mythologies, and histories of Chinatown and the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver.
