Althea Thauberger is a female artist born in Canada, currently working in Canada.

Althea Thauberger began her art practice as a photographer and now produces primarily film and video. Born in 1970 in Saskatoon, she currently lives in Vancouver. Thauberger has exhibited extensively since graduating with an MFA from the University of Victoria in 2002, and she has already gained international critical acclaim. In 2004 she was one of five artists short-listed for the Sobey Art Award, the pre-eminent prize for young Canadian artists.

Thauberger’s artworks are often concerned with the social document and self expression, and allude to popular forms of music and drama. In addition to contemporary modes, her influences include the histories of painting and photography. Her portraits of social landscapes tend to locate people in natural settings, as in the recent work, Songstress, and a new project set in a remote wilderness community of tree-planters.
