Mady (Marie Bourdages, b. 1966) is a Montreal-based artist who creates expressionist-inspired works in chalk, pastels, charcoal, and oil paint. Her work expresses highly personal emotions and sensibilities, and often dwells on life, death, lesbian and autoerotic sexuality, spirituality, and memory and its distortions.

Mady's work was first shown in 1985 at the Université du Quebec à Montréal and has since been exhibited in dozens of shows and galleries in Montreal, New York, and Germany.

This exhibition features images from nine distinct series in Mady's career beginning with the Piaf Series (1990-1991).
