Caitlin Rueter (b. 1978) lives and works in Toronto, Canada.

Rueter’s work is built on the layering and assemblage of materials, in service of, or in dialogue with a specific historical narrative. Repeating a series of steps—collecting, editing, deconstructing, assembling, fragmenting, superimposing and embedding bodies, objects or text within other objects or images—Rueter layers concepts and materials.

Her practice takes various forms, including photo-based assemblage, video, and printmaking. In addition to her studio practice, Rueter has been engaged in a long-running, collaborative public performance project. In each of these practices, Rueter draws on historical imagery to create narratives.

She is represented by bildkultur galerie in Stuttgart, Germany. She received an MFA from Parsons the New School for Design in 2009. Rueter’s work is exhibited internationally.
