Guillaume Vandame (b. 1991, New York) is a French-American artist and writer based in London, often collaborating with Josh Wright as part of the socially engaged artist collective, Wright & Vandame.
As an interdisciplinary artist, Vandame is interested in expanding ideas of language and meaning through a conceptual, queer, and socially engaged aesthetic, especially the subjects of representation, intimacy, and post-gay identity. Vandame has shown his art internationally in London, Luxembourg, and Copenhagen, among other cities.
In 2019, Vandame presented his first public art work commissioned by Sculpture in the City for Nocturnal Creatures in partnership with the Whitechapel Gallery, London and he received an a-n bursary to support research in queer theory, printmaking, and scent. In the midst of the pandemic, he started a campaign across the U.K. for the public to submit their discarded NHS Rainbow artwork. Between 2020 and 2021, he part in an artist residency at Union Chapel, London and he is currently included in the 10th edition of Sculpture in the City, London between 2021 and 2022.
With Josh Wright, he has shown at fig-2 at the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; Chi-Wen Gallery, Taiwan; Gazelli Art House, London; MK Gallery, Milton Keynes; Photofusion, London; and recently at the Whitechapel Gallery, London. They were selected as Artists-in-Residence for Open House with Kettle’s Yard between 2019 and 2020.
