My-Van Dam is a multidisciplinary artist based in Tiohtiá: ke / Mooniyang / Montréal. She graduated from the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM) in visual and media arts and is a member of the CODE BLANC collective alongside artist Stanley Février and Maryam Izadifard. Her artistic practice focuses on the transmission of intergenerational trauma and its multiple physical and psychological impacts. She also explores body memory and the healing processes that foster personal and collective emancipation from oppressive systems. Her current research is rooted in the exploration of somatic theories and practices to propose a vision of care that is interdependent and collaborative.


Dam has exhibited across Quebec, notably as part of the Musée d'Art Actuel/Département des Invisibles (MAADI) at the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (2022) and at the University of Sherbrooke (2021). She has also presented works at the Centre Culturel George Vanier (2024) as part of the POST-INVISIBLE biennial, at the Rad Hourani Foundation (2021), at Place-des-arts de Montréal (2021), Galerie Projet Casa (2022) and at the Art Souterrain festival (2022). She was the recipient of a residency at the SBC galerie d'art contemporain (2023).
