Blue Republic has worked on projects fore-fronting anti-poverty education and activism in Brazil's favelas, and worked with inmates at the Ontario Correctional Institute, among numerous projects around the globe. They have also exhibited widely at venues in Canada including Darling Foundry, Montreal and Doris McCarthy Gallery, University of Toronto, Scarborough, as well as abroad at the Serpentine Gallery, London; daadgalerie, Berlin; and Ludwig Forum for International Art, Aachen. Currently, Blue Republic is in Nature in Art exhibition at Krakow’s MOCAK. They divide their time between Krakow and Toronto, where they are represented by Georgia Scherman Projects.
