Toronto-born Louise Noguchi received her MFA from the University of Windsor and her AOCA from the Ontario College of Art and Design in Toronto. She is a professor in the Art and Art History program, a collaboration between the Sheridan Institute of Technology & Advanced Learning and the University of Toronto Mississauga. She teaches photography and performance-based art. 

Using video, photography, sculpture, and other media, Louise's concepts confront the spectator's notions of identity, perception, and reality. Her work has depicted wild-west rodeo skills that explore performances in trick roping, knife throwing, sharpshooting, gun spinning, and tricks with a whip. More recent videos have examined tourist locations and principal monuments of her Canadian and ancestral histories as locations of cultural memory and experience. Louise's video work has screened at The Courtisane Short Film and Video Festival (Brussels), Media City Film and Video Festival (Windsor), Reel Asian Film Festival (Toronto), YYZ Artists Outlet (Toronto), Centre A (Vancouver), Expo 2005 VIP Lounge, Canadian Pavilion, Aichi (Japan), Gallery of Contemporary Art, University of Colorado (Colorado Springs), Richmond Center for the Arts, Western Michigan University and the Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto). Exhibitions of Louise's photographic and sculptural works have exhibited in solo and group exhibitions at The Power Plant (Toronto), The Contemporary Art Gallery (Vancouver), Neuer Berliner Kunstverein (Berlin), and the Deutsches Museum (Munich). Birch Contemporary in Toronto represents Louise's work.
