Maddie Alexander is a queer, non-binary artist and arts facilitator practicing in Toronto, Ontario. They began their education at NSCAD University, and hold a BFA in Photography from OCAD University. They have exhibited locally and internationally, and received the Project 31 Photography Award in 2016. They have participated in multiple residencies, panels, and artist talks- most recently presenting a lecture at the University of Calgary as a part of their Art Now program. Their work interrogates narratives of queer identity in a multidisciplinary practice, which manifests mainly in moving or still image, text, and installation. Their research and production sources imagery from pop culture, pornography, and other forms of mass media to explore representations of queerness. With this approach they aim to dissect the way this imagery shapes and distorts our understanding of queer bodies, identity and sexuality.
