About the Artist

Luke Maddaford is an interdisciplinary Canadian artist, writer, curator, and community organizer. Drawing from his own experiences, he is interested in exploring identity, placemaking, and queer histories and futures. Much of his current practice investigates and participates in queer space and culture outside of major metropolitan cities. His work increasingly explores community building and the potential for cross-regional queer networks. He has exhibited throughout Canada, and participated in residencies in Fort McMurray, AB, Windsor, ON, and Northern Ontario. Luke holds a Diploma in Visual Art and Design from Keyano College, a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Drawing from the Alberta College of Art + Design, and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Visual Art from the University of Windsor. He currently lives in Windsor, ON, where he founded LEFT Contemporary, a grassroots studio and exhibition space, and co-edits Off Centre, an online publication.
