Adrienne Crossman (She/Her, They/Them) is an interdisciplinary artist, educator and curator working in Hamilton and Windsor, Ontario. She holds an MFA in Visual Art from the University of Windsor (2018), and a BFA in Integrated Media with a Minor in Digital and Media Studies from OCAD University (2012). Their practice investigates the liminality between the digital and the physical while highlighting queer sensibilities in the everyday. Crossman is interested in how the terms trans* and non-binary apply to media as well as gender, and she creates queer interventions through the manipulation of digital media and popular culture with a focus on the queer potentiality of the non-human. Crossman's curatorial practice involves a strong emphasis on fostering community within the digital new media art world and bridging the gap between virtual and physical space.
Adrienne has completed residencies in Syracuse (NY), Montréal (QC), Artscape Gibraltar Point on the Toronto Islands (ON), and Studio Beat (studio-beat.com), and has exhibited at: Xpace Cultural Centre (Toronto, Ontario), Idea Exchange (Cambridge, Ontario), 8eleven (Toronto, Ontario), Studio L'Eloi (Montreal, Quebec), Moscow Biennale for Young Art (Moscow, Russia), and The Wrong New Digital Art Biennale (thewrong.org). Adrienne is currently working as a sessional instructor in the School of the Arts at McMaster University in Hamilton.
Adrienne's work is made possible through funding from the Toronto Arts Council.
