“You’re So Pretty” By Maddie Alexander a Canadian artist studying and working in Toronto, Ontario. She began her education studying at NSCAD University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, and is now in her final year at OCAD University to graduate with a BFA in Photography. Her work explores multiple themes including the female bodies’ presence in our history and society, breaking down the stigmatization of mental illness, and LGBPTTQQIIAA+ issues. Mainly through portraiture and combining text and image, she enjoys working experimentally by integrating multidisciplinary practices.

Maddie would like to dedicate her work in this exhibition to the late artist and activist Wendy Coburn; Thank you for paving the way for young queer artists of today, thank you for teaching me the power of art as a form of social justice and activism, thank you for helping me find my voice.
