Christopher Lacroix

Christopher Lacroix (b. 1986, Edmonton) is a PhD student in the School for the Contemporary Arts at Simon Fraser University. His work yields queer perspectives through conceptually and formally absurd explorations of materials and objects. These queer perspectives are often a blend of humour, refusal, and aspirations for alternative relations or futures. Lacroix received an MFA from the University of British Columbia (2018) and a BFA from Toronto Metropolitan University (2012). In 2018 he was awarded the Lind Prize for emerging lens-based artists, and was long-listed for the 2021 Scotiabank New Generation Photography Award. He lives and works in Vancouver which is located on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) nations.
