@morgan__elena - The Art of Being Queer - Artist Feature

Tonight’s fabulous queer artist feature is @morgan__elena

Artist Statement:

SOFT explores various manifestations of love, tender care and intimate relationships between queer people as a demonstration of a political resistance. All desires, love, affection and forms of care are validated and important to this series; I work to create a space to be vulnerable and peel off our layers of hurt and hardness that we build up, focusing on how queer love can transform us.

Morgan Bio:

Morgan Sears-Williams is an interdisciplinary artist working in Toronto and holds a BFA in Photography from OCAD University. She is interested in experimenting with image making, installation, publications, and mixed media works as a tool for self-exploration, and defining and re-inventing perceptions of your self. Her practice often explores larger themes of feminist queer histories, collective memory and questioning institutional archiving practices. She has exhibited her works in Toronto, Kingston and internationally and was the recipient of the Pandora Y. H. Ho Memorial Award and the Artscape Youngplace Career Launcher in 2017.
