About Adrienne Crossman:

Adrienne Crossman is an artist, educator and curator. She holds a BFA in Integrated Media and a Minor in Digital and Media Studies from OCAD University. She has completed residencies in Syracuse, NY, Montréal, Windsor, and Artscape Gibraltar Point on the Toronto Islands.

In the pursuit of creating a queer aesthetic, Crossman's work is concerned with the exploration of non-normative and non-binary spaces, while attempting to locate queer sensibilities in the everyday. Adrienne is currently an MFA candidate in Visual Art at the University of Windsor.
