Aislinn Thomas

Canada - Nova Scotia

She/They

Aislinn Thomas is an interdisciplinary artist.  Her work responds to everyday experiences and relationships, creating projects that range from poignant to absurd, at times straddling both.  She gratefully works alongside and in the legacy of so many who, out of necessity, treat access as a space for creative acts. Exhibitions include the WRO Media Arts Biennial (Poland), Walter Phillips Gallery (Banff, AB), Tangled Art + Disability (Toronto, ON), Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery (ON), articule (Montreal) and Flux Factory (New York). Recent and upcoming writing has/will be published in The Cripsters, ArtsEverywhere, and BlackFlash Magazine. Aislinn is a white, cisgender settler of Ashkenazic and UK descent. She is grateful to live in Unama'ki / Cape Breton, in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq people.
