Claudia Edwards is a performance and visual artist based in Toronto, Canada. Of Indo-Guyanese and British descent, their work explores issues of identity, memory, queerness, power, and decolonization. Their approach is conceptually driven and formally determined by operation and circulation, spanning the forms of socially-engaged performance art, persona, somatic dance, photography, video, text and objects. Edwards has created performances for Pi*llOry, The School of Making Thinking, Flux Factory, Virtual International Exchange, and more. Their curatorial work includes HOTWIRE, a live art series featuring QTBIPOC artists hosted in residency at Hub14, and serving on the Rhubarb 2020 curatorial collective. They obtained their BFA at Concordia University in 2016.
