New Voices – Luke Maddaford
September 15 - October 15
New Voices is ACWR’s new 6 x 6 foot billboard located on the external wall of ArtSpeak gallery, right on the alleyway. The billboard, which features interchangeable letters, will be a place for language-based exhibitions and for concrete and experimental poetry installations. The initial focus of this program is to provide an outlet for underrepresented and marginalized voices in our community, including new generation artists, new immigrant artists, artists of colour, indigenous artists, artists with disabilities, francophone artists, and 2SLGBTQ+ communities.

Meet the Artist: Luke Maddaford

Luke Maddaford is a Canadian artist and curator interested in exploring identity, placemaking, and Queer histories and futures. Much of his current research revolves around regionality and the Queer use of space. He has exhibited throughout Canada and holds a Diploma in Visual Art and Design from Keyano College, a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Drawing from the Alberta College of Art + Design, and a Master of Fine Arts degree in Visual Art from the University of Windsor. He currently lives in Windsor, ON, where he founded LEFT Contemporary and co-edits off centre.

Artist Statement:

Aren’t we all just looking for a good time? Playing into the form and function of the sign, the installation “You Can Always Find A Good Time In Windsor” rewards the viewer with an interactive experience that encourages new forms of engagement and reminds them that you can always find a good time in Windsor.
