Christina Leslie is an artist based in Pickering, ON. She earned her B.F.A. in 2006 at OCADU in Toronto and is presently pursuing her M.F.A. at the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia, USA. Leslie was a speaker at the SPE conference in Philadelphia in 2010 and a panelist for the Position as Desired symposium at the Royal Ontario Museum in 2011. Her photographs have been featured in numerous publications; most recently in the UK magazine MURZE in issues Four, Ten, and Twelve (2019 and 2020). Her latest series Morant Bay was shown in two solo exhibitions in April, 2020. One was part of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival and three prints from the series were transformed onto billboards as part of Vancouver’s Capture Festival. Leslie was part of the exhibition When night stirred at Sea: Contemporary Caribbean Art at PAMA in Brampton in fall 2020 and is in the upcoming exhibition Movers and Makers at Prefix ICA in Toronto. Much of her photographic practice revolves around the themes of identity, immigration, issues of marginalization, memory, race, and her West Indian heritage. She often utilizes text and photo collage in her work, as well as historical photographic processes.

 

The Album is a featured online exhibition of the Scotiabank CONTACT Photography Festival.
