born 1996, Montréal - lives and works in Montréal, QC
Alexia McKindsey obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University in 2020.
McKindsey investigates notions of familial narratives, lived spaces, heritage, and history. Incorporating painting, collage, and craft-based techniques, her work pays homage to the collective memory and identity of a home spanning generations of a family, while investigating the physical progression of time and tradition that have passed through their dwellings.
She has exhibited at Maison de la culture Notre-Dame-de-Grâce, La Guilde, Art Souterrain, ARTCH, and AVE Gallery. Most recently, she presented her solo exhibition Mnemonic Devices at McClure Gallery in December 2022.
