Thomas Strickland is an artist, architect, writer and curator. He received his PhD from the School of Architecture at McGill University in 2012. He was a fellow at the Canadian Centre for Architecture (2009) and held an appointment as architectural historian in the Department of Art History, Concordia University from 2012-2013. Thomas has designed for award-winning architectural firms, is a founding partner of pouf! art and architecture, and has received numerous grants for his work as an artist and curator. His collaborative practice explores how themes of cultural diversity, embodiment, and individual agency can be incorporated into spatial activist strategies and the formation of publics. During his residency, he will be working with LGBT refugees living in Barcelona to make visible the ways in which non-documented individuals physically and symbolically appropriate urban space – how they make neighbourhood.
