Tyler J Sloane
Tyler J Sloane – They/Them. As an Anishinaabe (Oji-cree), Chinese, White mixed race Non-binary artist, my work emphasizes marginalized voices with an intrinsic intersectional lens and artistic framework. As a trans racial adoptee growing up in a predominantly white community, my desire to represent the beauty of experiencing racialization and queerness to translate it through stories and artistry is inherent. They are currently participating as a Fellow in Why Not Theatre’s ThisGen: PROVOKE Producing Fellowship. Beyond, Tyler is a multi-disciplinary artist with a focus in Media Arts (Photography and Videography), Visual Arts (Mural Art, Watercolour, Mixed Media), and Performance (Performance Art, Burlesque and Drag under the stage name Tygr Willy). Lead Artist for ‘Passion Fruit: Club Kid Alley’ installation in the Transforming Grief: Loss and Togetherness in COVID-19 Exhibition at Fort York Visitor Centre, with an experimental film surrounding the joy of tease debuting May of 2023 called ‘Everland’.
