Morris Fox

Staff, Student

Morris Fox (he/they) is a queer-gothic artist/writer, and an Interdisciplinary Humanities PhD candidate at Concordia (Tiohtiá:ke-Mooniyang-Montréal), under the advisory committee of Dr. Kathleen Vaughan, Danielle Bobker, and Aaron McIntosh. Fox’s practice cruises the haunted house for feelings of community. Words and materials become a net that enmeshes, become a necropolis, a cemetery of desire. He interconnects eco-poetry, self-performance, VR, video, textiles, chainmaille, with queer material research, rubbing against ruins of memory, shimmering with apocalyptic imaginaries.

Fox graduated from SAIC’s Low Residency MFA (2018), and Concordia’s Studio Arts BFA (2011). Past exhibitions include: Regarde! Tiotiá:ke (2023), Sex Ecologies: Becoming Plastic, Stoveworks (2023), Psionic Hope, Astonishing Dream, Trinity Square Video (2023), My Gay Mediaeval Times, Spacemaker II, (2022), Vestiges&Remains, Artcite Inc., (2022), Claudia Hart’s Ludicy, Hyphen Hubs (2021), Gothwerk, Hotwheelz Festival (2020). Fox interned at the Icelandic Textile Centre, Blönduós (2020), and completed artist residencies including NES, Skagaströnd (2019), Icelandic Textile Centre (2019), Artscape Gibraltar Point, (2018). He is a member of the collective QueerSoftOrange and the research coordinator for Textiles and Materiality Cluster at Milieux Institute of Arts, Culture, and Technology
