About Logan MacDonald

Logan MacDonald illustrationLogan MacDonald is a visual artist of mixed European and Mi’kmaq ancestry, belonging to the Elmastukwek people of Ktaqmkuk territory (Bay of Islands, Newfoundland). His interdisciplinary practice explores notions of belonging in contexts of cultural erasure, queer and disability experiences. MacDonald has been featured as a solo artist exhibiting in competitive and critically engaged galleries throughout Canada, including The Lay of Land project at Eastern Edge (2017), Ace Art Inc. (2018), and Grenfell Art Gallery, and the exhibition Bæōdut / Hidden Histories at the Newfoundland provincial museum The Rooms (2019). He is the author of a forthcoming chapter Tall Timber: Reasoning Indigenous Art Histories of Newfoundland and Labrador, as part of the Future Possibles exhibition catalogue held at The Rooms. He was longlisted for the 2019 Sobey Art Award, from which he was awarded a six-month artist residency at the Künstlerhaus Benthanien in Berlin. MacDonald has taught at three post-secondary institutions and joined the Department of Fine Arts at Waterloo in 2019. In 2020, he was named a CRC in Indigenous Art.
