Artist biography

Leslie Reid studied at Queen’s University, Kingston, and the Chelsea College of Art and the Slade School of Fine Art in England. On her return to Canada she taught Visual Arts at the University of Ottawa, where she is now Professor Emerita. She exhibited in the landmark exhibition Some Canadian Women Artists (National Gallery of Canada, 1975 – 76), in celebration of the first International Women’s Year, and also represented Canada at the Paris Biennale. Her retrospective exhibition Leslie Reid: A Darkening Vision was curated by Diana Nemiroff (Carleton University Art Gallery, 2011), and her paintings were exhibited in Builders: The Canadian Biennial (National Gallery of Canada, 2012). Her recent work results from travel to the High Arctic, and explores climate change and sovereignty issues and their effects on northern communities. Participation in the Canadian Forces Artists Program resulted in the solo exhibition Mapping a Cold War (Founders’ Gallery, The Military Museums, Calgary, 2016). Video work from her participation with the Canada C3 2017 expedition, travelling through the Northwest Passage, was recently shown in Open Channels (Âjagemô Gallery, Canada Council, 2019).
