My name is Andrea Valentine-Lewis (she/her)

I am a curator and writer based on the traditional and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) peoples, also known as Vancouver, Canada. I was raised on the land of the W̱SÁNEĆ People – the Salt Water People, also known as Brentwood Bay. It is a coastal and rural region of Vancouver Island abundant with Arbutus trees, ravens, and blackberry bushes.

My research interests within contemporary art include Night Studies, queer ecology, wildlife photography, and affect; I am currently focused on how those veins can intersect through artistic strategies. I am also interested in ceramics.

I work as a Curatorial Assistant at Vancouver Art Gallery.

When I’m not working, you can find me reading, painting, cooking, exercising, or hanging out with my partner Dylan.
