Artist in Residence – Artist Talk

Artist in Residence – Artist Talk


This Winter, Casa will be hosting Noah Crowder, who creates textile art under the moniker Monster Boy, as part of the Artist in Residence (AiR) program.

Open House events offer our community the opportunity to talk with visiting artists about their practice and see the products of their residency, in a friendly informal setting. Drop by and see what they’ve been working on! Artist Talks give space for AiRs to share a visual presentation, offering insight into the research methods that influence their art practice and opportunity for the audience to ask questions. AiR Workshops invite you to learn new techniques and perspectives by allowing you to create alongside the visiting artists.

Join Monster Boy for an artist talk and in-progress presentation of the works he is creating in the Textile Studio at Casa. Learn about the importance of the felt medium and its ability to convey emotion through imagery and storytelling.

Monster Boy, the persona for Noah Crowder, is a textile artist based in Victoria, British Columbia. Monster Boy creates whimsical and colourful fibre art sculptures to tell personal stories, often about how it feels to have a trans-male body. Working with felting, Monster
Boy uses the material of wool to face the ‘soft-boy’ stereotype that comes with being a transgender man. Felting helps Monster Boy face his own reservations about being perceived as feminine and creates space for him to dismantle internalized gender-biases.
