Kyla Brown


Kyla Brown is a Toronto based artist, educator and writer. Exploring mapping as a material practice, Brown’s work focuses on navigating city space and daily or mundane processes. She works in a project driven practice that includes drawing, installation and video work.  She also uses twitter as a forum to document durational travel and moving through public space.  Recently her work involves paper manipulation and considering daily routine and the invisible labour of caregiving work. 

She has been an instructor at TSA since 2017 and has shown in solo and group exhibitions in Halifax, London, ON, and Toronto galleries and art spaces, as well as residencies and community projects working with adults and youth. She earned her BFA from NSCAD University, and MFA from the University of Western Ontario.
