Jay Pahre


Jay Pahre is a queer and trans settler artist, writer, and cultural worker based on the traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, Sḵwx̱wú7mesh, and səlilwətaɬ Nations (Vancouver, Canada). Weaving between drawing, sculpture, and writing, his work queries trans and queer nonhuman ecologies as they intersect with the human. Originally from the Midwestern United States, Pahre’s work engages the shifting ecologies of the Great Lakes and Great Plains regions.
