Teresa Ascenção

Teresa Ascenção
Multimedia Artist
& Educator

Born in São Paulo, Brazil.
Based in Toronto.

I am not driven by putting Portuguese symbols out there, but just really being myself… I am just speaking about who I am – Teresa Ascenção.

Teresa Ascenção is a multimedia artist and educator whose artworks transgress notions of gender, seduction and class. Born in Brazil to a family of Azorean immigrants, she has lived in Toronto since the age of 3. Her Portuguese, Azorean, and working-class roots are important themes in her work, in which she reflects on the meaning of these and other identities and lived experiences.
