Kika Thorne (Canadian, b. 1964) is a Toronto-based artist, activist and curator. Thorne extends her interest in geometry, physics and non-traditional materials through sculpture, printmaking, film and social practice. Her early work explicitly addressed sexuality, while her more recent work (after 1996) confronts issues of urban homelessness and the climate crisis. Thorne is currently part of Gentrification Tax Action, active in Toronto since 2018. The collective is one of many groups in the coalition Architects Against Housing Alienation representing Canada at the Venice Biennale of Architecture 2023. Thorne received her MFA from the University of Victoria and is currently working on her PhD at York University, Toronto. Her work has been included in exhibitions held at Kino Arsenal and the Berlinale Forum Expanded, Berlin; MACBA, Barcelona; Murray Guy, New York; Or Gallery, Vancouver; Nanaimo Art Gallery; Vancouver Art Gallery; Contemporary Art Gallery, Vancouver; Pleasure Dome, the Power Plant and G Gallery, Toronto; and the Art Gallery of Windsor. Her work was also included in E-Flux Video Rental, which toured the globe for five years. Thorne co-founded SHE/tv and the Anarchist Free Space, participated in the October, February and April Group collective protest sculptures and helped instigate Safe Assembly during the 2010 Winter Olympics.
