Arezu Salamzadeh is a Mississauga-based artist who creates things for people to touch and spaces for people to move through. She is interested in examining diasporic culture and identity through a combination of entertainment, play, nostalgia and humor. Her installations often double as interactive pieces that examine the commodification and attainability of art to the general public.
Arezu received her BFA with Honours from the School of Visual Arts, NYC, in 2016. She has since exhibited at the Xpace Cultural Centre, the Small Arms Inspection Building, the Gladstone Hotel, the School of Visual Arts, and other galleries, museums and venues throughout Canada, the US, Italy and the UK. She is currently a Master of Visual Studies candidate at the University of Toronto.
