Curator in Residence
Alize is an artist, poet, experimental cook, curator, intersectional feminist, committed pedagogue, and life-long learner. Working across disciplines, she investigates issues concerning identity and power, settler-colonial relationships to land, culture and colonial violence, as well as intimacy with the non-human, and technology. Her practice is informed by a critical engagement with historical narratives and their present-day impacts. Drawing on archival, as well as practice-based research, the body and its sensorial capacities are central to her approach.
She has presented her work in galleries and artist-run centers across Turtle Island, including: Plug In ICA, Doris McCarthy Gallery, InterAccess, VIVO Media Arts Centre, Satellite Gallery, Audain Art Museum, Access Gallery, and Toronto Free Gallery, as well as internationally at The New School: Parsons (NY), Mind Art core (Chicago) and Club Cultural Matienzo (Argentina). She received her MFA from Simon Fraser University and her BFA from OCAD University. Alize has curated a number of exhibitions, most notably Restless Precinct (2014), a site-specific exhibition at Guildwood Park in Scarborough ON, in collaboration with Orev Katz, a.k.a. Radiodress. Her curatorial approach seeks to highlight voices and perspectives that storytell edges, in-betweens, and possible futures.
She has been a sessional instructor at OCAD University since 2015, where she teaches a variety of courses in both the Sculpture/Installation and Integrated Media departments.
