A!R Opening Exhibition Reception with Alize Zorlutuna

  • 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm | Wednesday August 16, 2023
  • Evangeline | Ace Hotel Toronto
  • 51 Camden St
  • Free

Alize Zorlutuna is a queer interdisciplinary artist, writer and educator whose work explores relationships to land, culture and the more-than-human, while thinking through history, ancestral wisdom and healing. Moving between Tkarón:to and Anatolia (present-day Turkey) has informed Alize’s practice, making them attentive to spaces of encounter. Alize enlists poetics and a sensitivity to materials in works that span video, installation, printed matter, performance and sculpture. The body and its sensorial capacities are central to their work.

During their Artist in Residence stay Alize Zorlutuna will develop photo-collage work that responds to the context of Ace Hotel Toronto and the artist’s experience as Artist in residence. This exhibition is a part of our year-long partnership with Images Festival.

Images Festival is a platform for the exhibition and discourse of independent film and media art. Created in 1987 as the only alternative film festival in Toronto at the time, Images has spent the last 36 years presenting media works that are challenging in their form and content. The festival showcases the intersection of emerging and established practices, and invites open critical dialogue in the film and media arts community around the political histories of moving image production, distribution, exhibition and representation.
