Humber Galleries welcomes three new staff members

Humber Galleries is excited to welcome three new staff members to their team for the upcoming 2018/19 exhibitions launching in September!


Alize Zorlutuna joins us as our new 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.

Ivana Busuttil joins us in the newly created role of Operations Coordinator.

Ivana is a researcher and facilitator. She engages with community concerns regarding bias, displacement, disparity and discrimination from a systemic, operational perspective. Previously, she worked in policy, administrative law and grant-making environments. Her work has spread across issues related to workplace safety, employment discrimination, fiscal compliance and strategic budgeting. She is devoted to connecting context and content, practice and policy, and community and organization. She is in the final stages of obtaining her Master of Arts in Cultural Heritage Management from the University of Malta. Her thesis audits and analyses the availability and medium of pre-visit information through a disability studies perspective. In her spare time, she is an active member in artist and community spaces.

Safia Siad joins us in the newly crated role of Gallery Assistant.

Safia Siad is a curator, poet, dj, cinephile, and arts programmer. Themes of joy, loving as resistance, exile, liberation, hope, and radical self-care inform her work. She was recently a curator-in-residence at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery and is co-curating a map for this place, the fall 2018 exhibitions at Humber Galleries with Maddie Alexander, which investigate learning and teaching in non-institutionalized ways. She is a member of MICE magazine collective and is currently producing the forthcoming online music series 'cosmic wave radio'. Her work focuses on creating space(s) for those who rarely get to witness themselves reflected in art and media.

Humber Galleries are situated on the traditional territories of the Ojibwe Anishinabe people in Adobigok, meaning “Place of the Alders” in the Ojibwe language. This region currently encompasses several First Nation communities including families from the Otter, Turtle, and Amik (Beaver) clans.

The Galleries are a pair of engagement points for Humber students, faculty, community members, and neighbours: North Space (North Campus) and L Space (Lakeshore Campus). Humber’s polytechnic model is the “third way” between the university and the trade college; it blends the creation of new knowledge and the solving of real world problems. Because we are located within Humber College’s polytechnic environment, Humber Galleries is a space where contemporary art and polytechnic learning come together and influence each other. Humber’s core values of creativity, innovation, problem-solving, adaptability, and collaboration guide our mandate.

Both of our galleries are fully-accessible and barrier free spaces. For additional information, contact, visit, or find @humbergalleries on social media.
