Golboo Amani
Artist

Toronto
January 31, 2018

Multi-disciplinary artist Golboo Amani is best known for her performance and social practice works. She often relies on familiar social engagements as a point of entry into her practice and focuses on interventions or alternatives to formal sites of pedagogy to include forms, contexts, and content normally excluded from institutionalized knowledge production. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally in venues including the Creative Time Summit, Art Gallery of Ontario, Articule, XPACE Artist-Run Centre, Encuentro: Hemispheric Institute, Union Gallery, Blackwood Gallery, Rats9 Gallery, Rhubarb Festival, FADO Emerging Artist Series, TRANSMUTED International Festival of Performance Art, 221A Artist-Run Centre, and the LIVE Biennial of Performance Art. She will be speaking on the subject of digital curation alongside Lindsay LeBlanc at the next Art Intersections meet-up hosted by Akimbo.ca, OCAD U, and Charles Street Video on February 6 at The Commons in Toronto.

A burlesque workshop led by Dainty Smith and Ravyn Wings developed as a safe space for cultivating embodied self-love through movement and seduction.

Collecting and learning to care for plants from my place of birth. Cardamom, fig, pomegranate, mulberries, poppy, jasmine, turmeric, geranium. Some died, some thrived.

5. SAD remedies
