Arezu Salamzadeh (she/they) is a queer, neurodivergent, mixed-race, Mississauga-based artist who creates objects, performances, music, and spaces for people to interact with and move through. They ask questions about nostalgia, selfhood, power, desire, and loneliness through a language of humor and play. She received her BFA, Honors, from the School of Visual Arts, New York, in 2016 and her Masters in Visual Studies, Honors, from the University of Toronto in 2022. They have since exhibited at galleries, museums, and unconventional venues throughout Canada, the US, Italy, and the UK. Overall, she shares a desire for a space to have discourse around multiple narratives of history, identity, and queerness.
