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. She asks questions about nostalgia, selfhood, power, desire, and loneliness through a language of humor and play. Their work takes shape as performances, socially-engaged interactive work, objects (encompassing ceramics, book-making, how-to guides, and more), and spaces (by means of installations, relationships, and communities). They received their BFA with Honors from the School of Visual Arts, NYC, in 2016. She has since exhibited at galleries, museums, and unconventional venues throughout Canada, the US, Italy, and the UK. They are currently a Master of Visual Studies candidate at the University of Toronto. 

Arezu is a notorious road tripper, beer drinker, candy lover, romantic, and teller of bad jokes.
