Basil AlZeri (CAN/ PSE)

Basil AlZeri is an interdisciplinary, Toronto-based artist working in performance, video, installation, food, and public art interventions/projects. His work is grounded in his practice as an art educator and community worker. He is engaged with the intersection of everyday actions and life necessities with art. Given the context of a space, his work strives to involve the public through gestures of generosity in social interactions and exchanges. AlZeri’s performance work has been exhibited in Toronto (FADO, Nuit Blanche, Whipper Snapper Gallery), Quebec (Fait Maison 14), Ottawa Art Gallery/Creative Cities Conference, and Mexico (Transmuted International Performance Art Festival, Performancear O Morir). Upcoming projects in 2013 and 2014 include a public performance in Montreal (Quebec), as well as projects in Sackville (New Brunswick), Chile and Argentina.
