Basil AlZeri is a cross-disciplinary visual artist living and working between Amman, Jordan, and Toronto, Canada. My practice involves the intersection of art, education, and food, taking multiple forms, such as performance, drawing, video, and ephemeral installations. AlZeri’s ongoing research and practice examines the politics and significance of work in our lives. AlZeri’s work addresses issues of professionalization, careerism, emotional/immaterial/unrecognized labour, and the co-optation of relational practices by socially engaged art. AlZeri’s exhibited and participated in art residencies in Amman, Dubai, Halifax, Mexico City, Montreal, New York, Ottawa, Regina, Rome, Santiago, Tartu, and Toronto.
