Naz Rahbar
17 January – 17 March 2019

For her AGYU Vitrine commission, York MFA Candidate Naz Rahbar evokes the ease and fluidity of how she created images as a child to express her contemporary milieu. She harnesses the urgency of child-like honesty and mark-making to record difficult emotions and tell tales of belonging and becoming. In a chaotic overlapping of drawings, each vitrine speaks to the construction of a transnational queerness which exceeds the boundaries of gender, sexuality, and place.

Naz Rahbar graduated OCAD University in 2009 with a major in drawing and painting and a minor in printmaking. She has been working in the field of education since 2005, earning a Bachelor of Education with a fine arts focus at York University in 2012. She lives and works in Toronto as an artist and co-founder/director of ArtCave, an art collective focused on equitable and creative art education and community art projects.
