Ready Player Two hosted two game nights by Toronto-based artist Golboo Amani with her interventionist board game, Unsettling Settlers. Built as an addition to the classic Settlers of Catan, Golboo’s iteration changed the stakes of the game. Players banded together to build a community-oriented future rather than focusing on individualistic competition, and engaged in critical discussions on how a decolonial language can interrupt the ideologies of land-domination-based games. Guests were invited to break normative gaming rules and build a new Catan!

Multi-disciplinary artist Golboo Amani is best known for her performance and social practice works. Amani often relies on familiar social engagements as a point of entry into her practice. Her work has been shown nationally and internationally, including at Creative Time Summit, AGO, Articule, XPACE Artist-Run Centre, Encuentro: Hemispheric Institute, Union Gallery, Blackwood Gallery, Rats9 Gallery, Rhubarb Festival, FADO Emerging Artist Series, TRANSMUTED International Festival of Performance Art, 221A Artist-Run Centre, and the LIVE Biennial of Performance Art.
