Artscape Youngplace, 180 Shaw Street

Through game and playground metaphors, Ghazaleh Avarzamani’s current exhibition at the Koffler Gallery examines the role of empirical experience, memory, psychology and socio-political influences in building both personal and collective knowledge. Considering a range of spaces, structures and devices for interactivity, self-development and play, Never Never Land questions the rules and methodologies that shape an individual’s outlook.

In conversation with Ghazaleh Avarzamani, visual artist Golboo Amani, psychotherapist Agnieszka Gozlan and playground designer Tatiana Zakharova will expand the discussion of educational methodologies, social aspirations and the function of playing in human development.


Presented in association with Ghazaleh Avarzamani: Never Never Land, until March 17 at the Koffler Gallery.
